Thanks, yes it is a "fun" tow vehicle. The challenge is remembering to slow down for corners

insuring classic car to tow

Hey I like that Volvord. how bout instead of chains I put a 4x4 chassis under the T-bird. May need that to get the camper out of the back yard in time for camping season. Might get up to 15 centimeters snow here on Friday.

insurance for towing with classic vehicle

Hello everyone, been a week or so since I last updated on trying to get insurance for my T-bird to tow the Trillium. I now have coverage through Echelon for both the car and camper. Agreed value of $9500.00 with 19A endorsement on the car and the Trilly is valued at $4800.00 When using the T-bird to tow the camper it must only be for overnight events such as car shows and fiberglass RV gatherings. I can use my daily driver for regular camping excursions and that works for me . $190.00 per year for both. I used Hutcheson, Reynolds & Caswell brokers in Bracebridge. This has been a real challenge finding proper coverage and more than once I would get different answers from people at the same insurance companys. When it comes to classic vehicle insurance most all the brokers or insurance companys go through haggerty or Lant and I'm not sure if they are not one and the same. Come on camping season I'm ready to roll

Talked to Sue today and because my pickup truck and trailer are not the same year, she can not give me coverage so I will still be looking for an agent.
Thanks Tony.

Sorry to hear that Don. I still don't understand why it is such an issue! Do you think there are many people out there unknowingly without proper coverage? You would think we were crazy high risk rebels towing our little fiberglass campers with old vehicles.

I would think there is quite a few without the proper coverage. My buddy tows with his 1956 Chev but it is on a regular car policy as opposed to a Classic policy. I might end up with that as well by the time you take the driving coverage off for 6 months you are only in the $500 - $600 range for a full year.

I don't get it, either. One can purchase replacement value insurance on just about anything.

I wonder if part of the problem here is that folks are going around looking for "Classic Car Insurance" as if that's a sort of special class. It sure sounds like that's the case with the restrictions agreed to by an earlier poster...

When I bought my pickup a year ago I was actually looking for regular auto insurance, but most companies won't cover older vehicles. If they do offer coverage, they will use NADA values which are pretty much garbage for a restoration vehicle. Anyway, I went with American Collectors and they gave me a very good price. However, I just spoke with them on the phone and they won't cover anything if towing is involved.

Anyone have recommendations on who to call? I'm purchasing a new trailer so I'm in the same boat as Don...otherwise I would give Sue a call.

Chris, here you can obtain but for a price $$ & a bit of paper work on your part, replacement insurance on most cars and trailers. Really surprised your regular auto insurance company doesn't offer such a thing. perhaps they just forgot to mention it as an option.
