X3 on Geico. Have had them for three years now. Very minor increase last year. Went up $15 total across two cars and Class C RV.


Due to depreciation the above opinions are now worth less than what you paid for them.

We are all good at something.....
I just happen to be a good bad example.

Had Geico until they told me our policy was going up $200.00 a year. Never had any claims with them. So we switched to Liberty Mutual. Cheaper with more coverage.

Since we all have different situations and live in different parts of the country, you're going to get opinions that are all over the map. One will say that X Company is the greatest thing since sliced bread while another will says the company is overpriced.

Find an independent insurance agent and let them shop around for you. They work with several insurance companies and often can find offerings from companies that the general public doesn't even consider. Just tell them the level of coverage that you're looking for and they'll normally come back with several quotes to pick from.

This is a very good answer. I'll a few more things. You are getting a number of responses to just add the camper to your auto policy. A caution on this.

You may need, I suggest you get an actual RV policy. This situation is very different. The camper is not "stored" on your home property. It is not hitched to your truck. Ask your auto policy person if the coverage will still be active when the camper is unhooked from the truck and stored all year at a property you do not own. Ask them, if your camper has some problem and starts a fire etc, will that policy cover your liability to damage done to other people's property whether it be the campground or your neighbors camper next to you?

RV policies are written different, many times they cost more than an auto rider depreciation policy due to the coverage they offer.

Hope this helps

JBarca makes some really good points. Also consider the items inside that are personal property. Your homeowners policy may not cover them as they could consider this a "secondary" home. Even if it is covered is it replacement cost or ACV? Would you end up with another deductible and be faced with turning in a claim on your homeowners insurance?

We have our trailer on our auto policy. We have my truck, two cars, plus my classic car all on the same policy. We also have our home insurance with the same company. It’s all covered by an umbrella policy.

Not saying they are best, but Progressive does offer it.


We've got Progressive too, had a claim once and it was a good experience. We've got Mercury auto insurance but they don't do RV's to the agent put us with Progressive. I believe there are cheaper options however.

We use USAA for everything. We have our trailer on our policy, it is covered whether it is sitting at home or if it's parked somewhere else. We have been happy with the coverage and the easy of submitting/collecting claims. I have been using USAA since 1981 and can't imagine ever using a different insurance company for any vehicle or home.

I believe if you look closely at RV insurance policies, you'll see that the coverage is in effect when the unit is used in conjunction with your vehicle and you are present with both and mobile. If you keep your TT at a park or even at your own recreational property (as I do) you will need to search to find an agent that will cover the TT at a permanent site. Most don't want to cover permanent or stationary units because there is much more liability involved (according to them).
