Insurance

I contacted Progressive and the said they don't insure Canadian manufactured trailers. OK, where can I get insurance for a Canadian built trailer? Thanks folks. I'm real glad I did not wait until the last minute to settle the details.

We have State Farm and they insure the Escape. They looked it up when we bought both of the used units and it was clear it was a Canadian Made fiberglass trailer. Not to be confused with a USA stick built Escape. Their “replacement value” compared almost exactly with our purchase price. Though I hope I never have to use it.

OK, so I contact Good Sam after calling Progressive and they use Progressive as an underwriter and I had zero problem. I was surprised because I did not mention anything about USAA and the Good Sam agent said "so you're with USAA" . He also said "so you're the only 5.0TA owner in South Carolina". USAA handles my other insurance and they use Progressive for RV insurance. Anyway, I wound up with Progressive for the Escape by going through Good Sam.

I have Progressive insurance on my 21 - Full replacement for the first 5 years. I know they have different rules for different states; that may be why are telling you they don't cover Canadian trailers.

Well that was what I was thinking then I called Good Sam but the agent was surprised when I told him about the conversation with Progressive. After about 5-10 minutes I had Progressive 5 year replacement coverage through Good Sam.

Hmmm...I insured my 19 directly with USAA beginning in 2015 with no problems. Makes me wonder what they will tell me in July when I call to insure my 5.0.

I got insurance last December for our new 5.0TA through USAA, where I have all my insurance, with no problem.
