Ive got an agreed value policy with safeco not to exceed a certain preset amount. If I wanna pay more yearly I can up the coverage.

In Idaho it takes a certain amount of items to be considered an rv. Like 7 of the 12 things they consider all rv’s to have. I don’t have enough credentials to be considered an rv, but they look at my van to be more like a hard to replace or collectible car.

Do they limit the amount of miles you can put on it in a year?

^^^ Nope.

They also offer a 2 million dollar umbrella policy one of our instructors told me about. He had to up the coverage on all the autos, but It covers his wife’s in home hair and nail salon as well as his motorcycles, even more specifically his old international 4x4’s. He has similar coverages on those as I do with my van. I just can’t afford that right now but I hope to move that direction sooner than later.

I use State Farm. My E350 isn't a full home brew, but it also doesn't meet the specs of an RV. I can direct you to my agent (here in California) if you require. She and her family go to the desert a lot, ride motos, haul trailers, etc. She understands the angles for non-RV.

Update: I tried Safeco -- no luck. Apparently (I didn't realize this) "Safeco" is just a sales channel for Liberty mutual. The Safeco agent went to Foremost for underwriting, who responded that it must be an RV, so this didn't work for me. You guys with Safeco success may have had a different underwriter.

Last hope is State Farm. They have a form for value of customizations (see attached, for everyone's benefit). This is really great, but the agent did say claims would be paid out on an ACV basis (i.e. depreciated if a total loss). Soooooo, let me know if anyone has claims experience on that basis with State Farm, but sounds like worst case it will be the residual value off of a 5-year depreciation schedule. Maybe best case, it will be the value of a similar year used SMB-type Van as traded on ebay at the time of loss.

Alright, it looks like Sate Farm will cover the van customizations ($70k in addition to the base van, ) on an ACV basis, for about $1250 per year. (including liability, etc)

Couldn't get anyone to do an agreed value policy.

Good news is that it finally forced me to get my other autos off my over priced insurance.

Does $1250 sound right? ($250 comprehensive deductible, $1k collision deductible).

My 2020 premium from Progressive RV was ~$1100 ($500 deductible comprehensive/collision, $250,000/$500,000 bodily injury/uninsured motorist, total loss replacement/purchase price). Not full-timing.
So, your premium sounds about right.
Our SMB has the RVIA certification and checks off most of the “boxes” for an RV.
