Question

Am I liable for any damage caused by an RV after I sell it?

I sold my RV last week and the buyer called me a few days later asking if I still had insurance on it because he wrecked into another car. Can I be held liable for any damage caused in that accident?

The only way that you could be held liable for the damage would be if you were still the titled owner of the RV. Once the title is transferred to the buyer then you are no longer responsible for anything that happens with it. Even if you had not yet canceled the RV insurance coverage, the transfer of ownership means that insurance policy would not provide any coverage if it is wrecked. The liability now stands with the new owner of that RV and not with you.
