Insurance - WA State - Can't find insurer

Hello:

I am in the process of picking up the school bus I just bought which is partially converted. I'm organizing the RV registration and insurance, etc, but I can not seem to find any insurance companies that will insure a converted school bus.

Do you know a company that I can call who does indeed insure these types of vehicles? I have a super clean driving record.

Any help you could offer would be very much appreciated.

Thank you,

Chrissy

National General tells me they will insure any state but NC, which is unfortunately where I'm from, so I'm switching my registration to SD like most full time RVer's do. Hopefully that will fix it. If they were telling me the truth, you should be able to get insurance with them in WA.

Since it's partially converted it should be registered and titled
as a motor home. We just called our insurance broker and told
them we needed insurance for our Bluebird motor home and
they added it on to our auto policy. We are in Bellevue.

Whatever you end up doing...don't mislead your insurer. The last moment that you want them to find out what you really have is when you are at their door with a claim... they are not forgiving people and might refuse to honor.

Thank you, Dragonpop! Good to know. What broker do you go through? And/or what company ended up covering the bus?

I have my other vehicle insured through Geico, but they don't cover converted school buses.

I appreciate your help!

Hi Georgia:

No solution yet. Working on getting together the correct photos for National General // Good Sam and researching local brokers. I will post the solution when I get there.

Do you have any suggestions yourself?
