I was told by my agent to keep track of improvements, by documentation. A great reason to share your improvements here for proof of value, and the benefit of our community.


Speaking of documentation

Kevin I know you had posted a detailed fix of your levelers. I looked for it a while back and couldn't find it. Do you remember what you called the Thread? I don't want to thread drift..........

Well you can have a 40 year old Rolex that has been worn 24 hours a day for those 40 years and one that has been in a box for 40 years.
Are they both worth the same?
As far as the insurance company's are concerned probably so.
But as far as i'm concerned I don't think so.

I'm not looking to scam anyone I just want what is just.

Our Barth is insured thru aarp. We set the value and pay the premium accordingly. I have my breakaway insured for 18,000. If I total it, they pay me 18,000. I will really hit the jackpot! I have over 30,000 in it.

Value, Let us see IF we have this right. There is Correct, Fair, Just, Replacement, Blue book, NADA, Agreed On, and the list goes on. I hate paying for something I hope never happens and coming out to find out what I have been paying was not what I thought I was paying for anyway.
Thank you Steve for bring this to our attention.

Read the fine print on an agreed value policy. Some of the big companies will sell you a policy that is agreed value but in the fine print it states they will pay the lesser of the two (their adjusters valuation or the agreed value). I raninto this when trying to get my TVR stacked with my other vehicles. I stuck with haggerty knowing my baby will be worth what is agreed for that year.

This should be interesting. What would an auto appraiser know about a motorhome. Does Houston Auto Appraisers dabble in "other" vehicles?

Steve, I see Hawkins listed on the Houston appraisers website link you posted. After they appraise your Barth they will need to add Barth to there list of motorhomes.

YEP, that is why I am surprised they have Hawkins listed and NOT BARTH. From the Houston Auto Appraisers Website their credentials look good. It is the name Auto appraisers that makes me wonder.
Keep us posted on your results Steve78
