Yeah, with Blanchard. It was a Progressive commercial policy.

I'll try Progressive directly.
I know USAA wouldn't insure RV's but may they'll do commercial. I'll give them a shot as well.

USAA won't touch it.
Try Kelly Newsome at Knowles Insurance in Leesburg.

Progressive is no longer writing policies for converted buses.

What stage are your conversions in when you all begin shopping for insurance?

Right now I have a roof-raised empty shell. I was planning to wait til after windows and paint to start looking. At least she’s already a motor home (if you ask FL DMV).
