Minnesota Insurance Help

Hello,

I just called Good Sam to give me a quote and they said their underwriters are unable to give me a quote in Minnesota.

I called National General and they need photos of all four sides, plus photos of the restroom, cooking area and bedroom. They quoted me $667 or 6 months.

Where is everybody from Minnesota getting insurance through?

So i bought insurance online back when i went and bought the bus through progressive for my bus here in MN. They even had the option for school bus converted (professional and non-professional.) Was sent a letter 2 weeks later for the cancellation notice like everyone else here. I have not even attempted to get insurance on it yet as i know it wont be ready for me to take for another year or so, my only worry was to just drive it home to the work spot with everything legal. which it was at that time. went to the to license and registration place on the day i bought it here in North Mankato and they were extremely nice, helped me with everything, told them my plan and they gave me new license plates and tabs but gave me "Y" plates for the time being while i convert it. which is farm truck plates, so it is actually considered a farm truck right now, and most police don't mess with farm equipment around here so im pretty safe for the time being. but after i have converted it i will switch it from farm truck to recreational vehicle and will then insure it, which on paper might look a little better than school bus to recreational vehicle. kind of a bummer hearing your good sam and national general story, i figured those were my options after reading extensively on the forum.Here is what i got after doing the farm truck deal. All thats really left is to paint it, which was on my list anyways.
I hope all this works out, if you have any luck with insurance let me know!

Thanks so much for you advice and help!

I am guessing in MN, the DMV doesn't do a vehicle inspection when transferring title from school bus to RV?

I called a local Farm Bureau Insurance agent, got a quote for car, my skoolie and renter's insurance. They asked zero questions on the conversion. Within the quote for everything, the skoolie was $197/yr.

I did the bus to farm truck thing so a friend could use a bus to move.
No problem at the DMV.

8window, what do you have for insurance, is that liability only?
