I will be swapping insurance companies. The major problem that I had was the fact that the camper remained in the same location all year round. So it could not be added to my auto policy. Geico, progressive and a few others would not touch it because of that fact. So I insured it with Foremost, who would also cover my sled and deck, as well as their contents. (Unless of course, there is a flood.)

I am switching to AARP. They don't care that the camper stays up there year round, and it will be added to the auto insurance as etep571190 said his camper was. My comprehensive will cover the camper in the event of another flood occurring. But not my deck or shed or their contents. Not that I am worried about anyone taking either of them..

Switching my car insurance from Nationwide and Camper Insurance from Foremost to AARP... I saved over $600 a year..

I would really do some careful investigation before going with any service endorsed by AARP. They used to push People PC for dial up internet. There were a lot of complaints about it on the internet and that AARP wouldn't give any relief.

The cell phone service, Consumer Cellular, that AARP pushes because it isn't a prepaid plan is actually more expensive to use than many prepaid plans. AARP touts that all you need is a credit card. Big deal. I have Virgin Mobile (which works fine where I live and most places I go). I have to top up only when my balance runs out or a minimum of $20 every three months. I have my account set up to automatically top up $20 every three months or if my balance drops below $5 (the three month clock starts after each top up). The money is taken from my debit card account. I pay $0.18/minute. Last time I checked, it was $0.20/minute for new subscribers. Consumer Cellular, at the time I checked and Virgin Mobile was $0.20/minute, was $0.25.

AARP's medical insurance plans are through United Health Care, one of the poorest health insurance companies around.

Again, I would very carefully investigate any auto or RV insurance plans offered by AARP.

AARP successfully lobbied in AZ several years ago against a bill that would force medical insurance companies to allow patients to choose their own doctors even if they are out of network, claiming it would increase costs. Although I seriously doubted that, even if it did, the increased quality of medical care would have been worth it. The only reason I maintain my AARP membership anymore is for motel discounts (the savings on one stay usually pays for the annual dues).

Thanks Lady,

I will look into it a little deeper. I know several people with AARP insurance but none of them have ever had a claim.

I just tried to add my new Eagle 314BDS to my policy and the insurance company refused because it is on a seasonal site. I was pretty mad as my 3 cars and Coachmen trailer were all on the policy. That was Travelers Ins. I switched all my vehicles to MetLife. They didn't care that it is on a seasonal site and also will cover the awning without a special endorsement. Travelers required an awning endorsement (which they told me after I lost my awning). But it does look like auto policies cover floods.
