If you have a repo man after your car and it's on a trailer can he take it off of the trailer?

Yes, if the vehicle and trailer are not inside a building/garage (locked or unlocked) or behind a locked entrance/gate. Technically, according to the courts, it's his car and he has a right to it. Once the courts have determined that you are in default on the loan and the court gives ownership of the vehicle to the lending company, the individual who comes by to pick up THE BANK'S car is just acting as agent to the bank. Not only can he take the vehicle from the trailer, but if there is a resultant inrease in the cost for equipment necessary to take the vehicle from the trailer where you were attempting to PROTECT or HIDE the vehicle, you can be charged for the extra pickup fees.

Does car insurance cover damage caused by trailer detaching from vehicle?

Liability coverage extends from the vehicle that is pulling a trailer, boat, or camper. This means if you are backing up in a parking area and the camper hits another vehicle the liability coverage will cover the damage to the other vehicle. Even if you are going down the road and the trailer comes loose the liability is still attached to the trailer and damage it does to another persons property is covered by liability from the vehicle that it was attached to. The kicker is that damage to the trailer itself is not covered by the vehicle pulling it. You would have to have a policy on the trailer itself for physical damage coverage to cover damage to the trailer.

Does auto policy cover damage done when the vehicle towing the utility trailer is damaged?

In dealing with a towed trailer, the liability coverage will extend from the vehicle towing to the trailer being towed but the physical damage coverage does not extend. This means that if you are backing up at a fuel station and the trailer backs into another vehicle then the liability will cover the damage done to the other car that is damaged by the trailer. Any damage done to the trailer itself will not be covered.

Is a work trailer cover by homeowners insurance?

A trailer is not covered under a homeowners policy whether or not it is used for work. You need to purchase a seperate policy to cover this type of property for physical damage coverage. While it is being towed and attached to a vehicle the laibility coverage from the vehicle extends to the trailer so if you back it into someone's car the towing vehicle's liability insurance will pay for the damage done to the other person's car.
