Travel Trailers: Why You Need Separate Insurance Coverage

Aegis Security

You have your trailer trip all planned. Don’t wait until you are ready to back out of the driveway to remember insurance coverage. Most people assume that they have automatic coverage for travel trailers under either their homeowners’ policies or their automobile insurance. This is not the case and any type of coverage afforded by these policies will not be adequate for your purposes while on the road. A policy from Aegis Security can cover your travel trailer for multiple perils and provide peace of mind during your trip.

Elements of a Travel Trailer Policy

Policies designed for travel trailers cover specific risks, known as perils, such as the following:

  • Emergency expenses
  • Appliances and accessories
  • Collision or rollover
  • Fire, flood or windstorm damage
  • Glass breakage
  • Vandalism

These policies are issued for a limited duration and also offers liability coverage for your trailer when it is serving as your vacation home.


The TRAILBLAZER Program from Aegis Security affords coverage for all of the perils listed above. Additionally, you may purchase coverage for items such as towing costs, fire department expenses and first aid costs. Your coverage includes replacing any necessary parts or accessories with original equipment and accessories. And, you can even purchase coverage for labor costs.

Don’t wait until you hit the road to consider insurance on your travel trailer. Purchase your policy beforehand so that you can enjoy your trip to the fullest, without worrying what might go wrong.
