Insurance Recommendation Please -

Getting ready to shop insurance for fulltiming -

Anyone have recommendations? I carried Foremost for years - but hear now Foremost is owned by Farmers - and their rating is pretty low.

Anyone have any recommendation?

Hi Jan, I'm walking out the door, but if you do a search for insurance there are a number of threads on the topic. I'll check back later to see if you got your info.

I hear Progressive is decent, but Geico is up and coming and cheaper. Have had a recent very good experience with Geico on a comprehensive claim on our TV. Their service has been very good so far, just not sure of coverage for full timing.

I'd check with Blue Sky RV insurance. I have it and my in laws have it, they had a claim 3 weeks after they bought their 5th wheel and had nothing but good things to say about them.

Try Blue Sky. I went to them after my in laws had their 5th wheel 3 weeks and filed their first claim and thought they were great.

So do these companies recognize full timing specifically? Do the rates go a lot higher for full timing?

So much to learn!

We had a claim with Foremost

They were very fair with us......we were broadsided and that was the other guy's insurance company....we had a vintage 69 and after we got an appraisal, we got a good offer from them that we took. paula

Don't know if this counts much as I have little to compare to,
being a foreigner, but I must say I was very pleased with signing up
with Progressive, when I insured my Argosy M.H.

Brilliant on-line set up
Loads of ways to set up the insurance
Fair prizing
On-line customer service was second to none
( I had a lot of questions , being a foreigner,
didn't have the required 'social security' number etc.
and it was all fixed swiftly )

I got Progressive too... Full-Timer's package, fairly comprehensive... I used to sell insurance and know that all policies have loopholes. Read your policy and understand what are signing up for, you'll be surprised which things are covered that you wouldn't expect! Got a discount for paying in full... That's a good thing.

You can learn more about Progressive's board of directors here: Progressive Auto Insurance - Progressive Board of Directors

Many, many shareholders each own a small part. Davis Selected Advisers, LP owns more than any one other owner, but less than 12% of the total. The second largest owner is Peter B. Lewis, with less than Davis Selected Advisers, but more than any one other owner. All other owners own less than 6% of the total.

Peter B. Lewis is non-executive Chairman-of-the-Board, and obviously the above poster does not like Lewis's political leanings which drive his charitable and political contributions, and maybe even some of his business decisions. IMO, this is an attempt by the above poster to make his own oblique political statement without answering the OP's original insurance question.

From personal experience, I can attest to Progressive's world-class customer service and fair-pricing.....better than my experience with a couple of the other insurance heavy-hitters. I don't care if Progressive's executives wear boxers, or "tighty-whiteys"......they have been a good company for me and my family.

We are insured by Progressive with our vintage 68

We had to obtain an appraisal (silverpal2), photographs and receipts for an agreed value.....they were recommended by our insurance agent. Safeco (our auto carrier) declined to insure the trailer. So far, we have had no claims. paula

Thanks Chief

I'm new here so I'm not the one to tell anyone how to run and regulate
this forum.
Would ad though, that I co-admin another ( motorcycle ) forum
and politics just ain't allowed there.
Why should it be. That forum, and this one I take it,
is all about that common interest we share,
NOT about politics that will inevitably divide us.
I just does not belong in this kind of forum in my humble opinion.

Maybe this forum has another take on that question.
If so...so be it.

Question On Auto Policy - good or bad?

We currently have our trailer on our auto policy with USAA. From some of the comments I have read, I am thinking that having it on the auto policy may not be best. I have no claims experience so far, so I would like to hear comments on carrying the trailer on the family automobile policy.

Thanks,

Ken

We switched to Allied last year thru Farm & City Insurance Services. They are "endorsed" by the WBCCI. The policy is a little more than what I was paying State Farm, but the coverage is MUCH better.
