Trying to find Insurance for my 1972 Boler

Does anyone have a recommendation for insuring my refurbished Egg for an agreed-upon value? It's a 1972 Boler 1300 and I live in AZ. I've tried Progressive, Nationwide, Haggerty, RV America, Grundy and Chubb. They want to insure it for the $4k I paid for it originally. I have close to $18k into it (don't laugh). I just want to protect it in case of total loss for about $15k. Thanks guys!

Insurance for vehicles does not work the way you are hoping.

Just remember that insurance companies deal with a lot of people attempting to defraud them. So of course they are not going to believe your claim for 15K on a trailer that is typically valued at 4K. You will have to find a company that specializes in writing alternative policies and it won't be an auto insurance company. Then you are going to have to document everything, have it appraised by an agent of the insurance company, etc.

See this link at Tin Can Tourists website:

https://tincantourists.com/trailer-insurance/

As stated in the above link, FCIS (Farm and City Insurance Services) in Forest City Iowa will provide an agreed value policy after you provide them with a professional appraisal.

I don't know if our insurance company works in Arizona, but they've insured Peanut for the $10,000 we have in it, based on some for sale on the internet that were comparable in age and asking price.

It's not much cost, anyway, compared to auto insurance, and they said they frankly have not had a trailer claim yet. Which is good news, really.

It's the Secord Agency in Seattle, WA. 1-206-783-4024.

Someone else on FGRV got trailer insurance through them when I referred them...but I'm not sure what state.

Good luck. We've been satisfied with our coverage through them (they broker a number of companies--the one they helped us choose is MetLife and covers our car, trailer, and house).

On the other hand, we haven't made a claim other than a broken car window, which they handled fine.

So who knows? Their people are personable and seem to know their business.
