The Cost of RVing
State and County Parks – Every state in the union provides and maintains State Parks that provide extensive facilities and services to hikers, campers, and RVers. Sources of information include Internet sites, 800 telephone numbers, brochures, and materials provided at the Interstate Highway System welcome stations and visitors' centers. Many State Parks offer reduced campground fees to senior citizens and other discount programs for RVers and campers.
County and other regional parks are the "sleepers" of the campgrounds and RV resorts. They tend to be very casual and relaxing places to stay, with excellent recreational facilities and the advantage of very reasonable fees.

Liability, Collision and Comprehensive Coverage – While many RVers use the same carrier for their RV as they do for their personal vehicles, RVs have some unique needs that may not be properly covered by your automobile policy. While most automobile policies cover the actual insured vehicle (car, SUV, RV, etc.), you may want additional coverage for the contents and personal effects carried in the RV, liability and medical coverage for anyone injured in your RV while visiting, and temporary lodging and meals if your RV is damaged and unusable.
Fulltimers and RVers on extended trips should review their need for additional coverage options available from carriers specializing in RV policies. Check with your RV camping clubs, such as Good Sam, FMCA, or Escapees; Camping World , or your personal insurance broker for additional information.
