An agent told me that my first gator was covered by my homeowners policy as long as I was with it. Has it changed?

Been thinking about heading to Colorado and riding the Alpine Loop in a few months. From what I can tell, Colorado requires a permit for my Ranger, and proof of insurance on it, to get that permit. That's the only reason I'd get it. My agent says it's really cheap.

Theft. They don't usually steal then while you're sitting on them. Some guys leave them at the lease or on the trailer while away from the truck. We own the land, so all of them stay at the ranch all the time. Really cheap to insure, so no reason not to.

If you go to a public range and use it for sporting clays, etc., I've heard some require you to prove you have liability ins.

Full coverage on my crew was almost $400/yr on a stand alone policy. I didn't insure it after the first year. I am going to shop around before I haul it again. Theft is my main concern.

Full coverage on my pickup is only $700 per year. It covers my gator while hauling it.

I got off premises and liability for about $150/yr on my mule. My agent does not over-sell products. She told me my homeowners will not cover it off premise.

Get that in writing from your agent. I've been in the insurance business for almost 20 years and have never seen an auto policy that covered physical damage to another motorized vehicle (or trailer for that matter) that is being towed or hauled. Liability for towed trailers, yes, but physical damage, no.

I'm not claiming to have seen every policy written, and you could very well be correct, but I've never seen it.
