Getting rid of Good Sam- National General Insurance. 2 yrs with them on motorhome, Ford Focus, 2007 Tundra. First year 10% increase and better than 40% increase second year. Nothing in our profile changed Nothing! Similar issue in 2010 travel trailer. Low initial quote then increase significantly next 2 years again no claims no issues no violations. Do you homework

I asked about that and was told "Well, that's covered as a 10% limit against your homeowners".

Huh? Don't get that. What does my home have to do with my travel trailer? So I checked around. Progressive is the only company I can find that covers contents separately, and on top of that, let's me choose how much coverage........$2,000, $30,000, choice.

They do two other things that I can't find elsewhere. They are only ones to have a $2,500 deductible, which lowers premium considerably. But........they reduce the deductible by like 25% (or so, not sure how much) each year that you don't have a claim. So, I can get the high deductible/low premium and in a couple of claim free years, the deductible is down to where the others would have been anyway.

I also checked with Good Sam's insurance.........and they were 3X higher premiums than Progressive for same trailer.

State Farm's premium was cheapest of the three, but I don't care for the actual coverage. (I had a similar situation when I got a new Side by Side ATV last year. State Farm treats it as a motorcycle, offers NO discounts, and wanted a fortune. Progressive treats it as an ATV. Motorcycles have booku claims. ATV's have almost none. Premium dropped way down.)

I have not checked anyone else. But clearly, the various companies are quite different.
We also went with Progressive for the reasons you mentioned. They also have a roadside assistance program that at the time my wife was repeating it over the telephone sounded better than Good Sam or Coach Net. Just got our policy in the mail today, so I will be checking it very carefully. Total was just over $400.00 a year, which I though was high, but after checking around, seems pretty reasonable.

I have progressive on the TT and boat and they have provided a good rate. Its important to shop around, the old thinking about the good rate for being loyal to the company in my experience is not true.

If you are associated with the military (past, current, etc.) USAA is the best I have found. I pay $41 every six months for a 28' TT.
