Shipping A Classic/Vintage RV or Motorhome

Every type of vehicle has its share of classic and vintage offerings, though RVs aren’t usually the type of vehicles that come to mind when you think of “old school cool.” But you might be surprised to find that there are many older RVs and motor homes on the road that certainly qualify as classics. In fact, there a wide variety of vintage RVs due to the different shapes and sizes of the vehicles, as well as the different versions that have evolved over the years. Fifth wheels definitely make up a part of this vintage contingent as well since they tend to have a longer lifespan than that of a typical RV. Some of the older models of RVs have even inspired newer versions of classic makes, which allows owners to enjoy the nostalgia of a classic while still enjoying the amenities and performance of a modern RV.

Who Is Shipping Classic RVs?

You might be wondering who is shipping these vintage vehicles since they can, for the most part, still be driven. One of the advantages of an RV or motor home is that it can operate as a home on the road while you travel. It makes sense, then, that someone who wants an RV transported could just as well do it themselves. While that is true, many owners prefer to go through an RV transport company since it prevents the vehicle from logging extra miles during the trip. This is one reason that many of our customers are buyers and sellers of RVs that don’t want additional mileage put on their new purchase.

What Is the Process For Shipping Vintage RVs?

When you contact a prospective shipper or transport company to haul your RV, you’ll need to be prepared with the details of the vehicle. This includes the make, model, and year, but also other details like the dimensions and any special considerations that need to be taken into account, as well as the pickup and delivery locations.

Once your RV is picked up, it is firmly secured to a transport carrier—usually an open carrier due to the size of most RVs—where it is then transported to the destination. One thing you should look for in a company that ships classic RVs is their experience and the safety measures they take. Experience is key since not every company ships RVs and many that do, don’t do it very often. The safety measures include everything from how carefully the vehicle will be loaded and unloaded, as well as how it is secured to the carrier. If a company cannot explain these things in detail to you, it might be time to seek out other options. 

How Does Insurance Work When Shipping an RV?

Every auto shipping company has to have up to date and valid insurance coverage for any cargo they transport. This is one of the main benefits of shipping versus driving an RV for a vacation: you won’t have to drive a large RV and it will be protected against damages that occur while it’s in the care of the shipper. There is a base minimum amount of coverage for any RV shipment, but you can also choose a higher level of coverage if you so desire, which is often the case for those shipping a classic or vintage RV.

It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.
★★★★★

Due to the nature of my work, I must relocate every couple of years to where my company needs me. Because of this, I’ve tested several moving and auto transport companies over the years.

And my choice in terms of auto transport has to be A1 Auto Transport. It’s in the name, but also in the quality with which they do their jobs. I’ve never had a problem with this company.

The only time my shipment was delayed was during winter when a snowstorm closed down all the major roads. And they still found an alternative and got my car delivered before roads got unstuck.

When I moved to West Virginia, they picked up my car the very day I called them. I like to think they take special care of me considering all the business I’ve sent them. I’ll continue to support A1 Auto Transport. It’s my number one pick in auto shipping to this day.

You have my full support and recommendation!

I considered selling my car when I moved to Washington. It was old and rusty, but I grew attached to it. So, I called a couple companies to transport it to my new home, but they both fell through.

The first one couldn’t decide on a schedule. He would constantly change the pickup date till I got frustrated and canceled. The second was insufferable, very rude on the phone, even worse in person.

They started picking a part my car asking me why I still have it. If that’s their opinion of my vehicle, how can I trust they’ll take care of it? If something happened midway, why wouldn’t they just blame it on the car instead of paying up?

So, I cancelled this company as well and turned to A1 Auto Transport. From the get go, they were very different from my past options. Their website was very professional and up to date, full of useful information. I requested a quote using their online form, and I got an email response within an hour. Surprisingly fast!

If I didn’t know any better, I would’ve thought they were lacking customers, but the email spoke for itself. In just one email, everything I needed to know was there, including a contact number I could use to get more information or confirm the transport.

I called and got things rolling. I was very pleased with the driver. He followed standard procedure and represented his company well. Can’t remember his name, but props to him!

The car arrived in Washington 6 days later in excellent condition. From what I understand, the transport was delayed a bit by a storm, but since the time window was 4-6 days from the beginning, I don’t really care. You have my full support and recommendation!

I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.
★★★★★

There are a lot of options for auto transport these days, which surprisingly makes it harder to find a good company. I received more than 10 offers to ship my car, but I couldn’t decide on any of them.

After doing some research, I got even more worried reading about all the scams and accidents that can happen. But, I have work to do and couldn’t afford to drive my newly purchased Mini Cooper all the way to Virginia.

Fortunately, I made the right choice with A1 Auto Transport. They are very good at their jobs. I spent more than an hour drilling Joe with various questions, and he never once lost his patience. He saw I was interested, so he bore with me until I was satisfied. The driver was also very courteous and my car was intact on arrival. I couldn’t have asked for more.

By the way, the price we first agreed on stayed the same. There were no delays or unexpected “surprises.” I can safely say this is a legit company that will get the job done.

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10!

We give A1 Auto Transport a big 10 out of 10! We chose them to move our car from California to Vermont, since we needed professionals.

We were abroad during the transport, so the transport was a bit tricky. The driver had to pick it up from storage on short notice and get it to its destination within at most 10 days. I was happy to note it arrived sooner. We got it 3 days early, right when we got home to pick it up. It made getting around way easier. Awesome service!
