That's why the company is called "Progressive".

They "progressively" raise your rates! Kind of like KOA: Keep On Adding until you get tired of it and go somewhere else.

No shop that's worth anything would use silicone on a windshield. They use black urethane instead.
Yep, my bad. Sure enough used urethane. Sorry, thanks for catching my mistake.

We have Progressive through USAA as well. The rates seemed competitive and I am also counting on the backing of USAA should I ever have any issues. Hopefully that won't happen.
The other thing that has been mentioned a couple of times in this thread is vandalism of the MH. It got me wondering where that happened. Was it in a campground, in storage, or elsewhere? We are planning on doing some extensive travel for the first time this fall and want the DW to feel secure.

Progressive RV Insurance - Beware

It's amazing to me just how seemingly slow certain information - proved accurate - gets around to the many who truly would want to be aware, and often benefit from it. For example, info posted by "Two2go" about Progressive's "progressive" agenda and Peter Lewis. I've had this company for my motorcoach coverage since Dec. 2010, and they "excelled" in their response to my one and only claim. However, since I have been made aware of their so-called "progressive" agenda I will NOT be re-newing, and will definitely so inform Mr. Lewis of my reason. He couldn't PAY ME to continue with him.

Being a "Moderate Conservative", I commend (and appreciate) your decision.
I dislike any extreme activity/agenda/position.

The insurance business is the largest business in the world. The profits are high and risks low. AIG (plus Bush bailout) is 3rd largest.

Insurance companies love laws requiring everyone to have vehicle insurance thanks to their HUGE lobbying efforts they have thier cake and can eat it too. State mandates insurance but the companies decides who to insure and for how much.

If everyone had insurance, like Britain where you cannot get a driver's license without insurance, the prices would be so much lower. Instead, we pretend everyone has insurance while we pay dollars for uninsured motorist. Cha-Ching! Just think how low prices would be if there were no redlining and we all had no fault insurance.

Insurance companies have way to much clout in this country.

Thanks. Found he he's quite the philanthropist. Does lots of good things with his money and makes his company a good place to work.

I have used Progressive to insure our RV for 4 years now and have had 2 claims. In both instances they have covered the losses to my complete satisfaction. If asked to provide suggestions on how Progressive could have provided better service, I would be hard pressed to suggest any improvements.

I like Progressive, they have been good to me.

What I do not like is threads starting with the words "beware" or "warning", and seldom read them for I know that most post's will be uninformative, and originate from an emotional state.

You are really gonna love the next 16 months of political ads (>$3 billion dollars worth)!!
I agree, "beware" etc. may be an expression of personal experience. Fortunately, we do have options and can make our choices that hopefully are the best for us.

You know,

We live in a free market economy and I am powerless over what a business owner does with his profits. I've met some creepy conservatives and at the same time some lowsy liberals. Like someone said earlier. Ford/Chevy, Progressive/State Farm, Dem/Rep there are bad seeds in all. Do your homework, dont take the first email at face value, and make an informed decision.

With that being said, We too insure and Bank with USAA and have been most pleased. in 2007, they beat GMAC so we switched. Now, they seem to be getting competitive again so we may switch back. I will say this, I will gladly pay more in premiums in exchange for quality service and personality. I have had 2 AUTO claims with USAA and their commitment to satisfaction has been unsurpassed in my experience. With that being said I've yet to have the cause for a Progressive claim on my coach and hope I never do but all these posts have given me quite alot to think about. I thank you all for your opinions even the ones I dont agree with cause that's how we grow. You guys rock.

We also had Progressive on our 04 Dip. We had a claim for backing into a wall that damaged the driver side rear corner. At first I was impressed with how well they handled our claim. I was completely satisfied UNTILL it came time to renew. My new premimum was exactly DOUBLE the prior year. I called to ask why. They had told me when I filed my only claim that it would NOT affect my rates for just one claim. Now they said because the damage was chargable to me this would be my new rate and not only that "this rate will remain the same for the next three years". What that means is they will recover exactly what they paid on the claim before they readjust my rate again!!! We went with STATE FARM and were surprised that they were cheaper for the exact same coverage as Progressive. I say Progressive is less then candid when talking to customers and stating your rates will not change due to only one claim. NOT TRUE!!!!

Mr. Lewis is certainly entitled to give his money to whomever he desires. However, the organizations to whom he donates, are not the average political party, but far left radicals that are known for actually harming the US, our policies, our diplomatic efforts, and, in the long run, our fighting forces. I do not want any of my money going to the groups supported by Mr. Lewis and I am currently researching other insurance companies.
