Because of the age of our camper, we insure it with a "stated value". When I call our agent, he asked what it would cost to replace it if it were a total loss. So I have to do my home work before hand to figure out what the actual value is, not what I paid for it (which are typiclly two totally differant numbers).

Two RV accidents in Idaho in a week have prompted state police to warn RVers to slow down. "The higher the speed, the more dangerous it is, of course," said Sergeant Clint Skinner of Idaho State Police, "but if you're pulling a trailer at 80 mph and the back end of that trailer starts to move or swerve around, it makes it extremely difficult for a motorist to recover that without ending up in a crash." Idaho recently increased speed limits on some sections of roadway to 80 mph. Source: kpvi.com.
