I get requests all the time about insurance for School Bus Conversions (aka Skoolies). When we launched our program for tiny home insurance, there was a narrow scope as to what qualified as a “tiny home.” We were the first to offer coverage for travel protection and theft protection but this was a homeowners policy.
I recently returned from the 2017 Tiny House & Living Simply Jamboree in Arlington, TX and all the skoolie owners DEMANDED insurance options. However, skoolies are a whole different ballgame. They need auto physical damage (comprehensive and collision) because they have engines. They need to be written as auto policies.
Perspective: If you invest in an asset, you want to protect it. Bus conversions are going to be comparable to auto insurance. Its a sliding scale based on the price of the bus + Upgrades + packages.
There is little competition, because we are the first and only solution for converted school buses. We just want to provide a reasonable insurance solution for skoolies.
Unfortunately at this time, we are unable to offer any further school bus conversion quotes. This program has been canceled due to difficulties meeting the needs of the very unique insureds that own skoolies. For school bus conversion insurance, please call National General (877) 468-3466 and reference Martin Burlingame.
