I had full coverage on our motor home, (1979 coachman). It was totaled out July and they paid for the extras we had. If you do a lot of mods and want to get the funds for a replacement, you need to keep ALL of the receipts. I had Progressive. My new home is also with Progressive and also has the truck on it. Both have assumed value as i have all the receipts for everything. Pics will also help if you have to make a claim. Since we full-time it was easier to get a fire safe to keep everything including the titles and anything else we need to show everything done. Dan

Well, 25 years qualifies a vehicle in many places as "Vintage" (Source: One of those places,, Michigan Secretary of State (DMV)).

Thus I'd go with apprasial and then make a decision.

Home is where I park it!

I see a few of you referring to liability at "minimum required".

I used to work for a [too big to fail = bailed out] auto insurance company.
Would it surprise you to know that the higher your requested coverage limits of liability are the LOWER the price for the policy?
Fact, with that company and possibly many other insurers.

Reason: moral hazard. The underwriters figure that anyone looking to get by with only what they are forced by law to carry is likely to cut corners in other respects and may not be a good risk. Whereas someone who requests a half a million liability limit is prudently trying to protect what he owns, and is probably less inclined to risky behavior.

You may not need full coverage for damage to your own vintage RV, but keep your liability limits where you would want them to be in the event that someone ever has a legit claim against you.

I carry liability, medical payments, uninsured & underinsured on my '87 Pace Arrow. My Homeowners on my S&B has offsite coverage for clothes, laptop, tools, etc. I figure that if I total the unit, I'll sell the remains to the salvage yard, & find another unit. Then write it off as a casualty loss on taxes. It Blue Books at $4,900.00. I also have a 2000 Cadillac & 1998 Saturn with the above coverage's. Eddie Elk.
