A fifth wheel lets you balance your vacation priorities. You might like the space of a large RV, for instance, but also the ability to unhitch your pickup for local errands. Or maybe you want all the amenities of home — and an easy way to transport dirt bikes to your vacation spot.
Owning a fifth wheel isn’t just about getaways — it’s a big purchase. If you own one, consider getting specialized insurance. And your Farmers® Agent can provide you with information so you can get the coverage you want.
Specialized insurance coverage
Policies cover direct and accidental physical damage to a fifth wheel, including permanently installed accessories such as: awnings, antennas and satellite dishes. The range of covered hazards includes — but isn’t limited to — lightning, flooding, landslides, wind and hail, wild animals, fire and smoke, vandalism and theft, and trees and overhangs.
Here are some situations in which Farmers fifth wheel insurance may help you:
Popular Fifth Wheel options:
A tree damages your 5th wheel
You turn too sharply while maneuvering through a wooded campground — scraping the side of your fifth wheel against a stout oak tree.
There’s a fire in your kitchenette
Your refrigerator’s compressor overheats and starts a fire. You’re able to put it out with an extinguisher, but the kitchenette is ruined.
Your awning is lost in a windstorm
A powerful windstorm rips your fabric awning away from the fifth wheel — blowing it into a nearby lake.
Your fifth wheel is vandalized
You go to pick up your fifth wheel at an outdoor storage lot only to discover a local graffiti artist has used it for practice.
