RV Insurance

Welcome to our new Follower, DoreenP!  Hi Doreen, thanks for following along with Me and My Dog, Katie.  You didn't list a blog, but let me know if you start one.

I followed lots of RV blogs before I started mine, so I'm thinking some of my recent followers who aren't showing blogs might be thinking about it, or planning to RV in the future.

I'm still working on my insurance for the RV.  So far Progressive seems the best, AARP/Hartford is very close to them, so they are still in the running.  I've heard about Miller Insurance in Oregon, and Roxanne from The Good Luck Duck mentioned them, too, so I sent in an on-line request for quote, and we'll see what comes back.  Maybe working with an agent instead of directly with the companies will bring in a lower quote.

I keep looking at my photos of the RV, she actually looks better in person, which is more than I can say for most of the RV's I went to see after going through on-line photos. I don't know why, but the dirt and wear and chips didn't show in the photos, and  I was disappointed when I went to see them, but that was probably part of the grand plan.  If I loved them, I wasn't ready to buy, anyway, and it would have been really hard to walk away if they were clean and nice and smelled good.  Or at least didn't smell bad. : (

I wish I could keep her here at home, but I need to find a storage facility, which is my next task.  I'll probably store her for two months, hopefully somewhere nearby so I can visit. : )  And I want to start storing things inside her, so my condo will be ready for the estate sale.

No photos today.   But I saw this joke and I thought it was funny:

A young man in Tennessee came running into the gas station and said to a stranger, "Mister, somebody just stole your RV from the gas pump!"
The RVer replied, "Did you see who it was?"
The young man answered, "I couldn't tell, but I got the license number."


I lied about "no photos."  I just saw this and thought I would add it.  It's a little late for San Diego Aztecs, but here's the latest Cardiff Kook outfit:

From Me and My Dog, Katie, have a great Sunday, everyone!  : )


  1. Love the joke! I think I would just want to go sit in her from time to time!

  2. I know what you mean about the deceiving photos. A few weks ago I looked at an RV at a local dealer. It was very rusty inside the outer compartments. Today, it came up for sale on Ebay, and it says very clean RV in the listing. I hope someone does not buy it sight unseen. Although I look on Ebay at RV's to see what the different floorplans are and whats out there, I won't buy one without actually being able to go inside and walk around an RV.

  3. FYI...I went with Progressive for my RV insurance. All my other insurance is with USAA and Progressive is affiliated with USAA for RV insurance. My RV is the same length as yours and I think it's perfect. I hadn't thought about it, but the fifth wheel I lived in for two years also had a rear kitchen. I like having it back there. I just called Public Storage to check on storage and I can get a month for $23. There's a special going on and the first month is only $1 and $22 is for paperwork. Because my street is so busy, I'm thinking I'll use Olivia more if I can drive to her at a storage area and right now the price is right. I'll take her out when I return from California the middle of May and then hit the road. Want to see if we can get together while I'm down there? Maybe we could go for a ride in your new RV!!!


  4. Be sure you check out GMAC insurance, I did a lot of research before I insured our 5th wheel and they were significantly lower. Also have the option to reduce insurance costs while not on the road. Could benefit you particulary when you are just sitting in one location before you start traveling a lot.


  5. We did go through our agent to get progressive, and it may be a bit higher than other quotes, but they are so reliable. When we had our roof damage in New Mexico they were there within hours.


Thank you for your comments - we LOVE them!
