It is time to sell your used RV and you have decided to use a Houston RV consignment lot? Do you know if your used motor home will be covered by your insurance policy while it is for sale on the dealership’s lot?
Many RV owners do not understand that insurance policies usually exclude coverage while an RV is being sold on consignment. For example, if an RV is involved in an accident during a test drive, and if your policy excludes the time on the lot, the claim may be denied. Think about other things that might happen to your RV while it is at the dealership. What if a storm comes and your RV is damaged? Then there is also fire, vandalism or theft to worry about too. Will your current policy cover those items?
Additionally, many people assume the RV will be covered by the dealership’s insurance. This is rarely the case. You must check with each dealer. Ask what specifically will and will not be covered while your RV is on their lot. The main issue is that of ownership. The dealership does not own your RV they are consigning for you, and therefore, most times, their insurance will not cover it. You have the “insurable interest” because you still own the vehicle. However, even though you carry insurance on the coach, you must not assume you are insured while it is on the consignment lot without first checking with your insurance agency.
Another item to consider is the loan on the RV. If you void your current insurance by leaving your RV on a consignment lot, you might also be breaching your loan agreement. Most loan agreements require insurance coverage during the term of the loan, and if your policy excludes consignment lots, you are not following the terms of your loan.
