RV Class A Insurance

We have been having some difficulty finding affordable insurance for our 2002 Class A.
We have the min needed by law buy would like complete coverage incase of fire or other.
We have no loan on it either but dont want to loose the $ invested incase of an issue.

National Intersate from Good Sam is one that we are considering.
We have now Statefarm but way up there with no extras for specific rv.

We also considered Progressive and Geico but again way up there.


Any other companies RV have used that have good history or experience with.


We want to have the best insurance before we forget to upgrade and years pass.

We have AAA roadside but swicthing to Coachnet after using AAA and found out they cant even change a tire on large Class A...?

Thks!

I have Blue Sky Insurance for my RV and find it very reasonable. Contact the Tobin Agency rv insurance motorhomes travel trailer motorcycles home all they do is Recreational Insurance. I find them very easy to work with and they represent many different companies. They seem to be able to write for anyone in any state and they offer a free quote form on their website.

We are with Progressive and have minimal need for service except for one breakdown and their roadside service works well except the local tow company was a bit tardy. Premiums are reasonable considering I have a stated value policy which matches what I paid for it.

Also, not sure what you mean by way up there in regards to premium. We all have our own perspective.

I hope you are carrying a really large liability component in case there is an issue. A large rolling hunk of steel and fiberglass can cause a lot of lawyers to salivate.

My RV was with progressive, went up 20-25% this past year which was less then my house went up.

I think it's worth the extra money sticking with a good company. Some ins companies are a pita to deal with if a claim does occur.

I use Geico. I had car insurance with them and when I got my Winnebago Class A I called them and bought insurance with them. A couple of things stand out, they wanted the insurance coverage to be the same on my car and my RV, and they were rather insistent that I needed to be driving the RV sometime during the year. The RV coverage was cheaper than the car (my car is old; my RV is really old).

About 10 years ago I was incolved in an accident that totalled my vehicle that I had just bought. Geico paid out more than I paid for it and issued the check just a few days after getting the claim.

We use Allied a division of Nationwide, I feel they are reasonable as we also have agreed value, so they will pay me what the value of my coach was when I purchased it. Also we had one accident, our fault,
hit a post with the back end of our coach and had no trouble with the claim.

There are no simple answers on insurance.

You need to comparison shop the reputable companies. Price depends on your driving record, location class, and each level of coverage.

I am in Rural Route Class 1. It is the lowest location cost in PA. If I lived in Philladelpia the over-all rate would triple.

Each insurer has rates that vary by state, or even by zip code or county.

Make sure the quotes are one-on-one for all coverage levels. Some like to provide lower pricing via lower coverage.

So, no simple answers. You must shop. Brokers may help.

Best of luck!

I will second Geico. Best price I could find for the coverage I wanted plus road service is included. Ran into some hail this past summer out west, $6000 worth and they jumped right on the repairs when I got home. I like when people do the things they say when they say there going to do it, and that is the way it was.

Try Epic Insurance in Sioux Falls, SD. They specialize in insuring RVs. I originally had BlueSky with them and then Gina at Epic switched me to Nat'l General and saved me over $500.

I have been very satisfied with R. V. Gilbert Insurance for ten years. www.gilbertrvinsurance.com in Florida, I am in NY. They make it really easy and they know their RV Insurance business. You give them your info, what your objectives are, and they do the leg work. They will give you options and take good care of you. Well established, long time in business, very good reputation, a lot of customers.

I also have Blue Sky, have not had a claim yet, fingers crossed, but very reasonable for me.

I'm pretty sure the insurer that Good Sam sells for is National General, not National Interstate. Two different companies. You can get a quote from National Interstate via ExplorerRV.com.

I used National Interstate for several years and had good service from them on two claims. I shop around every few years and last year got an even better deal from Nationwide's Allied subsidiary. I got an additional small discount going through FMCA rather than a general broker.

You can also try www.millerrvinsurance.com - they can usually find a good quote for you.

Not sure of your age but we went AARP - The Hartford. Solid insurance, great service, very low premium for us. We are not full time but spend a great deal of time traveling.
