getting US insurance for UK registered vehicle.

We have now had prices back from 6 companies / agents that will offer vehicle insurance to drive in the US (including Canada & Mexico) for British citizen and a UK registered vehicle (1995 4x4 iveco).

We had prices back from the likes of 'RVExplorer' 'Thum' 'AIG' 'CAA' 'Alessie'
but without doubt the lowest price returned came from a company called "5th Avenue Insurance" lady there known as Norma Mouet

contact details :

Norma Mouet
5th Avenue Insurance
nmouet #at# 5thaveins.com
(619) 640-3130 phone
(619) 640-3120 fax
(619) 955-1274 direct

For our vehicle 12months cover comes in at about $572 (full comp) or $310 (liability only), next closest to this price was RVExplorer, but their price was still over $1000 all others coming in at about $1400.

I've a bit more info from 5th Avenue Insurance. I'm trying to insure a UK registered motorhome, and Larry Groendyke at 5th Avenue was very helpful with the following information:

Progressive Insurance Company is who will write this policy (Progressive direct (800-776-4737)) or www.progressive.com. You need an address here in the states for Progressive to write you a policy. I only write in California and with out California address I can not write.

Larry gave me the address of an agent in Washington state where I have an address I can use:

The agent in that area is Sarah and she is with Peninsula Insurance Center Inc. 10364 Rhody Drive Chimacum, Washington 98325 phone: 360-385-4739. Her email address is: ssdpeninsctr@cablespeed.com.

I'll let you know how I get on.
