Who is your insurance advertiser?
If he is advertising here, we may want to give him a shot at covering our coach.

Yes. Just got renewal from Progressive. Keeps going up every year. Nearly $900 this go around. Was thinking about checking around but I feel like you, there aren't many options left for bus conversions

Interesting...ours dropped a few hundred dollars this year. My hunch is that it's related to where you live and the actuarial tables they use.

I called Good Sam about road service, and maybe I missed the news, but they won't tow Bus Conversion's anymore!

Otherwise, Progressive is my choice on bus, car, and toy insurance.

I had goodsam roadside for years until a few months ago. They sent me a notice saying they no longer cover bus conversions. I switched to coachnet.
Some are called, some are sent, some just got up and went.

Same Here, had it for years but we heard the news about GS through the grape vine and cancelled the account. next to get kicked to the curb was AAA RV premium when they unveiled their new policy to not tow commercial type vehicles to us after stringing us along for 6 hours waiting for a tow last January. now it is CoachNet and Progressive. The rest can suck my lug nuts. :^

We have had Foremost Insurance for 42 years with the same bus and 6 years prior for a class C S&S that was totalled & bought the bus.
When garaged we only carry the basic minimum required liability but trips like the one we're on we reinstate full coverage.

If you have a conversion, coach net is the way to go. The other outfits aren't setup for issues specific to towing a conversion. Won't  be long till they drop the huge class A's either.

My agent has 10+ companies she can insure a bus conversion with including Progressive which is her least favorite only problem she has is with her underwriters Progressive is  the only one that will write the min coverage in AZ 20/50/10 some want,she placed me with State Farm which was easy since it is factory my rate was less than a 1/3 from Progressive which was over 8 grand a year.It still cost $2.300.00 a year from State Farm but I have more coverage 300/500/300 vs the 20/50/10 with Progressive.State Farm only charged me for 3 months during CV-19 which I liked now if they give me discount for fuel
