Everything you need to know about insuring an RV

Owning an American Recreational Vehicle (or ‘RV’) is becoming increasingly popular in the UK, many are embracing the comfort, space and way of life that this type of motorhome has to offer. With this amount of luxury and room, an RV is truly a home away from home.


Before you start thinking about insuring an RV, it is important to take into account the size of the vehicle; American RVs do tend to be larger than European motorhomes so you need to make sure that you’re comfortable driving a large vehicle on some of the narrow roads of Britain and Europe.

If you’re looking to import an RV from America then remember that for a motorhome to be registered in the UK, it cannot be any wider than 2.55 metres and no more than 12 metres long. It’s also worth noting that although there are no height restrictions if the RV is over 3 metres tall then you must have a notice showing the height where the driver can see it.

Unlike caravan insurance (which is optional) making sure that your RV is insured is a legal requirement, as it is classed as a vehicle on the road. Having the right level of insurance will give you peace of mind when you are travelling, on your holiday or at home.
