Default Hello, and an insurance question

Hello all, nice to “meet” you. I am about to purchase 2014 Roadtrek Agile and will pick it up in a couple of weeks. Looking forward to traveling around the New England area this summer. I like the size of this vehicle as I will also be able to use it to attend my kids sporting events which tend to last full days/weekends.

I was looking at insurance quotes and started with Progressive. I was not able to get a quote and received an error based on the weight of the vehicle (8500 lbs). I also talked to them, and they were as confused as I was. I thought maybe they weren’t insuring Roadtrek with the bankruptcy, but tried another make with the “short” sprinter, and received the same message.

Anyone else experience this? Any suggestions on insurance companies and how they handle claims? I am looking at Good Sam as they seem to have good reviews with decent rates.

Thanks

We have our 08 RS Adventurous with progressive. We get our insurance through this agent who specializes in RV insurance.

I would start by checking with the company that insures your other vehicle(s). All the large companies are capable of insuring your van. Prices may or may not be good.

Thank you. Gregmchugh, I will take a look at the broker you suggested. The previous owner is also using Progressive, but from my call into them, they are no longer insuring this type of vehicle. I don’t know if it impacts the longer wheelbase or not.

Avanti, I actually got to Progressive by calling my insurance company. My insurance company doesn’t do RV insurance but have some sort of partnership with progressive.

Thanks again.

Something is odd. We have Progressive for our Class B (Promaster). We've only had one claim, a tree limb fell on the van, and I couldn't be happier with how they handled it.

The insurance scene varies widely by location, due to different regulations and demographics. Companies also change their marketing targets regularly.

Any experience you will read on the Internet about specific companies is likely to have limited value.
