The American Automobile Association or more popularly known as “Triple-A” (AAA) is well-known for supporting its members with a variety of products and services. Some of these products and services include roadside assistance, insurance, and travel products and services. The catch is that their products and services are only available to AAA members.
The biggest challenge with AAA insurance is that it varies from one region to the next. The AAA is made up of a network of more than 1,000 clubs all over North America. Each club is responsible for their own insurance coverage. Also, insurance is not available in all 50 states.
In the states where they do offer RV insurance, they will cover motorhomes, travel trailers, and campers. The basic RV policy from AAA provides you with more coverage than adding your RV as an endorsement to your auto policy.
Your AAA agent will work with you to customize additional coverage such as lodging and transportation if your RV is damaged during your trip, and personal effects coverage. In addition to their RV insurance, you have the option of upgrading to Plus RV or Premier RV membership which includes the following benefits:
Up to 4 tows for 100 miles each for Plus RV
One tow up to 200 miles and up to 100 miles for remaining qualified tows for Premier RV
Flat tire service
Double extraction service if a second truck and operator is needed
Vehicle locksmith service
Trip interruption and car rental
Discounts and preferred rates
With an upgraded RV membership, the covered trailer types includes the following:
Boat or personal watercraft
ATV, Snowmobile, or motorcycle
Although the AAA website does not state how much their insurance rates are, they offer a variety of discounts based on the insurance coverage. One survey in 2019 stated that new policyholders in Florida saved on average a little more than $500.
As with most insurance carriers, the costs will also vary based on:
Your age and driving history
The state your RV is registered in
The size, make, model, value and year of RV
Your deductible amount
Your credit history
As with many larger insurance providers, it’s possible some of them will drop your coverage for renting out your RV. You will need to inform AAA if you intend to rent your RV since they will have to check with their underwriters to determine which carriers will provide coverage.
However, Roamly offers insurance that lets you rent your RV out without losing coverage. To learn more, or to get a free quote, visit Roamly.com.
Many insurance companies only offer RV insurance for recreational RV use. If you are a full-time RVer, make sure you make that clear to AAA when getting a quote. They will provide you with a customized quote that includes personal liability (similar to vacation liability), medical payments to others, emergency expenses, and personal effects coverage.
Not all full-timer insurance is the same, so be sure to shop around with other insurers who specialize in full-timer coverage, including Roamly.
