Those who add RV insurance to an auto policy,
please read my above post. I have been told not to do that for the reason listed. There is a difference in RV insurance and adding an RV to an auto policy.

When I purchased my new TT in February the dealer recommended Gilbert RV Insurance. My insurance company didn't offer gap insurance in case it was totaled and Gilbert did. I think I remember them asking about coverage of items in the camper. It may give you a choice. Their rate was close to what I could get locally except they gave me almost $50 discount for paying for the entire year in full. here is their web link: www.gilbertrvinsurance.com

I couldn't tell from the website if Gilbert was an insurance agent or the insurance company that insures you? If they are agents then who is the insurance company?

I'm insured with Progressive. When I first started RV'ing the only ones that I heard would do full-timers is Good Sam (which I refuse for the same reason as the OP) and Progressive.

My car is with Farmers and my agent swore that Farmers can insure full-timers through a division called FOREMOST. However, another Farmers agent told me FOREMOST can't compete with Good Sam or Progressive, FOREMOST is more expensive.

If you are truly full-timing but only paying "part timing" insurance, the downfall is that any claim you might turn in would be denied, or you won't get certain coverages that you WOULD get under a full-timers policy. Although I have heard of people who full time and don't tell the insurance company because it gets them a cheaper premium. My experience is.... IT'S NEVER A GOOD IDEA TO LIE TO THE INSURANCE COMPANY! DON'T EVEN DO A LIE BY OMISSION!

I would not lie about anything to an insurance company, knowingly, if you do and get caught, they can just not pay the claim. Foremost is a large insurance company and they are one of the only companies that will insure mobil homes in the US. What is wrong with Good Sam insurance? I insure with them, GMAC is who is the insurance company for Good Sam was a lot cheaper then any I could find in February 2012.

Good Luck

My State Farm policy specifies current NADA value as the amount paid in case of a total lost.

Bank of the West, who holds my mortgage, is perfectly happy with the coverage I've purchased since my loan balance is less that %50 of of current NADA book value.

It should be quite a few years before the NADA book value declines to less than my loan balance.

As far as I can tell, the only disadvantage to using a plain old auto policy, is that you have no insurance on the contents.

Boowho??

Maybe they have changed, but when I contacted them for a quote, they REFUSED to give me a quote unless I provided my social security number. NO WAY! Not for a quote!

Now, insurance companies are using your Credit Profiles at Equifax as part of their rates. Some person with nothing better to do found a correlation between good credit risks and whether or not claims are filed. I am totally against this. This is a mis-use of something that was intended only for credit cards. My state, WA, is trying to get a law to prevent insurance agents from doing this in WA, but it's not gone anywhere.

USAA told us they didn't provide full timer insurance and put us in contact with one of their "partner" companies which wasn't Progressive. Price was way through the roof. We are insured directly with Progressive for a fraction of the price of the USAA partner company. Contents are insured for the amount we selected just like with a household policy.
