Either way, you must consider your motor home as your abode, even if for a short term. Just like your home or condo, you will need insurance to protect it from fire, flood, wind, theft, and other types of accidental and unforeseen damages. Additionally, motor homes generally have much more sophisticated appliances and equipment, such as air conditioning and electronic systems, all of which require additional insurance protection to cover replacement or repair.
