A mobile home insurance policy caters to the specific needs of owners of such. The coverage provided by this policy is similar to that of the regular homeowner's policy. However, it is specifically designed to meet the specific needs of the policy holder. Besides the mobile home, coverage also includes personal property and personal liability. Unless specifically excluded in the policy, your policy will cover your home and adjacent structures from all forms of loss. Coverage includes, without limitation, loss or damage by fire, windstorm damage, damage from falling objects, lightning, explosion, and more. Generally the policy will not cover a mobile home while it is in transit.
ACV (Actual Cash Value) or Replacement Cost? These are the two options that you will have to choose between. Surprisingly, most people end up with an ACV policy. This is bad news for the policy holder. ACV policies take into account depreciation of the home when it comes time to pay out for a claim. If your home is 15 years old, they depreciate the estimate to repair your home by 15 years and give you the balance less your deductible. I have personally seen countless policy holders receive as little as 30% of the cost of the estimate. The insurance company will then expect the policy holder to pay the difference. This is pretty common since ACV policies are rather inexpensive to buy and people are often misled into a false sense of protection.
