When you are driving to Mexico, your domestic auto or RV insurance will not even be valid, leaving you in hot water if you get in an accident.

When you drive into Mexico, your domestic insurance is rendered void, as it is not recognized by the Mexican government as proof of your financial ability to pay.

Camper, Fifth Wheel and Trailer Insurance: Who Needs It?

Anyone who has a travel trailer, camper or fifth wheel should have insurance; replacing a camper or trailer can be very expensive and painstaking. When you drive in Mexico, your domestic policy becomes invalid, and you are legally required to have coverage to drive in Mexico. If you are involved in an accident and do not have Mexico insurance, you risk being thrown in jail until you can pay your damages.

If you finance your trailer, it is particularly important to get insurance, because you will have no means of paying off the loan if something happens to your trailer. Comprehensive insurance can help pay for the trailer, or replace it in the event that something happens.

Some trailers or camper catch fire, or are stolen; others may be subject to damage in the event of storms or other natural disasters. In situations like this, comprehensive insurance may prove a lifesaver. If your camper trailer is damaged, can offer towing and roadside assistance, and other help to cover the cost of repairs, and to provide you with temporary lodging until you are back up and on the road again.

Many insurance policies also replace the cost of the belongings that you may store in your trailer, including any equipment, valuables, supplies and other items that you would ordinarily bring with you on a trip. This is vital, as most automobile policies do not provide coverages for personal belongings left inside of a vehicle.
