Another life-long State Farm customer here. I spoke with a USAA representative when I joined the Army years ago about switching over, and they couldn't touch the rates I was paying for State Farm at the time.

Hey there Pahaska! Austin Texas Airstreamer here! My '06 Safari just had a run in with a low lying tree limb on Saturday at my home in Fredericksburg. I am about to call my insurance rep. Where did you wind up getting yours fixed??? I don't know whether I have to take it to a factory site or what. Any experience you can share would be a great help. thanks- Nancy - aka Luckeedux

The "only" dealer in Texas that will do perfect work for you is Roger Williams Airstream in Weatherford Texas. Their phone number is 817-5960050.

They do anything and everything, to the nth degree of perfection.

Your insurance company, depending on who they are, may allow you mileage to take it to them.

Andy

Well ......

I have to disagree with Andy here. Now that David Tidmore is no longer at Weatherford, I would not take mine there or I would stay there and watch them like a hawk. The techs there do great work if supervised. I know of two cases where awnings were improperly installed when David was not there and the trailers were really messed up.

North Texas RV in Dallas is where I would take mine. Not a dealer, but they are a recognized Airstream repair place. That is where Jim Haddaway took his 34 Limited after taking the ditch after a jacknife on a muddy road. I can't find a trace of the repair on his trailer. Another friend had his motorhome repaired there after a local dealer botched the job completely.

Billy Sims in Lubbock is another highly recommended place to go.

Camper Clinic did mine, but the only tech I would trust no longer works there.

I have my home, auto, AS, and umbrella insurance with State Farm. I have been a customer for about 40 years and very satisfied.

Looking for Replacement Coveraage on new AS

I am shopping for replacement coverage for my 2008 27FB International CCD.

I got a quote from Good Sam/GMAC for replacement coverage in the first 5 years. When I called back for clarification and details of the replacement coverage and a sample copy of the policy terms and coverages, they told me that GMAC WILL NOT offer replacement value insurance for any Airstream, and would not give me a reason why.

Who out there has full replacement coverage for the first 5 years or any time period? Who is it with and what does it cost?

Thanks,

Replacement Insurance

jdh350,

Just noticed your question about replacement insurance while looking for an answer to another question. I also have my 2003 Airstream Motor Home with GMAC/Camping World. My policy shows that I am paying for replacement coverage. I just added an 1995 Airstream B190 - they would not do replacement on it saying it was to old and would only qualify for agreed value.
I asked for a quote with all other coverage the same as the 2003. I just got the policy and bill today and it is now twice what they quoted and higher than the insurance on the 2003. The reason - the van conversion was older and parts to repair more expensive and that bodily injury was higher since the van was more dangerous. I am going to look into this further depending on which vehicle I settle in with. I would have liked to have combined everything with my homeowners and auto at Allstate, but my agent (also an RV'er) says they can't compete on the rate. I went with him since he is a neighbor, friend and I like doing business locally. May have to reconsider based on what I am reading here with all the State Farm recommendations... anyway, he's now retired, so no money out of his pocket.

We've had various companies over the years. Over time some companies get better and some get worse. In different states, they can be different depending on whether the state regulates prices and coverage very much.

Progressive does not cover houses in Colorado, but gives a discount if you own a house. It was so much more reasonable, it was worth it to split coverage between vehicles and house. When my wife backed into a neighbor's car in our driveway (I remind her of that as much as possible), Progressive was pretty easy to deal with and our neighbor's car got fixed very well. Of course, we're paying for it in the premiums now giving me another opportunity to remind Barb. Since we own a log house, it's hard to get insurance for it and the best deal we could find was Farmer's even though we believe that company has gone down hill over the years. The Farmer's premium keeps going up fast. I see a lot of people like State Farm, but be aware that over the years State Farm has been sued a number of times for not paying claims; perhaps they have changed their approach.

How did you insure the 67'? We have State Farm too and have for the past 30 years...Same guy....great man. I called his office and was told State Farm (or their books) didn't go back that far. Only to like 86'. Did you insure it in a special category?

It's not often that you get the best service and the cheapest price from the same company!

I just switched to State Farm from Liberty Mutual. Saved a bunch of money. SF had no problem insuring my 77 Minuet or the 63 Globetrotter (which has not yet been restored). However, it could vary by state.

We insure all three (truck, B van, Airstream) with Geico. We also have the ERS coverage for the truck and van, which includes towing. I got our new policy in the mail today, and it shows the ERS being about $11 per vehicle per 6 month period. The Airstream is insured for $10,00 with the understanding if something happens to it I will have to prove we have that much money invested in it (not a problem, I have the $11,000+ in parts receipts).

We have our auto policy through Va Farm Bureau. I called and they added complete coverage on our Airstream also. I have had great service with them since the early 80's.

How about that $9.92 per policy Florida Hurricane Disaster Fund that everybody in Florida now has to pay to bail out the insurance companies?
