 **October 2008** I insured my 1955 aluminum airframe 15' travel trailer for $25K, comprehensive,​ collision, $500 deductible by __Progressive Insurance.__ ​ Simple, easy phone call for binder, followed up with documentation (including appraisal.) ​ The annual cost is $285. Liability, I believe, should be handled with an umbrella policy.

-I have found that several of us that have insurance through antique/​collector vehicle policies do not have Liability on the trailers(any trailer, vintage or otherwise) when towed by vintage cars or trucks on those policies. ​ This coverage is specifically excluded whether the trailer is listed on the policy or not.  Liability Coverage, Part A of any automobile policy, is very important and is required by most states on the auto or truck. ​ It is automatically included on trailers when towed by autos or trucks on standard(not antique/​collector) automobile insurance policies. ​ Two major companies well known for supplying antique/​collector car insurance that exclude trailer liability are Foremost through JC Taylor(previously through Zurich or Maryland Casualty) and Haggerty(don'​t know the carrier). ​  There may be more if this is an industry trend. ​  ​Please keep in mind that I'm not referring to Physical Damage, Part D, with Agreed Value/​Stated Value/​Actual Cash Value. ​ This is Liability, and the risk is great if the trailer should breakaway while being towed, even fishtailing into another vehicle causing Bodily Injury to anyone on the road.  A lawsuit(s) could easily cause financial ruin.  ​[[http://​fastcash-advance.co|Fast Cash Advance]]+I have found that several of us that have insurance through antique/​collector vehicle policies do not have Liability on the trailers(any trailer, vintage or otherwise) when towed by vintage cars or trucks on those policies. ​ This coverage is specifically excluded whether the trailer is listed on the policy or not.  Liability Coverage, Part A of any automobile policy, is very important and is required by most states on the auto or truck. ​ It is automatically included on trailers when towed by autos or trucks on standard(not antique/​collector) automobile insurance policies. ​ Two major companies well known for supplying antique/​collector car insurance that exclude trailer liability are Foremost through JC Taylor(previously through Zurich or Maryland Casualty) and Haggerty(don'​t know the carrier). ​  There may be more if this is an industry trend. ​  ​Please keep in mind that I'm not referring to Physical Damage, Part D, with Agreed Value/​Stated Value/​Actual Cash Value. ​ This is Liability, and the risk is great if the trailer should breakaway while being towed, even fishtailing into another vehicle causing Bodily Injury to anyone on the road.  A lawsuit(s) could easily cause financial ruin.  ​
  
 For those of you with antique/​collector insurance using your vehicle to tow your trailer, please check your policy, agent or carrier to verify that the trailer is covered for Liability. ​ Also, if so, please edit this page with the name of the agent or company. For those of you with antique/​collector insurance using your vehicle to tow your trailer, please check your policy, agent or carrier to verify that the trailer is covered for Liability. ​ Also, if so, please edit this page with the name of the agent or company.
