We had full timer on the trailer, it wasn’t that much more.

Ah, yes, the disappearing deductible. I contemplated raising our deductible to $5,000 this year, but then I canned the idea when I realized that the thing is under-insured as it is (even with the agreed value policy, because of all the work and money we put into it). One way to offset under-insurance is to have little or no deductible.

In a bind for a binder!

Need some advice where to turn. We are planning to take delivery of our first motor home this coming Saturday. A brand new Interstate 19 purchased at Colonial Airstream in Lakewood NJ and we are super excited! Everything was in order, flight reservations from our home in SC, funds wired to dealer, family in the area meeting us with cameras, itinerary planned for trip home, insurance quote from USAA/Progressive (50 year member), etc. Called yesterday to bind the quote starting with delivery 10/13. They refuse to insure us because we live in SC and we are under a tropical storm warning! The little ‘shorty’ is in NJ out of harms way. Progressive’s USAA representative mentioned 2 other companies that partner with USAA that I might try...never heard of them. Frustrated in SC and asking for any advice the forum member might have. Thx in advance.

The thing is currently at Cat 4 (Hurricane Michael). It's stronger than they predicted and it's probably going to sustain hurricane force conditions across a sizable swath of the south. For comparison, Katrina delivered winds near hurricane strength as far inland as the TN-KY border! I had relatives in central MS who were knocked off the grid for 3 weeks, not to mention the property damage.

My point being, I would be surprised if you get any movement on this insurance issue until Michael starts heading back out to sea sometime in the wee hours of Friday morning, thus Monday for resumption of business transactions. This is typical underwriting behavior. It's all-stop when there is a disaster looming. It doesn't matter if you are in the path or not - it's based on the address on your policy.

That being said, I wouldn't mind knowing the names of the other companies Progressive mentioned, and if they are able to offer any stop-gap products.
