The National Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds (ARVC) and Marshall & Sterling, which includes a Campground and RV Park Insurance Program that offers business insurance solutions combined with proactive risk management, have officially entered into a Select Partnership. ARVC and Marshall & Sterling will be working together to provide extended benefits to ARVC members and increase Marshall & Sterling’s brand visibility throughout the year within the outdoor hospitality industry.
Already part of the ARVC Marketplace and a frequent collaborator with ARVC during education and events, Marshall & Sterling joins ARVC’s Integrated Partnership Program, taking the relationship to a new level. Marshall & Sterling will provide an exclusive benefit to ARVC members and partner with ARVC in educating campground owners to foster a stronger understanding of business impacts and protection.
“We are thrilled to be partnering with Marshall & Sterling on this Select-level partnership,” says ARVC President and CEO Paul Bambei. “We've had a long and mutually-beneficial relationship with Marshall & Sterling for years and are excited to make it even stronger. Besides increasing Marshall & Sterling’s engagement opportunities with the ARVC community, this partnership will create great opportunities for our members to protect their businesses and learn about key insurance topics from an industry leader.”
Marshall & Sterling will have a visible and important presence at all ARVC educational programs and events, including as a Silver sponsor the 2020 Outdoor Hospitality Conference and Expo (OHCE), the National School of RV Park & Campground Management and providing quarterly blogs to help the ARVC community better understand the value of insurance related topics.
"ARVC represents commitment to excellence in the Campground industry. Marshall & Sterling Insurance is proud to partner with the ARVC community to provide members industry-leading safety resources and insurance," says Tim Dean, Marshall & Sterling CEO.
The education aspect has been a key focus for Marshall & Sterling to assist campgrounds and to help proactively solve issues before they can occur, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic this year.
"Marshall & Sterling has shown that our risk management approach makes a difference. I can't tell you how many phone calls I got from parks that told me that the Marshall & Sterling Campground Covid-19 Toolkit helped get them open during the craziest of pandemic times," says Brian Seigerman, Campground Sales Executive at Marshall & Sterling.
Any ARVC member that places their business insurance with Marshall & Sterling is eligible to receive a complimentary customized risk assessment of their operations. The assessment process will focus each park on top campground safety and risk management priorities. Parks will work with a professional partner to evaluate their risks and apply best practices to their unique campground.

“The impact of insurance savings from reduced claims and peace of mind is priceless,” says Irene Jones, Campground Program Manager for Marshall & Sterling. "The Marshall & Sterling risk assessment process helps parks get out in front of any potential problems and leaves parks better equipped to add innovative park features campers crave. Good safety controls and fewer losses contribute to preferred insurance coverage and premiums."
ARVC members looking for insurance know that claims, incidents and lawsuits can threaten a park’s finances, reputation and insurance protection. Losses zap time and energy and result in higher insurance premiums. Marshall & Sterling focuses parks on managing risks, which results in lower insurance premiums and preferred insurance coverage.
"We don't take risks, we manage them,” says Katy Pagano, Director or Risk Management at Marshall & Sterling.
