Professional liability of any sort is intended to afford protection for the named insured's errors or omissions while conducting the business or profession in which he/she/it is engaged. Coverage assumes that the claim comes within the scope of the policy, that the policy is in force at the time of… the claim or when the wrongful act allegedly occurred (depending upon whether it is an "occurrence" policy or a "claims made" policy), that the claim is timely reported, and that there are no other coverage defenses. The coverage afforded is generally twofold, similar to other liability policies: 1. The payment of attorney's fees for the defense of those insured under the policy. The insurer generally has the right to select the defense attorneys and to "control the defense", including, making the decision to settle or to litigate the case. Some policies have a "consent to settle" provision which allows the insured some say in the settlement decision. In all events, the insured has an obligation to cooperate with the insurer and the attorneys in the conduct of the defense. 2. To indemnify the insured for damages for which he/she/it is found legally liable, including the payment of a settlement negotiated by the insurer. Note, though, that the terms of the policy may provide for a liability deductible, so that the insured may have to contribute toward the damages as provided. (MORE)

As insurance laws vary from state to state I recommend you check your state law to make sure the information given here applies to your state. I am assuming that when you say camper you mean a camper that is pulled by another vehicle and not a motor home. If the camper is not self-propelled you woul…d have no need for liability insurance as this coverage would extend from vehicle towing it. As it costs a great deal to develop any type of policy, insurance companies are not going to go through the expense for a policy that is not needed. If the camper happens to be a motor home there are policies that you can purchase for a motor home and you can select the type of coverage you want just as with an automobile. Remember that any item that is financed, whether it is a camper, vehicle, home, etc. most likely includes a requirement to carry physical damage coverage in the contract you signed with the bank or finance company. Violation of this contract will result in them repossessing the item financed. For full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Agency in Georgia and have for the past 22 years. I also worked for a direct writer for the 3 years before that. (MORE)
