Shopping for insurance for my motor home and just wondered if anyone had any thoughts on some of the different companys out there that
might have good prices and service. I have insurance now but think there has to be a better price out there. Any thoughts welcome
Willie

Best coverage and value for your RV insurance dollar that I have found is:
http://www.rv-insurance.com/
Gilbert RV Insurance.

I am in the insurance business and I still buy from these folks. They have a very strong coverage policy and outstanding prices.

You must be VERY careful insuring your RV, if it is not a companpy that specializes in RV's you are probably NOT properly covered and missing LOTS of extra coverages.

Check them out and compare BOTH price and coverage.

I'm currently using Explorer RV, another agency specializing in RV insurance. They put together the package that most closely suited my particular needs, but that might not be the best for you. Also, rates vary state by state, so the company with the best deal for me in Florida may not have a good deal for you in Delaware. In other words, you gotta shop and think carefully about the amounts and types of coverage you need/want. For example, if your RV is in winter storage several months/year, a policy that lets you suspend/reduce coverage during storage periods might save you a lot of money, even if the individual coverages cost a bit more than another policy.

Some other places to check prices & coverage are the Good Sam Club (don't have to be a member to insure through them), Progressive, and Miller RV Insurance (an agency), and RV America.

The best thing about this site will always be that you can get advise without being put down for asking. I have progressive now and am paying 1450.00 for a year. I have great coverage and full cost replacement so may be why it is on the high side. Driving record is clean and been lucky as never had a accident for all the miles we have traveled. Was a pro driver for 36 years and like I say plain lucky as winter was a bear like so many places. Sorry did not mean to get off the subject just
trying to find a little better and will try some of the companys you have talked about. Again thanks for the info. Willie

I just got a quote from GMAC (was advertised) in the Highway Magazine...they wanted $751 for six months...I now pay that much, for the same coverage, thru Allstate...shop around, there are millions of insurance companys and same amount of prices.

Happy trails

Another good place to check is with RV Alliance America. Like Explorer, Miller and several others, they are a full line, independant agency that is licensed to do business in most states. And they will place you with the company that gives the best coverage for the price, of those that they represent. I like to get several quotes every other year.
