Extended warranty

Just purchasing a 2001 CC affinity, 42' Cat C12. Wondering what, if any, major problems are somewhat common to this engine, chassis, and cabin. I can purchase a five year extended warranty, but used the one on the last new coach I purchased, very little. No major claims. It is a gamble at best.

It is... a gamble. There are those who would say that investing the amount you would otherwise pay for the extended agreement is the better way to go. I can't argue with that. Normally, I never purchase an extended contract on anything I purchase. But, I have for the past two MH's we've owned. And, I have more than 'made money' on each. It doesn't take many many repairs to equal or exceed the cost of the contract. And, there are a lot of things that can go wrong with a house on wheels! My advice is to purchase the extended contract. If nothing else, it will provide a bit of peace of mind. / Larry

I like to purchase at least a 1 year extended, just in case the engine or something else major goes out, it would probably happen in that first year.
After that its a gamble

I have an extended warranty (had one on my last M/H as well). Frankly, I hope it is the worst investment I make (I feel the same way about life insurance). The question you have to ask is do you feel lucky or are you fiscally capable of picking up the tab is you aren't lucky. Being lousy at forcasting, I took the warranty and have used it because stuff happens.

I broke even on my 4 yr warranty at purchase when we had to replace the injection pump. The rig was then 7 years old.

We have a one year newer Affinity than you. We bought it two years ago this month. We paid half (seller paid the other half) for a 3 year policy. For us that was a very good decision. The Affinity is a very expensive complex motor home. They are wonderful motor homes, but complex.
