New Solera owner looking for insurance

My Wife and I just bought a 2011 Solera that we pick up in a week. We rented an RV last summer and decided to take the plunge. Looking forward to some great adventures.

I'll undoubtedly have lots of dumb questions but for now just curious as to who the good insurers are so I can do some comparison shopping. Seems like there are so many choices and it would be nice to narrow it down to a half dozen or less.

Hartford has some excellent coverage
for a very good price

Progressive will take on most
even with a not so perfect
driving record

We have progressive. I would highly recommend them, they are very reasonably priced. we have had 2 claims with them, One being our awning broke they replaced it with no problem. And the last incident was out TT's frame bent (not by anything we did), they totaled out trailer & we have full replacement value so they cut us a check for what we had paid for it 6 years ago. They were very fast, with everything. No waiting or haggling about things. We still have them for our new 5th wheel & are only paying $30 more then what we were for our old TT & we had 2 claims. I would highly recommend them to anyone very easy to deal with, reasonably priced & speedy with claims!!!!

You are wise to check into your choices. Be sure to find out what would be covered or not vs your auto coverage. That part gave me a headache so I am staying with my auto company until things become clearer.

Thanks for the input so far. progressive quoted me a rate of $315.00 per year which seems pretty good from what I've been reading. Coverage seems pretty good too. Got a discount cause I use them for motorcycle insurance plus good driver, etc.

Seem reasonable?

Depends on which plan. I think the lowest plan was for 30 days of use per year. I picked the next one up which I think is 90 days use each year. So for a 2012 Solera I pay $449 per year with Progressive.

Higher deductables will help lower the cost of a policy...to a point. Also different plans offer different amounts of coverage too.

gb73071-
Can you explain the 90 days use each year? Are you limited to how many days of coverage with your policy?

They totally paid for it, no problems what so ever! I was amazed how fast the claim was, from the time we took it to the dealer to be looked at & insurance having to be called to us getting the check was like a month. Which I think is pretty speedy! They have been nothing but great & also a big plus is our pets are also covered by the insurance when they are in either out truck or camper.

If you go to the Progressive site they show different rates based on the number of days you plan to use your RV. It has: less than 30 days, 30 to 150 days, more than 150 days, etc. For myself I predicted 90 days would be the max. Therefore a lower rate than if I was a full timer.
