We purchased from Progressive but the issue noted above was not applicable to us or at the time we purchased. We had a host of detailed questions and Progressive was very helpful and when we were able to get bumped up a couple of times the information and knowledge of RVs and the industry was quite impressive. I had detailed discussions with them about issues that arise with weight ratings, exceeding those ratings, etc. You could check others. I believe Good Sams also has an insurance arm.

Importantly, you should have an excess personal liability policy, often referred to as an "umbrella" policy. This provides liabilty protection over and above the liability coverage provided on your home and auto. You should confirm whether this can extend to your RV and whether you have to have the RV specifically listed on the policy for coverage. This could be really important if there is ever a suit and the claim exceeds what your maximum coverage is. If it does, and you don't have sufficiently liability coverage you could put your house, savings, etc. at risk.

If you operate a business in/out of your RV you might need a rider on the above policy or even separate coverage for business use.

If you can find a knowledgeable insurance agent they can help you navigate through all of this.

Finaly tip or suggestion. When you get everything done try to scan the policies so you can take them with you on your laptop or a cheap memory stick so that you'll have the info available if you do have a problem.

Good luck.

We had a claim against Foremost and they were very fair.

When our 1969 Overlander was totaled we were hit by someone with Foremost.....we had an appraisal by Jim Polk (here on the forums as SilverPal2) and we received a very fair offer from Foremost......a division of Farmers....the claim was put in in January and they weren't too busy with RV claims.....p

Thanks though, for the link to the NADA guide. I didn't think they had them for trailers.

I can speak from personal experience that Progressive has recently (as in April of this year) stopped underwriting Agreed Value Policies in certain states (Oklahoma being one of those states). We ended up getting ours through State Farm based on the NADA appraisal value attached to our normal compliment of policies (home, auto, life, etc).

We have our oldie 56 Caravanner insured by USAA for the amount we paid for her. They are great and offer great prices on insurance for any former military personnel no matter how many years of service. We have had them for almost 40 years.

I too am with USAA for the majority of our stuff. That said, they referred me to Progressive for our trailer policy. USAA would cover us under an auto policy, but that doesn't protect us while camping should someone fall, or bonk their head getting out of the trailer etc. the auto part is just for when the trailer is hooked to the TV. Progressive was reasonable in cost, and we worked out an agreed upon value as the NADA guide is almost a third of what it would cost us to replace the trailer with like model and year. (it is a 1997 Excella 34') We worked out the value over the internet via email with Progressive.
