Got some bad new's for y'all who are in NC Friday Allstate told my brother in-law to mail cancellation notices for all of the RV policy's his office was carrying . As a fellow Bus nut he started making some calls and according to his higher up's the great state of NC is going to start requiring all rv's to have commercial ins.A quick check brings my policy from $190 a year to just over $2000 a year. anybody else hearing about this?If so I guess it's time to pick a new home base.

Ulaff, 

If this is true it is time to start our own insurance company that will certainly do well.  How could the losses from RV accidents exceed insurance profits, which is the only reason one could think these guys would be afraid of risk?  With such high fuel costs, a lot of these coaches are just loafing and so the exposure of these companies is far less than it would be if fuel came back down to less than $1.00 per gallon.

If the problem is laws, law makers will have a huge mess on their hands if they start such a controversial bungling.

Anybody who has specific information on this should post it here so we can all work to stop it.  Bill Thomas

Hi folks, I will check with my sources tomorrow, however I do not suspect that NC is going to do that. 
More than likely Allstate, (You're in bad hands with Allstate, LOL) simply wants to get out of the RV business here for awhile.  Insurance companies do this all of the time, go in and out of markets!
I suspect that your brother got an answer that just sounded good to apease him.

Like Jack, I too will be checking with my NC carrier on Monday, Nationwide, and will try to verify what was stated here as fact...with all due respect I again agree with Jack that it's probably an Allstate thing. 

Allstate, State Farm and a few others canceled sooo many home owners policies a couple of years ago after the FL hurricanes simply for the reason that they didn't want to pay off if it happened again.

All is not as it seems....people will use every excuse to BS you into believing that 'it isn't our fault'...when it is.

Some weeks ago I was in a Wal-Mart store in our home town in NC and saw a sign at the checkout stating that "Anyone attempting to purchase cigarette products who is under the age of 40 shall show proper identification before purchase"...or something like that.  I thought it so ridiculous I asked the clerk what that was all about.  She told me, "It's a new NC Law."  I quietly told her she was a GD liar and left the store.

More when the insurance office opens on Monday.

Remember that North Carolina has an elected Insurance Commissioner who does respond to public concerns. So, report back and we can start a telephone and message campaign to the Dept of Insurance.

I got carded a couple of weeks ago when buying a pack of cigars. According to the clerk, they card everybody. And believe me, I am a long way from 18 or 21 or whatever the legal age is.

You don't suffer fools lightly, do you?

Good for you.

As a matter of fact, Fred, at 72 I feel I've suffered all I need to....but thanks for asking. Grin
