Can passengers ride in the camper?

You're going on a trip across Alaska, with your camper and your family. Maybe you're bringing some friends along. (Either way, you're going to have a lot of passengers.) Are your passengers allowed to ride in the camper while you travel, or do they all have to be in the vehicle itself?

What are the most common recreational vehicle injuries?

Unlike some parts of the country where all-terrain vehicles (ATVs) are used perhaps only during the summer, they're used by many across Alaska to traverse hard-to-navigate terrains during all times of the year. No matter what season that they're used in, they pose many risks for those who either operate or take a ride on them.

Why are recreational vehicles prone to accidents?

Having your own recreational vehicle is a dream you've had for years. Now that you have one, it's important that you take precautions to stay safe on the roads. Before you ever drive, make sure that you understand the differences in these vehicles compared to traditional cars and trucks.

Do you need special insurance for ATVs and other vehicles?

Recreational vehicles include many kinds of vehicles, and there is a potential for them to be just as dangerous as passenger cars and trucks. Recreational vehicles aren't just RVs, they're also personal watercraft, boats, off-road vehicles, motor homes, travel trailers and 5th-wheels.

What are some dangerous recreational vehicle mistakes?

When driving a recreational vehicle (RV), there are many things you need to avoid doing so that you don't cause an accident. For example, one mistake you could make in your RV is forgetting to disconnect an electrical cord or sewer hose. While that might not cause an accident right away, it could result in damage to your vehicle that potentially leads to an accident down the road.

What should new recreational vehicle drivers know?

Driving a recreational vehicle (RV) for the first time is a lot of fun, but it's also different from being behind the wheel of any other vehicle. RVs are substantially bigger than other personal vehicles, so they can take time to get used to.
