Question RV Insurance in Canada

Hi gang,
What insurance company do you use? I got a quote from Elite and they seem good but I'm wondering if any Canucks have good tips to pass along.
thanks
Phil

Optional coverage can be purchased from anyone....

Yes, ICBC gives you your plates and basic liability but for optional collision coverage and all-risks I'm looking for suggestions.
Thanks

ICBC is the Insurance Corporation of British Columbia. It is a government crown corporation and all BC motorists must have basic liability insurance with them. They supply the license and registration for the vehicle. Also they administer drivers' licenses in BC.
What I'm looking for is the "optional" coverage for theft, accident, vandalism, etc. that private insurance companies offer. These companies are usually national in nature so non-BC people could also tell me that they use the "xyz" company. That would be helpful.
Thanks!

My van is insured with State Farm. They also provide full insurance on my three trailers.

Are you required to buy separate liability insurance in Canada for a trailer??
In the U.S.,liability for the trailer goes with the tow vehicle automaticly.

Yup the trailer must be insured seperate from the car and in BC the minumum coverage you are required to have on each is:

$150,000 for medical and rehabilitation costs for each injured person, $200,000 for damages claimed by other drivers, $1 million per person if the at-fault motorist is under-insured.

Exerpts from Kipling's "The Old Issue"....

......
Till our fathers 'stablished,, after bloody years,
How our King is one with us, first among his peers.
So they bought us freedom-not at little cost--
Wherefore must we watch the King, lest our gain be lost.

...........

Long-forgotten bondage, dwarfing heart and brain--
All our fathers died to loose he shall bind again.

Powerful even when truncated, (I suggest reading the whole poem)

AFAIK separate insurance for a trailer is not required in Ontario.
