We are a few weeks away from delivery and I am researching insurance. I have quotes from State Farm, GMAC as well as RV America. The last two, have a total loss replacement bit that sounds good. Any others worth a look? I am also a bit concerned about roadside assistance.

Thanks in advance.

you can try Progressive via web or phone or Drive (same company and forms) at your local Drive agent..and depending on which way you go you probably will get different rates even though same company..both can get you full timer coverage if you need it..

If total replacement is a factor for you and you intend to suspend coverage during an off season, be sure and confirm that the insurance company will permit suspension with total replacement coverage.

I found the best deal at Farm and City.

They are a broker and my DSDP is insured with National Interstate thru Farm and City.

My vote is for Dirk's suggestion of Farm and City and they may recommend Progressive. This is where I got my insurance after getting an outrageous price on the renewal notice from GMAC. They search many companies and give you the best quote. I am now with Progressive. It all depends on your zip code.

After much research we selected Progressive. It seems to be the most comprehensive.

FYI, I also did a lot of research and ended up with Progressive, with a very competitive full timer package. Quite happy with price/value but no claims so far - hope it stays that way.

I'm in the process of trying to determine if I should stay with Progressive or go to Good Sam towing coverage. Lots of excellent testimonials with Good Sam for on the road assistance and none, that I know of, with Progressive. I can't seem to get a satisfactory answer from Progressive on what they would do to get me to a reputable dealer when I'm out in the middle of no-where. Would they tow me from the middle of Alaska (where I do plan to go) to a qualified repair facility. I seems from what I read that Good Sam would do just that. What are some thoughts on this?

I suggest Coach Net.

Lots of satisfied coach owners, and that's who I'm going with.

We started out with GMAC through Camping World. They beat Progressive's online quote by a bit. However, the rate immediastely went up due to "adjustments" once I got the policy. Then again in 6 months after having no claims or tockets it went up again. After another 6 months I said "see yah" and went with Progressive. Actually, Progressive sells through independant insurance agents as well as online. They brand the local agent stuff as Drive Insurance. I printed the online quote out and gave it to my local agent who actually came up with a better rate for identical coverage under the "Drive" banner. When renewal time came it actually went down ,not up. I did have a windshield claim that they handled extremely well and again, my insurance went down at the next renewal. I'm sure sold on Progressive.

As to road service - Coach-Net without a doubt.

We are very happy with Progressive. Have been insured with them since 2001. Back in 01 we had a break down and they sent a tow truck out to bring us to the closest dealer/repair facility. No problems. We bought direct and we were able to get the most coverage for the best price so we have stayed with them.

We had Progressive for years and were happy till we had a couple of claims. One for just under $300 and another for $2,600. Each time our cost was increased by 1/3 of the claim so that their payout was reclaimed from us in 3 years each time. I can't remember for sure now but it seemed that this did not happen to those with an agent. We purchase direct. They did get right down to work when we had a claim. The adjuster was there the next day and everything was done pretty fast. I'm not sure why I would continue to pay them for insurance when I paid the claims myself anyway in the end.

I started with Progressive for a few years, then
they raised the price considerably(had one minor
claim in the first year).

Switched to Foremost for much less money. No claims, but they've kept the price the same.

I had Good Sam for road service, then switched to
Coachnet, which I feel is the best provider, quit
AAA, so now Coachnet takes care of six vehicles,
incliding the coach.
