Overall Rating: 8.6 / 10 (Excellent)

Blue Sky by Recreation Insurance Specialist is a recreational vehicle insurance program with a broad range of standard and specialty coverages for virtually all types of motorhomes. The company's innovative RV insurance option includes features such as total loss replacement with no depreciation, deductible buyback, diminishing deductible, and coverage even when the vehicle is being held at a consignment lot. The Blue Sky RV Program is currently not accepting new policy holders, which means interested parties may have to seek insurance elsewhere or opt for similar insurance coverage from a different Recreation Insurance Specialist carrier.

Coverage & Benefits

Blue Sky RV insurance offers a comprehensive array of standard and full-protection coverage including liability coverage, uninsured and underinsured motorist protection, medical payments coverage, comprehensive and collision coverages, Mexico insurance, and 24-hour roadside assistance with multiple towing limit options. The company also provides specialty coverages including total loss replacement, full-timer insurance, adjacent structures coverage, vacation liability, emergency expense and personal effects coverage, and scheduled medical payments, among others.

Blue Sky RV Insurance Cost & Discounts

Cost - 9 / 10

Blue Sky's premiums and deductibles vary by driver, vehicle, and carrier, as their site also functions as an insurance marketplace of sorts. Their main RV insurance program underwritten by Allstar Insurance Group is currently not accepting new membership applications, but Recreation Insurance Specialist can offer potential clients similar specialty coverage from other partner carriers. The company states they have a vanishing deductible option as part of their innovative RV insurance offer, yet no other savings or discounts are listed on their website and it remains unclear whether the diminishing deductible is a free or paid option.

Blue Sky is no longer writing RV coverage and is not renewing policies. Look elsewhere.

I've had the motorhome and truck insured with Blue Sky RV insurance for the past 2 years. Very few companies are interested in insuring "full-timers", which is the category I happen to fall in. The premiums for both the motorhome and truck are more competitive than 2 of the insurance companies you see advertising on TV constantly.

This company canceled my policy without any notice other than an email on the day of cancellation, three months into the first year of the contract. I was 2,000 miles from home, and had to scramble to find alternative insurance before I could move my RV. I have an unblemished record with zero traffic violations or accidents for over 30 years. On asking why I was treated so shoddily, I was told that despite the fact that I was born in and am a resident of the USA, because I happened to have dual citizenship, I was not able to be covered. Unbelievable!
