We can help them avoid any of the insurance issues by just buying their coach outright., the number one RV purchaser in the nation, strongly advises those who choose to sell an RV on a consignment lot to check with the insurance company first to make sure that their recreational vehicle is fully covered against damage.

According to the Family Motor Coach Association, most insurance companies do not cover recreational vehicles that are consigned on a dealer's lot.

“We do not have a single affiliate company that will insure consigned vehicles,” said Jack Ingle, business development manager for Aon Recreation Insurance, a specialty RV insurance agency. “A consigned coach is considered as being, in the language of the insurance contract, 'out of your care, custody and control.' " Ingle continues, “I’ve asked companies for an endorsement that could be added to policies for a charge for owners who want to sell their coach this way, and I’ve had absolutely zero luck.”

There are so many RV owners who place themselves at financial risk by assuming that their consigned recreational vehicle is covered by their current policy. Some of them think that the consignment dealer has some type of umbrella coverage that would cover all of the vehicles on their consignment lot, which certainly is not the case. The dealer's insurance company will typically only cover the vehicles that he or she owns.
