Intro and a question on insurance

I have been lurking for awhile learning about what to look for in a trailer and what fun this is going to be. What a great and supportive collection of folks.

Tuesday we brought home our 2011 27 International FB. We are thrilled. I will be retiring in a year or so and this is going to become a major part of our enjoyment of retirement.

I know I should post some pictures which I will do shortly.

Now to the question. I am looking at either Blue Sky American Adventure or Progressive for my trailer insurance needs. I currently have Progressive through AAA for my motorcycles so might get a discount on a package.

What thoughts do you experienced Airstreamers have for me?

Hi myropa, welcome to the asylum. FYI, I'm currently in the process of ditching Camping World (GMAC), for Progressive; approximate overall savings, 50%.

Progressive is reasonable and fair.

So is AAA.

Welcome! We have a 2008 27' International CCD FB, and have been retired for two years (I have yet to wake up and say I wish I could go to work today) We have Progressive for our Airstream and our bass boat. After 30+ years of owning an insurance agency I found Progressive has the best overall coverage and price. We have all other personal insurance with Nationwide, which extends the umbrella liability coverage to the Progressive policy, this is a big plus.

Wow. The response is amazing. I have a call into my AAA rep about the Progressive coverage. I sent her the Blue Sky quote. I like the new trailer replacement feature for total loss events for the first 5 years. That is very impressive if true.

The new trailer replacement coverage for the first 5 years with Progressive is a big thing! I spent a lot on the Airstream, for five years I would get a new one if something happened to mine. (has to be a total loss)

ThreeFingers...thanks for the heads up.
While the Blue Sky quote clearly states they buy a new replacement trailer for the first 5 model years, the Progressive was not that clear. So it was your response that made me call the Progressive agent. She didn't think that it was a new trailer but just the purchase price of mine. Hence depreciation dependent. On a close reading...you are correct. Progressive also buys a new trailer for the first 5 model years. Then years 6-10 are the purchase price. Since I got an incredible deal...This is very good news.

Thanks for you help!

You are welcome, enjoy your new International, we have put 10,000 miles on ours this year. Everything is still working fine, I did replace the solid alum bars on the awning with stainless steel due to the bars bending, otherwise all is good!
