Default Insurance?

Hello everyone!

I have a 1986 Freightliner FLC120 that I want to either use as a tow vehicle or make into a toter home.

Everyone I talk to wont insure the truck. It's either too heavy ( 17,000 lbs ) or they will not insure that kind of truck unless its a commercial trucking policy.

Is anyone else out there running anything this big, and who do you use for insurance?

your problem maybe that its still (titled) as a truck.
our coach is 36k and blue sky had no issue w/ covering it.

bluesky got too expensive (doubled w/out a single claim or infraction / speeding ticket), so we cover the coach w/ Allstate now (w/ the rest of our property & autos).

I discussed this problem with my insurance agent (State Farm) and she told me as long as the title says Motorhome they will insure it. I asked about the number of axles and the answer was "Doesn't matter"! The only thing I need to find out is how to get insurance on the truck before the title gets changed.....

From my (limited) experience, RV/Motorhome regulations are super relaxed.

Here in Louisiana, apparently all it takes to convert a box truck into a motorhome (in terms of title/registry) is to take it to a state trooper's office and have someone look at it.

"Isn't there a list of some regulations that I need to meet? Like a toilet or a bed or 'no seats in the back' or anything else?" I asked.

'Nope, we just need to look and see that it's now a motorhome!' Was the gist of their reply. Super easy.
