In addition, RVshare's Customer Support team will continue to offer a rapid and expert response to accidents, including 24/7 emergency roadside assistance.

We're excited to be partnering with RVshare and Crum & Forster to deliver best-in-class insurance and protection products built with RVshare's unique data and insights. We are moving our industry forward by bringing insurance, data, and technology together to create win-win-win solutions for customers. This is an excellent example of doing just that."
