I posted the info because a lot of folks seem to feel they have NO options, and I wanted to provide at least the inexpensive commercial policy option in case that might beat no policy at all.

BTW - Progressive won't do "commercial for private use' in Virginia for some reason. AIS will insure in the 48 states:

And I do appreciate the alternate ins. info, thanks.

When I first tried National General Insurance was the only one in the country who would and they would only do liability. If you go bother the DMV about it I believe they have specific requirements about having a stove and toilet etc. When National General asked if I was doing modifications myself or if they were being professionally done and I answered honestly even they turned me down. It's best to say as little as possible. RV Insurance would be cheaper but saying it's just a bus that accommodates under 12 people is easier. Anyway, I had better luck going in person where my girlfriend has her homeowners insurance as well as several vehicles. When he searched for E-450 it didn't come up with his computer so he said ".. Have fun with your new van." And listed it as an RV. So in my experience saying you have a vehicle that is a camper that you just take on trips a couple times a year they are more likely to list as a recreational vehicle.
