Progressive vs Blue Sky RV Insurance

After reviewing comments made on this forum, I am seeking opinions on these two RV insurance companies. I see many positive comments for Progressive and not many for Blue Sky. Blue Sky is $300 cheaper annually, but I want reliability if there is a claim. Are there any current or past Blue Sky policy holders out there? I am interested in your comments regarding their service. Thanks for your time.

I am a current blue sky policy holder and former progressive policy holder. Progressive increased their price to the point where I had to change. Progressive claims service was very good. I have not had a claim for blue sky so I can't help in that arena.

Cannot speak to them but I gotta say AARP - Auto & RV insurance through the Hartford. Very reputable and I think they figured out that us older folks are fairly safe drivers.

Never had Blue Sky, but had Progressive and National General (Good Sam). Rates kept rising on Prog and Natl. Switched to the Hartford thru AARP. One claim for both front windshield replacement. No beef, FAST service, professional install at my home, got a survey on both the installer, and the insurance claim, filled both out with high marks. Unless something changes big, I will stick with the Hartford!

Blue Sky will increase their premiums for you also, they all do.

I am still with Blue Sky.

Hit__the__Rhod - same thing here. Had a small pebble crack in my windshield while away from home. No problem.

I had been with several companies but by far AARP - The Hartford. Great Service, Terrific Prices

I suppose you have to be a minimum age to qualify for AARP-Hartford? I'm approaching 50 fast.

I've been with Blue Sky for three years now. They did have a general, across-the-board increase last year but so did a lot of insurance companies. Although I've never had to claim anything yet, several (three off the top of my head) of our friends and/or acquaintances who have their RV policies through Blue Sky have reported fast claims and efficient processing.

One thing that I find odd is that all service contact is through your agent and it's difficult or impossible to actually talk to or correspond with somebody at Blue Sky directly for any service you need on your policy. I believe claims, however, are handled through them or a surrogate.

They are part of the bigger RLI group and of course have an A+ A.M. Best rating.

Yes - you must be an AARP member. For some personal reasons I wouldn't join for 14 years. But because of the huge difference, I set those aside and joined to qualify for AARP - The Hartford.

Well surprisingly my Progressive premium actually went down by $20 this past renewal. I really like the roadside assistance rider since it was only an additional $24 a year for me.

Nope, I just called the Hartford, started my policy and they added the cost (minimal) to join AARP to the first bill. I was 54 when I joined, but I've been getting solicitations to join for at least 10 years or so. I guess I just look OLD!

Clarification: You must be a MEMBER, but don't have to be a specific AGE.
