Best you understand whats not covered.

That is interesting! WW must have gotten more established now, I offered them $10K for the supposedly policy that cost $10.8K, they wouldn't accept it. I asked them to send me the policy details; after reading all the details, I gathered it is entirely possible for them to turn down every claim based on some clause in the policy. So, it costs $10.8K for maximum pay off of $60K with all those clauses of what is NOT covered - one would be hard pressed to take it. On the other hand if money is no object and one wants some piece of mind then that is different.
Thank you all for the suggestions!

put the money in the bank! I just have a broken valve on a 2009 isx650, complete overhaul cost $22,800. Cummins paid half without extended warranty of any kind. What are the chances your engine, trany or diff will need overhaul. The extended warranties don't cover everything. you will likely have a tough time collecting, they know the sidestep dance!

After a closer examination of the policy I came to the same conclusion. I wouldn't buy it period! Thanks for chiming.
On a different note, about two months ago I had an opportunity to purchase an 08 Donatello with less than 13k mi for around 240 - as the saying goes "...who hesitates is lost...". ENJOY YOUR Donatello!

We are in the final stages of purchasing a 2009 CC Magna 630 and of course they asked if we were interested in a service policy. I asked them for the info and she came back and said she couldn't find it right now! Don't even know what brand it is let alone what coverage is.
Frankly I don't think we'll buy it even if we do get the rig. It's been many years since I bought one and never needed it.
The Magna looks a lot like the OP's Affinity.

Mr_D: What an awesome coach - Congratulations!! I hope it works out for you- Many, many Happy Miles. BTW, what is the floor plan model - I didn't see it anywhere?
The Extended Service Contract I was looking at was from Wholesale Warranty - Looking at the cost ($10.8K) for four years and reading all the "Not Covered" clauses + a maximum of $60K coverage is simply, in my view, not worth it.

Just an update on mine - I'm still not in possession of the Affinity as we are working on some issues, I'll report more later.

Mr D, congratulations! Looks like a very nice coach, and the Vivaldi floor plan gives you a lot of room in the living area.

In my opinion most people's opinions pro or con on extended vehicle warranty insurance have to do with their own personal choice and secondly the warranty company their chose.

When we bought our Country Coach in Nov 2009 the coach was seven years old so the usual motor and transmission warranty were expired. When we bought the coach the previous owner had lots of money and next to no knowledge of the mechanical workings of a motorhome. His repair records were not complete. So I felt that it was too risky to buy this without some kind of warranty. I asked the dealer which was the best extended warranty not the cheapest. He said that Xtra Ride was the best and they paid for almost everything. He was a trustworthy guy and I took his advice. The seller paid for half. It cost about $8,000 for 3 years or 30,000 miles on their Platinum service. Everything except tires were covered.

Xtra Ride covered almost everything we asked them to. This includes many things that could have been construed as upgrades and not broken. We did have a $200 deductible. The kicker was three weeks before the warranty expired I was having a local shop do proactive transmission service on our Allison. Somehow someway our transmission ended up not working. Extra Ride paid to replace the broken transmission. I cannot say enough good things about this company Xtra Ride.

So that is my experience and you can take from it what you like.

On this forum I have read of many cases where insurance companies tried to escape claims. My advise is to pick the company you use for warranty carefully.

My other comment would be that we have had difficulty getting service and repair work done correctly. In many cases in the last few years we had something fixed and continued on with our travels only to have the fix or maintenance turn out to be not good. Last year alone we had a CAT dealer do our yearly service. With no repair the charge was about $800. We left and they had overfilled our motor by a number of quarts of oil. We did not discover this till 400 miles away. A huge mess. The back of our coach covered in oil plus our tow car. Then we had a leak in our inside fresh water line repaired. It broke again a week later. Another giant mess. And we had to pay lots to get another fix. And then we had our generator serviced. The brilliant service tech who did that work did not tighten the bolts on the generator side panel. So we spent 1 1/2 days in a CAT dealer 300 miles away getting that fixed. And all this was last year. For another long story I could get into the continuing saga of slide leaks and the many times we have had this supposed fix done and redone.

So I have now droned on enough and will stop. My main point. Extended warranty on this coach purchase turned out very well for us because we were dealing with a great provider.

Alright. Good info on the insurance plan. I have been thinking about cancelling my Good Sam one as I always have had issues dealing with them. I am still able to do my own maintenance on our RV. Thank God as I do not trust these guys out there. I have appreciated all the comments on my issues with the CC we just bought. The only one left for me to resolve is the type PTO I have. Still waiting their reply from the pictures I sent.

Just an Update

I came down to look at the 2008 Affinity yesterday. While it does have a few problems, but nothing that couldn't be fixed - For example, five fogged up windows, a bad cut in one of the tires, the hide-away J sofa with air mattress missing a pump, the fabric on the major awnings need replacement. But overall, it is pretty decent shape. What I also did, contrary to my belief in EW, I bought a four year Extended Service Contract for 4 years which includes tire and rim coverage for 5 years, for $8K. I figured if I keep for a year and didn't think that I needed it, I will cancel it.
Tomorrow, I'm driving it to Suncoast Designers in FL to repair the windows.
Also, I sold my Essex, and didn't have to trade it in.

Thank you all for sharing your thoughts and experiences - I welcome them if you have more.

Regards to all!

We thought we had that covered with the Magna we bought, didn't buy the service policy. Then, 2,600 miles after purchase, the engine blew to the tune of $29,000 and, even though Cummins is picking up about $10,000 of the bill we're still out the $19,000.
Dealer said they offered the policies but didn't have the info and would send it to us. The engine blew on a Sat evening and the policy info arrived at home the following Monday!
But, I'm also guessing any insurance co would try and say it was a pre-existing condition since it happened so soon. Guess they can tell when a valve is going to break!
