What Is A 5th-Wheel Trailer?
5th-wheel campers or trailers are a type of RV (recreational vehicle) with a raised forward section located above an additional wheel, hence the name. Instead of connecting at the bumper, the additional wheel couples in the back of the truck bed. This setup allows for greater maneuverability on the road as compared to traditional 4-wheel trailers.
The addition of an extra wheel also allows for greater interior space, which means 5th-wheelers can sport a large living room area or extra bedroom, providing owners with more real estate for their money. In addition, many luxury RV models tend to be 5th-wheelers as the additional space means manufacturers can fit more high-end appliances and living quarters.
Do I Need Insurance On My 5th-Wheeler?
While coverage for 5th-wheel trailers is not required in most states, it is highly recommended. In the event of a road collision, for example, your regular auto insurance will not cover any damages to the 5th-wheeler, only to your motorized vehicle. Similarly, in the event of theft, your car insurance will not cover the stolen 5th-wheel trailer.
How Much Does 5th-Wheel Insurance Cost?
As is the case for other types of RV insurance, the cost for 5th-wheel insurance varies depending on multiple factors, including the owner’s age, main address, driving history, coverage selection, and the year, make, and model of the trailer vehicle. Our agents at King Insurance can help you find the right type of coverage for your needs to help you save money.
