**Please note that this is only a summary of your insurance coverage. All policies have specific terms, conditions, exclusions, and limitations.

A food trailer endorsement on your Food Liability Insurance Program (FLIP) policy includes coverage for incidents that occur in, on, or around your food trailer when it is unhooked from your towing vehicle and parked on a rented premise. Most general liability policies exclude coverage for trailers and without this endorsement may leave your business exposed for these types of claims.
Please note that the food trailer endorsement only covers liability incidents when the trailer is detached and parked. If you are towing or transporting the food trailer, make sure your vehicle's auto policy covers the trailer. Personal auto insurance may not cover your food trailer if you are using your personal automobile for business purposes. Also, some auto policies may exclude trailers that have license plates or vehicle identification numbers (VIN).
Food trailer insurance from FLIP starts at $449 ($150 for a food trailer endorsement plus $299 or more for general liability coverage). Optional professional liability coverage or additional business personal property limits are available for an additional premium.
Food trailer insurance is an essential part of any business that operates using a food trailer. Not only does it protect you in the event that somebody sues your business or is harmed from your business operations, but it also protects your finances and your business. In addition, many states heavily regulate food trailers and require that they carry food trailer general liability insurance.

WHY DO I NEED A TRAILER ENDORSEMENT?
Most general liability policies exclude incidents that occur in, on, or around your food trailer. A Trailer Endorsement covers those exclusions so you do not have to leave part of your work station uninsured. It is important to note that the Trailer Endorsement only covers liability incidents in, on, or around the trailer when the trailer is detached from your towing vehicle and parked on a rented premise. Make sure your vehicle’s auto policy covers the trailer when it is attached to a vehicle; some auto policies may exclude trailers that have license plates or vehicle identification numbers (VIN).
