Richfield, Ohio – March 6, 2014 – National Interstate Insurance Company announced that it has enhanced its specialty recreational vehicle insurance product offering in the state of New York with additional coverages including total loss replacement, agreed value, and consignment. 

 “We are very pleased to offer these specialty coverages in New York as they greatly enhance the level of protection for recreational vehicle owners,” said Shawn Los, Assistant Vice President at National Interstate.  “Our goal is to provide a comprehensive suite of options at competitive premiums in order to fully accommodate the broad array of insurance needs of RV owners.  National Interstate has been serving the RV community since 1996, so we truly understand this market and are committed to delivering the highest quality products and services.  Our claims and customer service professionals are specially trained in RV insurance, and can provide a wealth of knowledge and guidance to consumers and agents alike.”

“As an RV owner myself, I can personally attest to the importance of having specialty RV insurance,” said Tony Mercurio, Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer at National Interstate.  “Standard auto policies simply do not protect against the unique exposures faced by RV owners, especially the significant impact of depreciation and total loss.  We have an extensive offering that covers everything from custom equipment replacement, to personal effects, to vacation liability.  It’s all about protecting RV owners and, more importantly, their RV lifestyle so they can head out on the open road without worry.”
