What is a Fifth Wheeler?A Fifth Wheeler is a Recreational Vehicle that uses a fifth-wheel configuration, requiring the coupling to be installed in the tray of a Utility/Truck as the towing vehicle. The tow vehicle supports around 15-25% of the Fifth Wheeler’s weight. The term “Fifth Wheel” originates in North America and used as a synonym for this type of Recreational Vehicle.
Your Fifth Wheeler Insurance Agreed Value – How does that work?When you access the caRVan Insurance online quoting system via the caRVan website, it allows you to select your specific motorhome make, model and series. Note that not all makes are available on our quoting system, where you will need to click on “Can’t Find my RV” and manually enter the make, model, series, length, width and value yourself.
If your motorhome is in our system, it will suggest a low to high range of values, where you can choose a value within that range, that you think your motorhome is currently worth. If your motorhome was not on our system or you choose a value outside the suggested range, your insurance quote will refer to our caRVan team, who will call you within 2 working days, whether they will need to ask you some further questions, to establish if we can accept the value you nominated as the Agreed Value.
Insuring the Contents in your RV and Portable AccessoriesCaRVan Insurance provides an automatic $2,000 of cover for the general contents that is kept in your motorhome. Before you get a Fifth Wheeler Insurance quote, we suggest you complete a full inventory list of all your contents items, to establish how much insurance cover you will need. You can nominate to increase the $2,000 cover, where an additional premium will be payable.
When getting your quote, another great option to consider, is if your use a portable generator, fridge, solar system or satellite outside of your motorhome, if you select to include any of these items under our Portable Accessories cover, you will be covered for loss or damage within a 10-metre radius of where your motorhome is set up. We’re not aware of any other insurer offering this level of cover, so it’s a great option to consider.
Flexible Basic Excess OptionsWhen you request a quote, you can get to choose from 3 basic excesses, being $250, $500 & $1,000. The higher the excess, the lower your premium will be; however, keep in mind that a higher excess will mean you won’t be able to claim the loss or damage where the item or cost to repair the damage is less than your excess.
