22í AS Sport - Insurance Cost in WA State

Iím doing my due diligence on the various aspects of potential AS ownership and Iím hoping to get an idea of what annual insurance premiums are going for in Washington State. I heard from someone that anything over $300/year is too high, but I have nothing to base that info on. Thanks for any info you can provide!

That's going to be difficult to answer without knowing the year of the AS. Most insurance companies base their pricing at least somewhat on the perceived value. We just insured a brand new 19' FC in Washington and it cost $345.

I have 2016 23 FB Serenity insured in Oregon for $224.00 year. This is through State Farm and I have two cars, home, rental propery & blanket policy through them.

Seattle being one of the larger cities may be a premium due to traffic etc.

Good call on the year of the model needed: letís just say 2018 22í Sport.

I currently have State Farm for all of our various home and vehicle policies, so will ask them for a quote to see what they tell me.

Iím sure theyíll ask how often the AS will be used and where it will be stored, which will affect the yearly coverage cost.

Price will also depend on whether you want an agreed-value policy for the full purchase price in the event it's totaled, or a policy that pays off on book value only. Also if you get a rider for contents, and how much coverage that rider provides.

Also, don't forget to ask about every discount they offer, to see if you qualify (or can qualify) for any of them. When I first insured my Airstream, the company I chose offered a Good Sam discount of over $400 per year (on an Airstream Interstate, which as a motor vehicle costs a lot more to insure than a trailer). Given the comparatively low price of Good Sam membership, I joined the club and took the discount. You can also ask about AARP membership discounts, AAA membership discounts, defensive driving discounts, etc. You might even get a discount if you get the trailer's VIN number etched into selected panes of glass in the traileró some companies offer that particular discount for motor vehicles because of the theft deterrent factor, so they might do it for trailers, too. Can't hurt to ask!

Great advice on the various potential discounts. Iíll likely end up with quotes from a couple of insurance companies. Itís probably time I did some overall comparisons anyway as itís long overdue.

We have had State Farm for all our boats, cars, houses etc. for many years. The only thing the agent asked me was to confirm that it was a new 19' Flying Cloud. Said the premium on a new trailer was based on MSRP.

So itís based on MSRP, not purchase price. Good to know.

WA AS Insurance

I have a 2009 19' CCD International and live in Woodinville. I pay State Farm $263/year for coverage with a $200 deductible. They came through on a "ding" I had repaired at the dealer in Covington. Very satisfied.

Sounds reasonable. $200 deductible is pretty low as well.
