A recent quote from GMAC(not so Good Sam) was $1200 more than progressive, and $1300 more than Nationwide. I just don't see how those who claim GMAC was cheaper received those rates. We are both under 50, no tickets/accidents and have great credit ratings. While I don't like progressives politics, $1200/yr is real money.
I thoroughly despise AARP and am too young to quote them anyways.

I have been with them for 12 years. They have switched co 's a few times to get me the best quote.

I don't think you want to drop all coverage while in storage. Fire, theft, vandalism, wind . . .

I just got rates for my coach.
My present insurance - Allstate - $1022 (1000 ded.) no RV Vacation Liability
Good Sam - $1387 (500 ded. getting new quote with $1000 ded. S.B lower)
ExplorerRV - $2015
Progressive - $1713

Allstate and Progressive 300K/500K limits
Good Sam and ExplorerRV 250K/500K limits.

Once I get the new quote from Good Sam, it seems pretty obvious who to go with. Even though Allstate might be slightly lower, their quote includes a a discount for multiple policies (MH and car). Once I get the new Good Sam quote with higher ded. and multiple policy discount, it should almost be a wash with the Allstate quote. The Good Sam does include 100K for RV Vacation Liability which Allstate does not include.

After storing the MH last year in our shop, I called AARP Harford and asked them to drop the coverage thinking our homeowners policy would cover it. They also have our homeowners policy. They informed me that all insurance carriers will not cover a vehicle for damage under the homeowners policy if it is a registered, licensed vehicle with the state....any state. They said we had to at least keep the liability insurance on it for the homeowners insurance to pay for damages from wind, fire, etc. Of course, if your paying to have storage somewhere else, I wouldn't drop any of the coverages. They sent me a check for the unused portion of comprehensive and collision and told me to just call them to place them back on the coach when we started using it again.

Start by getting a quote from your present carrier. Then get several quotes from the RV specialty Co.s. I was amaized at how much less my present carrier was from the other carriers. Not kidding.... my carrier was a third as expensive as the others.
In my case, haveing all my insurance with one, paid off.

I had Foremost, no claims, no problems. I recently went with Good Sam/allied. After 2 months of having the insurance they sent me a letter saying they were going to cancel my insurance because they did not have a copy of my license. I called them, faxed the copy of my license and they said everything should be ok. 10 days later, on 2/19/13, I get a check back from them stating they are canceling me effective 2/20/13 because they don't have a copy of my license. On 2/19/13, I called my Foremost agent and she set up my policies while we were on the phone. 2 days later the Allied agent called and said they re instated my policy. I told her to forget it. Dang, if its that hard to just get the policy, I wonder what it would be like if I had a claim.
Foremost was $500 a year more than Allied. $1050 for Allied and $1550 for Foremost. I asked how much more for full timing and Foremost said $250 a year.

We have Progressive on all 3 vehicles - 4Runner, Harley and MH. When we went full-time we changed it with Progressive and our bill went down $10. Go figure, it was less for full-time thru them then not full-time.
