When we find ways around that its usually with a friend or family members address the client spends some time at during a calendar year. Having an auto with us is non negotiable. Our bus policies pair off of an auto so one begets the other. I know none of this is perfect for your situation but in Liberty's defense... most companies either want many many pictures of a done conversion or wont write this type of policy at all. Our requirements are some of the easiest in the entire industry but as you've discovered not perfect for every situation. Let me know if there are any other questions I can help you with. Again sorry for the delay.
Brian I sent you an email to the email address you listed on your first post. Thanks so much for responding.

You may try National General.. They do bus insurance in several states.. TX may be one of them. However, they will want pics of the bus mostly done. Good luck!

I apologize to all if I have been late on a response.. Our bus is 95% and I don't log on to the forum as much as I used to. Getting ready to leave for our full-time travel takes every minute of my free time these days..
If you have questions about insurance I may be able to answer feel free to email me. Brian.Hamons@libertymutual.com Again sorry for any delayed responses on this thread or in PM.

HappyinTn, do you know of anyone that can help with insurance in NC? We are close to our 1 year anniversary and was told since we have a converted bus, they can't find a policy for us. We will hopefully be relocating to TN in a few months but will need coverage until then. Thanks for any help or advice.

If you filed a claim and it was shown the skoolie was your full time living structure chances are strong you would get your claim denied. My policy 100/300/100 1000 deductible, with uninsured motorist coverage. $889 for 12 months. If this helps.. I can write in TN and GA.. hit me up. If you are in a diff state, try Liberty Mutual in your state. We also write National General, Progressive, Safeco, and Assurant which also do RV/skoolie coverage but with more restrictions (but gives more options).
I may just hit you up later on when funds are more plentiful.
I use to live up on Signal Mtn, but now I'm back up in Johnson City TN about 3 hours from Chatt. Thanks for the info.

I am leaving my agency to professionaly travel

It's bittersweet, but I am leaving my insurance agency effective this Friday (8-2) to professionally travel with my family on our recently finished skoolie. I can continue to write bus policies until then but after, my colleague Patrick Moats will be available to assist. Thanks so much to everyone! I have been able make many new friends here and to help so many of you get insurance on your skoolies. I have enjoyed working with each one of you and hearing your plans for your conversion. Thanks for entrusting me to help you with your pride and joy!!! Good luck to you all.
I'll still be poking around here on the site...

He's being very quick and helpful so far.
