He also brought to light that I was waaaay underinsured for my home, and his rates (adjusted to allow for comparison with my current coverage) are perhaps twenty percent less than I'm paying now. So I'll be going with him for auto and home, for less than I'm paying now, for a WHOLE lot more coverage. And I'll hit him up for bus coverage when the time comes.
Glad I could help! Thank you!

Off hand I don't know any. National General would be a good place to check first. It seems like Progressive is getting away from anything that isn't a professional conversion, that's what I was told here in VA anyway. If trustedchoice doesn't have anything there, I'd search for independent insurance agent or rv insurance <closest large city>, then try narrowing to where you are if you're in a small town.

Speaking of Progressive, I was told that the bus body style was unacceptable for personal or commercial. Professional conversion for RV. If unconverted & personal use they might be acceptable under specialty lines.

This is beginning to smell like the RV industry not liking more affordable competition. The RV industry in Australia is lobbying to make homemade conversions illegal...

I would have to get more information from you on the vehicle and then make some calls. Aside from these conversion calls I've never been asked to insure a bus. But I don't mind checking it out for you!

If you wouldn't mind, call or email me and I can look into it. All our contact information is on Home, Auto, & Life Insurance | Moneta VA/Forest VA | M L Sutphin Insurance Agency, Inc.. And the same info was given in the insurance/title section, http://www.skoolie.net/forums/f18/vi...all-14480.html.

Thanks for the reply.
I did talk to National General.
They won't touch until it is done and I send pictures in of the main rooms... Sleeping/ bathroom/ kitchen /plumbing etc. Then they go from there. All he told me is it needs to "LOOK" professional. Doesn't have to be fancy just no 2*4s showing type thing. But I will check the others as well.

Question... If the state sees it to change the bus title to an "RV" and recognize as such wouldn't that mean an insurance company would see it as that as well even if it is a conversion?

Also thanks for coming on the forum and trying to help answer questions. It is an issue and its nice to have someone to bounce questions off.

Thanks again.

Makes one wonder that's for sure.
