MH Front Window Glass Insurance.

Our current MH-2010 Dutch Aire is presently insured through Foremost Ins as was our previous MH-2004 Dutch Star. For some reason, Foremost does not offer front glass coverage if the MH is registered in the state of Missouri. Are there any 3rd party companies that can/would furnish this coverage only? Not interested in leaving Foremost as they are reasonably priced.

Can't speak directly to your question. However, I had Foremost RV insurance for some time and bought a new motorhome a couple of weeks ago. Foremost gave me a premium of a little over $2200/year. I checked with National General insurance and got insurance with higher coverage limits for $1750/year. For nearly a $500/year savings I switched. That's for insurance in TN.

We insure house and cars through Farmers and checked into Foremost (Farmers "toy" insurance company) and their quotes were really non-competitive and in the "go away" category.

We ended up with National General. First year it was 1/4 of Foremost and this year we checked again it was only about 2-1/2 times as much. We added glass coverage this year with NG for $66/year. Our premium took a big jump this year to $1200, but we've seen similar increases in our Farmers car policies too.

I'm convinced that insurance companies keep raising existing customer's premiums until they go find a better deal with a new company. We had Allstate for years and stopped doing business with them after we found out that we could get house and car at much lower premiums. I'm pretty much resigned to switching insurance companies every 3 years.

According to this source, the state of Missouri requires that the vehicle Comprehensive insurance cover the windshield, at whatever deductible applies to the Comprehensive part of your policy. In other words, you don't need separate windshield glass coverage in Missouri. It's already covered if you have comprehensive insurance.

I can only repeat what my Ins Agt told me and that is ws glass coverage is offered for cars, pu trks in the state of Missouri through Farmers as we have in on our towed car but Foremost does not offer ws glass coverage for "Class A Motor Homes". Am I missing something here in your post? I was in his office when he called the main office. They do offer coverage in other states for class A ws glass but not Missouri.

I would just call the Missouri Dept of Insurance at: 573-751-4126

Ask them what the regulations are concerning windshield coverage.

I'm in Texas and my comprehensive covers the glass as well. Only thing is, the big deductible I have chosen to go with was higher than what it cost for the windshield i had replaced last year. It was cheaper to just pay out of pocket. After that one hit, I found out that Progressive offers a zero deductible glass coverage option. Less than $50 a year covers it, making the decision to add it a no brainer.

I can't imagine Foremost not having some form of glass coverage, even in Missouri. I'd be looking elsewhere for insurance if this was true.

California covers the windshield under Comprehensive. I have $500 deductible on all but the Comprehensive. For about $44.00 more a year, I lowered my Comprehensive to $100.00 deductible. Two windshields replaced, making the $44.00 a savings.

I gave you the source for my info. If you are convinced it's wrong, talk to them, not me. I suppose it's possible Missouri insurance regs do not cover motorhomes, but I would ask the state insurance commisoner's office about that. Be sure to stipulate that it's a private vehicle. not commercial.

I just saw a guy on another RV site mention that he damaged his coach windshield when he clipped an obstruction at the edge of a road. He is getting a replacement windshield with zero deductible. He lives outside Springfield, MS, and is insured by Allied (Nationwide).
