    I was told from the BMV that trailers are exempt from insurance so you don't need to worry about it.

    jajwrigh ... your equipment/utility trailer should be insured under your truck/vehicle policy which does not include the items on the trailer ... your equipment should be covered under your company liability insurance ... at least that is how mine is set up .

    My 7'x16' enclosed trailer is covered under my auto policy as a rider to the auto. It increased the premium by $50.00 per year. Less that $5.00/month.

    Equipment is covered under the business liability insurance, just like Gator-Town said.

    Mine is also covered under my auto policy. If you call and speak with your auto ins. company they could tell you if your already covered.

    It is covered under the tow vehicle's policy. You can buy extra coverage which we have for our landscape/car trailer. It was $20 for 6 months or 12 months I can't remember. It was worth it to us when you have a 4,000 pound $20,000 thousand dollar investment in tow.

    Hope this helps.

    i had it covered under my auto and it only covered me up to 1,000 dollars when our trailer got totaled so you should make sure you check on the amount it is covered up to

    My trailer is covered under my commercial auto insurance policy. It's also included on my liability policy as well.

    Your business liability will not cover what is on the trailer. To cover the contents off the trailer it needs to be added as what is called inland marine. If a mower flies off the trailer and damages someones car or property your auto insurance will pay for that. Liability only covers the other persons property.
