Default Toter insurance vs motorhome insurance

I am selling my renegade 16tlq toterhome and I am planning an upgrade to either a 22foot toter or something around a 30 foot motorhome conversion. I will probably go with renegade or possibly haulmark. I have national interstate insurance and was told they were the only ones who did toterhomes? I'm located in NC.
Well I think they are charging me too much, so the other day I got a quote from progressive. They were a lot cheaper with better coverage. I called them and gave them the vin number and I was told that the toter really didn't matter they would consider it a motorhome, the gooseneck hitch did not make any difference.

I have a perfect driving record with cdls for 10 years, and national interstate was 1100 year with minimum coverage, progressive was 988 with a lot higher value and better coverage, same deductibles. Anyone run progressive insurance?

We have Progressive via USAA (USAA does not insure boat/rv/toys, partners with Progressive for those items) on our Renegade Motorhome.

Initially when we bought the coach we had an coverage through BlueSky RV Insurance.

Texas Insurance (regulators) permitted an across the board increase (for all vehicle insurance underwriters) and the cost of coverage (would have) nearly doubled.

All our other vehicles are insured with Allstate and Allstate gave us a good rate on the coach so we moved (and saved money too).

WE have spotless records, 15+ yrs - the policy w/ allstate runs us about 900 a year w/ no milage or usage limits a low deductible and replacement coverage.

Some insurance companies pay claims... other insurance companies will do anything, (including turn against you) to avoid paying a claim. Do you research!!!! I operate a business which gives me insight into how companies treat their customers. One of the companies mentioned above places maintaining low rates way above integrity.

Yes they are strong accusations, and I re-wrote the post 2x and tamed it down both times... It was a lot stronger!

That's why I said "do your research" The difference in the way companies treat the customer in a loss situation is astounding. Just use google.

I'm not going to go into further details, but let's just say it's nice to have a pit bull for protection until it turns on you. You better have the resources to ensure that it remains respectful of you.

I'm a happy person and don't go around picking fights... I only mention this out of genuine concern for you folks that may have a claim sometime... again, if you've googled it and feel comfortable it's on you!

Its easy to find dissatisfied customers for nearly every business in the world, using google.
Theres fake news everywhere.

I'm not sure what the mystery is in your avoidance of naming carriers.
The entire purpose of these forums is to share 1st hand knowledge and 1st hand EXPERIENCE.

Just curious, but is george soros tied in with progressive? I thought I had read that somewhere? Not trying to get too political, but I am genuinely interested.

I also have Progressive through USAA on our one-off coach. They sent someone out to take pictures and document what the coach was when coverage started.

We insured our Renegade through Erie Insurance. We drowned our generator and had the stator replaced in Edmonton, AB without a thought about insurance. I called them at the recommendation of the repair shop technician. All Erie wanted was a brief explanation of what happened and a photo of the receipt! There was a check waiting for us when we got home.

I'd recommend Erie for Home, Auto, RV, Marine, and Liability insurance. They have been great to work with.
