As many families find themselves forced to social distance due to the threat of COVID-19, they’re turning to alternative, easier, and safer means of travelling and vacationing. Unfortunately, hundreds of RV accidents occur every year, resulting in serious injuries and death. According to The Wandering RV, approximately 40 million people in the US go RV camping, travelling around 4,500 miles on average each year. Although, by Federal law, RVs are required to undergo crash and rollover testing, RV accidents remain common as drivers make mistakes while handling their RVs, which endanger the lives of everyone sharing the road with them.

What Causes RV Accidents?
It is against California law to operate a vehicle in a negligent and reckless manner that endangers the life or property of another person. Common examples of operating an RV negligently include speeding, operating while tired, or failing to acknowledge the vehicle’s blind spots.
All RV owners and operators have a duty of care to operate their vessel safely and ensure their vehicle is in good driving condition. Unfortunately, many things can go wrong when operating a recreational vehicle.
Most common causes of recreational vehicle accidents include:
- Detached Trailer
- Driving While Intoxicated
- High Winds
- Miscalculated Turns
- Miscalculated Stops
- Overloaded or Unevenly Loaded RV
- RV Blind Spots
- Tired Drivers
