bahawton,
Where are you? It seems that quotes vary a lot from state to state. It may be they are quoting some high risk use of that van. What use were you requesting? My van is insured as an RV and I understand commercial insurance is much higher. Are you requesting it be insured for commercial work?

Most likely got a commercial quote. If it’s going to be an RV get RV insurance it’s substantial cheaper. Both RD & I pay a bit oVER $300 a year from Progressive for full coverage, in NH.

Try Allstate. Mine is not insured as an RV and the rates are comparable to my other cars

I read this thread before speaking with Progressive and asked if they were insuring it as a pleasure vehicle or RV instead of commercial vehicle and the agent said it was under pleasure vehicle.

I had mine insured as a pleasure vehicle (NOT with Progressive)when I first bought it for about a year or so and it cost about $1000 as I recall.

I thought there may be a mistake so I just called Progressive again.

After being transferred 3 times and put on hold for 55 minutes, they said they can only insure Promasters as commercial vehicles. They will not insure them as RVs or pleasure vehicles and suggested anyone on this forum who's insured with Progressive check their policy?!?

Geico came in at $1,100/Yr. so no I'll check with Farmers & Allstate...

I tried progressive, I couldn't get them to insure the van as anything but a commercial cargo van which mine is not. Glad others have had better luck!

Mine is with Progressive Commercial and RD's is with plain old Progressive. The commercial arm is the one to contact.

When I got my PM Progressive,with whom I had been insured(Oregon), wouldn't touch it. Called triple A, got expensive insurance with Travelers thru them. At least, in my experience, I know AAA will provide great service wherever I am. It is odd that it's less expensive to insure a rig after you add several thousand dollars of upgrades.
