Thumbs up FL skoolie!

Hey, another one!
Good Sam seems to be the easier way to go, specially since you've got the inside almost ready (they'll need pictures, I think...).
State Farm has been known to do it, as well, with pics of the finished skoolie.
A neighboring skoolie actually talk me he had good luck with his progressive agent. Don't try online with them, though....they LIE online!

Hope this helps

I have had my car insurance with Progressive for over a decade and a sparkling clean driving record. I am 41 and female. I also have renters insurance with them. They wouldnt touch my conversion with a ten foot pole. I am still working on finishing up a few things but I am going to go through good sam. Good luck. oh I am in Ohio

I went through the Commercial side of progressive.. and got a policy that is commercial vehicle for personal use... (in columbus ohio). . However they did ask if my bus is staying a bus.. (in my case it is)...

I think good sam will insure you as long as you have working plumbing and such.. they wouldnt touch me because im staying mostly a bus..
