Hi Guys, I've recently acquired a cherry 2000 Bluebird/Frieghtliner and am having trouble getting it insured as an RV in FL (or anywhere). I've called State Farm, Progressive, and Good Sam. Progressive says they won't touch a converted skoolie. GS will, but need to show them evidence that it's already converted, which isn't (seats are out). State Farm might have, but they won't let me use the St. Brendans Isle mail forwarding service address I gave them. Any other options out there? Worst case, I'll use a friend's FL address and go back to SF to see if that works.

[BTW, if you've done your conversion, GS will cover you, but DO NOT tell them you plan to live/travel in it full time, as they won't cover you for that.]

Any thoughts or suggestions?

Unfortunately, you may have to see about getting Commercial for private use insurance, at least until its converted; Progressive will touch that (without having to sleep with Flo). Unfortunately, every state is different like I can't get GS (or FMCA, etc) without going through Progressive here in NJ (who drops you like a hot potato once they run the VIN.

Thanks Scooter. Turns out, one of the FL DMV guys (very helpful and seemed knowledgable) asked If I had a CDL...when I said 'no', he said "good! That would make it harder for you to get it titled and insured as a motor home." So assuming he's at least half right, I'll try to avoid getting a CDL.

Yes Progressive insurance is a trip
They will gladly take your money give you a Insurance policy and promptly cancel it
Me I had them put off its start date till end of June
Back in March so what do they do cancel it for the end of July
But me I got them because it did not go in to effect
So I get all my money back
Must keep an eye on Progressive insurance tricky bastards
How they get away with this bull is beyond me
More or less
Robbing people

Now have a new one through good Sam with progressive
Time to see how that goes hope well
I can't afford the commercial policy on the bus 265 a month
Just got a 278.00 a year through good Sam but you know what they say about things that are too good to be true they most likely are not true

Are you sure it is Progressive that they used? I went good sam as others here and it was National General that underwrote it. So far so good at 6 months.

Check Consumer Affairs site regarding poor ratings and complaints on The General. They are not the same as National General.
