Progressive RV Insurance Review: Pros and Cons

RV insurance is a critical component of RV ownership, whether you travel frequently or only a few times every year. All insurance companies offer different coverage options, and some even go through third parties to provide everything you need because they can’t underwrite the policies in-house. Progressive offers RV insurance policies at a reasonable price, but you may find some of the other aspects of their service a bit lacking. If you already have Progressive auto insurance, it may be worth it for the multiple vehicle discounts. Otherwise, think hard about whether you want these insurance policies for your RV.

State Farm RV Insurance Review: Is It Worth It?

Gather any group of RVers, whether in an online forum or around a campfire in a campground, and often the conversation will turn to RV insurance. Why? Because an RV is an investment and having the right insurance is important - and complicated. Why is RV insurance so confusing? One reason for the confusion is that there are so many individual factors that affect the type of coverage you need for your RV. Is your rig drivable or towable? What level of coverage is required by your state or residence? How often do you use it and where do you prefer to park it? Do you own your RV outright or are you still making payments?

Good Sam vs AAA for RVers Compared: Which Should You Choose?

Good Sam vs. AAA for RVers 

Roadside assistance is one of those things that you hope you never need, but when you do need it, it’s vital that it works the way you expect it to. For most Americans, talking about roadside assistance is synonymous with AAA - the American Automobile Association (or CAA in Canada). AAA has been around for about as long as cars have existed, so there’s little wonder it has become a trusted household name.  When it comes to RVers, though, is AAA still the best option? Whether your RV is a motorhome or a trailer, your roadside assistance needs are a little different than the average driver. Among RVers, Good Sam roadside assistance is also a popular option. As a full-time RVer, this decision was important to me. So I compared AAA and Good Sam roadside assistance services specifically for RVs,

When they do, having the right roadside assistance can mean the difference between being back on the road quickly and an expensive, time-consuming disaster.  There are many roadside assistance companies to choose from, and they all make a lot of promises to try to attract your business. The American Automobile Association (better known as AAA) is a household name. “Call AAA” has become almost synonymous with calling for help on the road. Many people join AAA without even considering any of the other options. Better World

Farmers RV Insurance Review: All You Need To Know

An RV is a big purchase, and much like your home or your car, you’re going to want to insure it. Fortunately, there’s no shortage of options out there. However, just because your RV might seem like a home on wheels, an insurance policy for homes won’t do the trick, and neither will one intended for a motor vehicle. You need the best of both worlds to get the job done. It’s a unique offering that not everyone provides. You can opt for your current homeowners or auto insurance provider if you want some multiple policy discounts, or you can choose a company that specializes in RV insurance to get some additional benefits you won’t find anywhere else. Since my family lives in our RV full-time, I’ve done a lot of research into these options and for us, it made the most sense to stick with our current provider, Farmers. While it may not be the best option for you, I’ve never had anything but good luck with my Farmers agent, for several reasons, so I thought this
