Re: Not so good at Good Sam Insurance

We're with Good Sam and really had no problem getting her insured. Our title now says Motorhome and my insurance card says bus conversion. Did all of this and the seats were still in the bus. Just DON"T say yours "is a work in progress". The only problem I had with Good Sam was when they say your payment needs to be in their office by midnight on such & such a date ---it had better be there or it will get cancelled. My payment took less than a day more to get to them and I ended up having to pay a $15 late fee and go thru the reinstatement process. Note to self----send out check at least a week before due. Not worth the hassle.

It is just so strange how many stories and situations occur about the same issue. Sure would be nice to have everything in writing and all worked out before you start your dealings. Fingers crossed for you.

Re: Not so good at Good Sam Insurance

I am going to borrow a few pics to take and get my cus retitled as a MH and hopefully that will get me past the bs.

I know National General will want some pics. If you didn't get asked to send them consider yourself lucky.

I always seem to shake my head at how some people get by with no issues and a different person contacts the same company and gets hammered? I guess it makes the journey interesting.

They now send someone out to personally inspect. Fudging the pics will only make one more un-insurable.

I did the insurance thing BEFORE I bought the bus, converted it, or drove it.
Sorry you're having a rough time of it, but your attitude is likely not helping you achieve your goals.
I talked to insurance companies for weeks. They wouldn't cover a converted bus, so I insured it with a commercial policy. When the conversion is all done, I'll shop around and find an rv policy BEFORE I cancel the commercial policy.

Have you tried getting a commercial policy through a local agent and NOT telling corporate that you've done any conversion?
Try it when you're in a really good mood sometime.

You are gonna find it varies tremendously state to state as well as company to company. Even office to office. All you can really do is shop around in your area and hope for the best.

Talk to other owners in your own area. They are the only ones that can sort out the nonsense based on real world experience that might apply to you.

Maybe you can't get insurance because of your attitude. If we don't know anything, maybe you should take your bus and find a better school bus site. It seems like you are wasting your time here dealing with a bunch of idiots that have insurance and are trying to help you and you're so smart...and wait...here it comes...without insurance.

Yes I have a commercial policy but now that it's converted it's an entity nobody wants to cover so technically speaking it's covered by the commercial policy which they would cancel if they know it was converted
Wish I never got involved in this bs
School buses are built so much stronger than any RV
So now since I've done everything they ask you to do to converted to a motorhome and now it's uninsurable go figure oh and you want me to have a good attitude
So what do I do it's converter no longer a school bus
( that they will insure). You say when you get it converted you're going to go buy a policy who will write that you're talking about
No one is writing coverage for converted schoolbuses and if they are please tell me who is that really a lot to ask who is writing these policies
