Progressive Ins. - Michigan

Hello! We need to get insurance by Thursday on our new camper, I have called a few places including who we have our home/auto thru (Farmers) and the 2 best quotes I have gotten is thru Farmers and Progressive. Has anyone had any experience with either for TT insurance? When I got a quote from Progressive, it seemed liked they knew a bit more about TT insurance then my Farmers agent did which is making me lean towards them. I would love to hear any positives/negatives about Progressive! Thanks!!

Maybe they handle tt's different but when I worked at a motorcycle dealer progressive was an absolute nightmare to deal with as far as claims go. But like I said maybe they handle tt's different for some reason.

We chose Progressive for our Class A. Price and coverage were favorable, and they have been responsive to at least one inquiry I had. I cannot offer any experience on how a claim would be handled as we have not had one ... Thank Goodness.

Also use Progressive for our RV. USAA does not insure RVs, but have an agreement with Progressive. I love USAA, and if they recommend Progressive, that is pretty much all I need to know.

We have Farmers for our class A. They actually sell it through Farmers but insure it through their Foremost subsidiary.

Our prior TT was insured through them as an add on to our TV coverage. We had major damage from a falling tree and they were excellent with the coverage and repairs. They even later replaced the axle and a tire when we determined that it had been bent by the impact.

I would get a quote from Good Sam's, (GMAC) insurance, they know RV insurance
and in February 2012 they were the best that I could do for my 5er. I also insure my truck and the better half's mini-van with them because they were almost $600 less for a full year as compared to GEICO whom I had for 25 years. IMHO you have to be careful just adding an RV to an auto policy, RV insurers know about replacement cost etc. I have read about others who just added an RV to their auto policy and when it was a complete loss the insurer would only pay ACV which was much less then they owed on the RV. Good Luck

Good Sam was actually more expensive for a quote then Progressive. I think it may have something to do with an accident that my DH had, thank goodness it comes off nect year. We decided to go with Progressive, they had the coverage we wanted. They have the total replacement up to five years and purchase price replacement after that.

interesting
have recently used them both
had a claim with Progressive (they did great)
we also have Farmers for the home
ran into the same thing
Farmers does not seem to be as up on trailers
but
think it to be best to keep all policies together with Farmers
their discount for us worked out better than Progressive

although
Progressive is the best for high risk insurance
if one happens to be in that boat

progressive here for over a decade - cars, house and now mh.

had a couple claims on cars - always fast, efficient and easy to work with.

I'd give them 5 stars. (out of 5)

i have progressive in nj for my 2010 motorhome. never had a claim. they just advised me that after this term, since i have had no claims, all deductables will be reduced to 0. sweet.

i check every year and they are still better here than geico, good sam, hartford, and a couple of others.

I have AAA of Michigan. What I liked about them, is I can drop the collision for winter storage.

I have AAA and we are in Michigan as well. They blew away price quotes from everyone. Got quotes from them all including Good Sam. It could cheaper too because my home and cars are with them too. Good luck and happy camping.

We used to have AAA for our home and autos and after DH accident they raised our rates really, really high so we switched to Farmers. AAA won't just insure the camper without having auto with them too.

Nothing against Progressive if you are full-time but left because they would not let me drop to comp only during off season (storage). Moving to GMAC/Good Sams saved me a bundle over the long run. May reconsider Progressive when we go FT in couple years.
