Motorhomes vs. Campers, What’s The Difference?

As beautiful as St. Augustine, FL may be, sometimes you just want to head out for a trip in the wild. If you’re considering buying something for those long camping trips, you may be wondering what the difference is between a motorhome and a camper.

What it really comes down to, as far as the law is concerned, and as far as an insurer like Tim Huber insurance is concerned, is the engine.

If you pull it, it’s a trailer, and you don’t need to insure it unless you want to.

If it has a motor in it, it’s a motorhome. It’s really as simple as that.

Which One Is Right For You?

If you’re just looking for something you won’t have to insure, there you go. But of course, there’s a lot more that goes into the decision than that. One major point to consider here is the size of the camper.

A camper is going to be somewhat restricted in terms of size. It needs to be small enough that you can pull it with a standard-sized vehicle, which means that it’s not going to be as roomy as some of the larger RVs available. This might not be a big deal if you travel light, but if you’re hoping for a full bathroom-and-kitchen setup, you might be somewhat limited. You’ll also want to consider that motorhomes are built to pull all that extra weight, your car might not be.

If you’ve selected a vehicle to spend your summers away from St. Augustine, FL in, Tim Huber Insurance can get you set up with a policy to protect your motorhome and everything in it. Give them a call and see what they have for you.
