Insurance Tips for Your Summer Toys

Summer – a season of fun. Boats, RVs, off-road vehicles, and trampolines can all be a lot of fun. However, they can also be quite dangerous. Accidents occur all the time, and if they do, you’ll want to be protected, Insurance can help protect you if something goes wrong while you’re enjoying a day playing with your summer toys.


Boat Insurance

Personal watercraft insurance is a good idea if you plan on using your boat this summer. Boat insurance can cover the following:

  • Liability coverage – this will help protect you if you get into an accident with another person or boat and are found to be at fault.
  • Physical Damage Coverage – this can help protect your actual boat if it sustains damage. It covers the boat itself, motor, and trailer.
  • Medical Payments Coverage – If someone gets hurt in a boating accident, medical payments coverage can help cover the associated medical costs.


RV Insurance

If you are planning on using your RV, then you should have RV insurance. RV insurance differs from personal auto insurances. Since your RV doubles as both your car and your home, the insurance for it needs to complement that. Your RV insurance can also differ by the type of RV you have. A popup is going to be different than a motor home or even a trailer. It’s best to talk to your insurance agent to see what type of coverage you will need to stay safe while going on an adventure!


Off-Road Vehicles

ATVs, dirt bikes, and other off-road vehicles are notoriously dangerous. While they can be fun to zip around on, the chances of an accident are high. Even if insurance is not required to ride an ATV or dirt bike, having insurance is a good idea. These are some of the types of insurance you can get for your off-road vehicle

  • Dirt Bike Insurance
  • ATV Insurance
  • Side-by-side Insurance
  • 4WD Insurance

You may want to talk to your agent about your individual situation. Depending on your usage and the type of vehicle you have, your coverage could change.



While a trampoline may not have its own insurance policy, it is a part of your homeowners insurance. If someone in your family, or a friend, gets hurt while jumping on a trampoline, it can be extremely dangerous. If you decide to get a trampoline, or if you have one already, let your insurance agent know. They can make sure that your homeowners insurance policy is ready for a trampoline accident.
