Winnebago’s New Insurance Offering Provides Seamless Support for the RV Lifestyle

Share Article

From insurance to roadside assistance to trip planning — all geared around the specific needs of RVers — Winnebago’s range of support services make it easy to “go RVing.”

Specialized insurance helps keep RV living carefree.

“Auto insurance usually has limited coverage for personal belongings, but that’s exactly what a typical RV is filled with,” noted Monica Solberg of Farm and City Insurance Services.

Motorhomes and other RVs combine the mobility of a vehicle with the livability of a home: They are, literally, houses on wheels.

As such, they require a unique ecosystem of support, from highly trained dealer service technicians to the specialized electrical, water and sewer hook-ups found at RV-friendly campgrounds.

Now Winnebago, a name that practically defines the category, has put together a suite of services to support RVers as they enjoy their nomadic life on the go. The newest is RV-specific insurance.

“One of the things new owners are often unclear about is whether they should add their RV to their vehicle policy or to their homeowner’s policy. In fact, like RVs themselves, RV insurance is kind of a hybrid designed to address unique coverage needs,” explained Monica Solberg, RV / Personal Lines Manager at Farm and City Insurance Services, the “engine” behind Winnebago RV insurance. “For example, auto insurance usually has limited coverage for personal belongings, but that’s exactly what a typical RV is filled with.”

Winnebago RV insurance joins an array of offerings that ranges from WinnebagoLife, a popular blog that features lifestyle tips, stories and reviews, to a robust owners group, the WIT Club, to Winnebago Premium Roadside Assistance coverage.

Another area where RVers have unique needs is organized tours (think tall RV, low bridge, for example). Fortunately, Winnebago Outdoor Adventures brings many years of experience, along with that familiar brand name, to the rescue.

A one-stop resource for first-time or experienced RVers, Winnebago Outdoor Adventures offers dozens of professionally guided tours and adventures each year, ranging from shorter, event-specific trips to multi-week meanders across some of the most scenic landscapes in North America.

“With these new services, we’re working hard to make the RV ownership experience as easy and enjoyable as possible,” noted Winnebago CEO Randy Potts. “We believe in the lifestyle, we build a great product, and we want people to enjoy it as much as they possibly can.”
