On a previous trailer the entire side of the trailer de-laminated due to water damage from a seal leak on roof. State Farm paid without any hassle.

You are going to have to tie it to an incident and then you will have to show that you took reasonable action after the incident to limit the damage.

Otherwise, 99% chance they put it back on you that you caused it thru lack of maintenance. Even with an incident, good chance, they claim any rot was maintenance and not covered.

Several years ago I noticed storm damage to my motorhome roof when I looked out an upstairs window while parked at home. Took it to my dealer and they advised roof should be replaced, and I should contact my insurance company. Estimate was $6,000. One call to State Farm and they coordinated with the dealer. A couple weeks later SF cut the check for $6,000.


35 miles from Normal, IL. As close to normal as I'll ever be.

In 2005, our TT roof leaked over winter -- due to ice I'm sure. Found out when I opened the door in spring, and stepped thru the floor where it rotted over winter. Trailer was 2 years old.

State Farm covered it -- roof fixed and new floor.

Side note: in the middle of it getting fixed, I walked around the lot and we found a trailer we liked the floor plan better. In an hour, we traded our old for the new ... dealer treated the old TT as if it was already repaired. Worked out well.

2005, Several years ago, 2009? May as well go down to the corner of Main and 1st St and ask your question to anyone who walks by lol.

Call your agent.

OP, did you or did you not contact your agent prior to this post? Changes the whole flavor of the discussion.

If you can see a tear in the roof from a foreign object, like a tree limb, it may be covered. If it is leaking due to lack of maintenance at sealed seams, probably not.

I hit a tree branch last year, no water damage tho, & SF was very easy to work with & generous .
I doubt water damage from not fixing a leak would be something any insurance would pay on, strictly my opinion.
