Auto insurance provides automatic coverage for a trailer on a liability basis while the trailer is being towed by a vehicle on the road. If the truck has collision coverage under the insurance policy, then it will be covered, less the deductible. However, the trailer would not be covered unless specific insurance is purchased on the trailer.Insurance companies can insure the trailer in various ways. Some add it to the automobile policy for collision damage with a separate deductible. Some other insurance companies write a separate policy for the trailer, again with a separate deductible. If you have insurance on the trailer, it will be covered as a part of the loss. You should talk to your agent or insurance ocmpany and see if you purchased coverage for the trailer for physical damage. If not, there will be no coverage for the trailer in this incident.
