Everybody's premium is at least 1/3 less than Avemco.......

Avemco is the carrier of very last resort in the RV community.

For the first ten years with my 1999 RV-6 best rate was with AIG, but then Global underquoted them and I've been with Global ever since.

Avemco is like the car insurance carrier that advertises on late-night TV for $19.99 per week - you use them because you have no other choice and you know they will carry you.

The quote I got from Global last fall was only twice that of the quote from AIG. But aviation insurance appears to be a wonky landscape these days. We'll see how it shakes out next fall.

Having gone through the process of a claim, (one of the lucky victims of the MT prop gov issue). I am a believer that nothing can be more expensive than cheap insurance. AIG covered me properly and with respect and genuine effort to make me whole to the best extent possible. Other victims with different companies weren't so fortunate. If the price chasm isn't too wide, my first choice is AIG.
I called AVEMCO once and the quote was ridiculous, like 150 % more. When I told the agent of my other quote her answer was "We hear that all the time and when we pass it up to management they tell us they aren't really interested in experimental business. At least their agents are honest.
