Does anyone know roughly how much it would cost an 18 year old buying an 82 bluebird, for insurance? It would only be driven in the summer for 3 monthes, list any sites I could go to for a quote or offer any price range, thanks!

I think it depends on how it's registered, I'm trying to figure out the same thing for when I buy a Crown.

try http://www.rvinsurance.com

Crown, Blue Bird, Thomas, Gillig, Corbeil, Superior, Amtran...all excellent products of an excellent industry.

I insure mine through Progressive. It would probably cost a lot less if you could get it registered/insured as a motor home.

When I got my 85 Thomas, we had a HARD time finding insurance. No one would insure it. However, we found State Farm and they were willing to help us. They would only insure it if it was insured commercially, though. It worked, and it only costs me $236 every 6 months. However, the insurance is "on hold" for the winter and early spring, so we don't have to pay for those months since it's not driven.

I have $500,000 with no deductable. My local Farm Bureau Insurance Agent found a company that would insure my bus. I pay $751/year. I plan to use the bus year round for Scouts and Church.

Thank you everyone. It most likely would be alot more for me if I am only 18 years old correct? If so do you know how much?

It all depends upon how you will be using the bus. If you are going to be using the bus for your purposes--as an RV for instance--it shouldn't be too much of a problem.

If you are going to be using it as a commercial venture, good luck.

My insurance company does not allow anyone under 25-years of age, The state of WA requires $5 million liability so the premium is about $5K per bus per year. If you need comp and collision it is going to cost you more as well.

Good luck on finding insurance.

When I'm talking about a Crown Coach from Chino/LA, I say Crown. When I'm talking about a fake crown from richmond, I say carpenter.

I see they never said that Carpenter and Crown By Carpenter were good buses. The CBC buses were not that slow, but it seems to me that no matter if it was a ford, GMC, or IHC, they were all under powered.
