I would like to shop around for RV insurance, and was wondering if anyone could suggest various companies I could get quotes from.

Note that I can not go through Good Sam's for Camping World due to their policy restrictions. They will not cover people who enter in dog shows, horse show, sell at flea markets, etc.

Thanks,
Mark

Have you tried your car insurance company? We have our MH insured thru them.

Many experienced RVers use Progressive as their insurer - as do we. You can contact their "Policy Services" office at 800-888-7764. That number will provide answers or direct you to a number that can. Good luck - Progressive has been good to us and we are well satisfied with them...

Anon (formerly RV Alliance America

The Miller Agency

Explorer Insurance Agency

Foremost Insurance

All of these are companies that specialize in coverage for an RV. If you buy from an auto insuror you will get auto coverage and it will probably have things that are not covered.

If at all possible try to keep all your coverages with the same company,ie: homeowners, auto, RV, umbrella, ect. even if splitting various policies amongst several might save you a couple of dollars. Having all coverages with the same underwriter eliminates the problems encountered in grey areas of overlapping coverages, such as personnal effects covered by different companies, your RV insurer and your homeowners!

That's what we did and when we did the final calculations, the discounts granted by our insurer for "multiple policies" was more than what we saved with split coverages!!

Send a message via MSN to FatDog
some people who responded here appear to have MHs, and other had trailers,
the situation is obviously different for MH's, but aren't trailers covered within the scope of their tow vehicle?
What additional advantages are there to a seperate policy for a vehicle that must always tag along behind something with a comprehensivve policy?

We have had Progressive for a number of years on our motorcycle and for three years on our MH. The second year they went up 60-70 dollars and we stayed w/them. This is the end of the third year and we got a letter that "Progressive ------ Co". is no longer doing business in our state, but their other co, "Progressive --other-- Co". now is and will be proud to continue insuring us for an increase of over $230/year. This is with no tickets, claims or any change on our part.

We tried contacting Gilbert Ins. in FL, (broker), on a recommendation from folks at TiffinRV Network and they can place us with a company out of MN that has been doing RV ins for over 25 years, with the exact same coverages as Progressive for........$500 less/year. Also over $400 less than Camping World/Good Sam.

Fatdog:

You are quite correct, your LIABILITY cover on the TV covers your trailer while attached to the truck. If however something should happen while the trailer is detached and free standing, then it requires stand alone Liability coverage. Physical damage on the trailer and it's contents must be covered through their own policy, that policy will also provide General Liability coverage, as opposed to Auto Liability provided by the TV policy.

That is why I recommand placing all your insurance through the same underwriter, too many chances of "overlapping" and that can lead to arguements between carriers and delays in settlement. As always, this opinion is worth the price you pay for it!!

Bob
