Travel Insurance with RV coverage in USA? (aussie driver)

im looking for a travel insurer who will cover 6 australian guys who are driving across america in a RV (motorhome) over a 21 day period.

ive looked at alot of travel insurers and read their PDS and i have yet to find one who covers RV hire.

obviously we are looking for all the usual coverage that comes with travel insurance but one that will cover the RV as well.

alot of the insurers cover car hire but not RV or scooters and the like.

if someone could point me in the right direction that would be awesome!

cheers

G'day Irish,

Welcome to the Holiday Travel forum.

I've no personal experience with them, but this US insurance company was recommended by friends;

http://www.progressive.com/rv/

Also, have you contacted the vehicle hire company to see what insurance they can offer you? Unlike Australia, the rates in the US are really competitive.

Good luck with your search and have a great time.

Oh and go the Swans!

My apologies, Irish, I was advised that the company included insurance for RV rentals.

I shall ask around and see if I can locate something for you.
