Wholesalewarranty.com is a broker re-selling extended service contracts, as are the vast majority of sellers. (it is not a warranty). They appear to have a good reputation and competitive pricing.
There are 2 types of contracts, exclusionary, and inclusive. The exclusionary is considered the better of the two because it lists what is NOT covered, everything else is covered. The inclusive lists what IS covered, everything else is not covered (can you remember every component of your RV?)
I'm quite satisfied with our extended service contract, and plan to renew before the expiration date. It's like buying insurance on your car, you never plan to recoup the premiums, but if you do you're happy.

First of all, why would you want to purchase an extended warranty on a NEW motorhome? I would wait until the manufacturer's warranty is up. Then I would shop around to find coverage. As far as Wholesale Warranties goes, they've been great with us. Ours is the XtraRide policy that we just used last week to replace a heat pump, less the $100 ded. of course. No muss, no fuss. In fact the place that did the work said they've NEVER had a problem with XtraRide.

Some new coach warranties for some systems run five years, like the engine.

I don't use extended warranties.

Mine is through Good Sam, I forget the name of the actual company that holds the contract. I am very satisfied with their performance.

Would that be coach-net?

I have a contract though them and am satisified but you do need to look at what is NOT covered. Had a DPF filter go bad this summer. None of the 4K repair bill was covered. I thought that was why I bought the policy but emission components are not covered in my plan. I bought the highest protection plan. They covered the replacement of my rear view monitor. No issues with that.

Coach Net is a separate policy to cover towing and worth it. They covered the full cost of towing our rv to the service center. They handled the contact with the towing company and the service facility. Outstanding service.

I looked up many of the warranties on my new coach before I bought an extended warranty. Fleetwood covered everything for 1 yr. The most expensive parts are covered for 5 yrs., the chassis.
My dealer wanted $19k then 14k then $9k for 5 years, then 6 yrs. After 9 months the only thing gone out was the rear camera. Sent it back to mfgr for $10 USPS. If I had a ext. warr. it would have cost me two trips to service, maybe a deductible, 2 days, AND fuel.
I'm saving up a slush fund of $10k. IF anything goes out I got it covered. IF nothing goes out I'm $10k ahead. Thankfully can fix most things. When something goes out I fix the individual component not the entire unit.

This subject has already been discussed. I have Cornerstone and they have been great. If you're not mechanically and electrically educated it's best to buy one. It's a very small price to pay compared to the risk and the cost of the rig.

Just purchased a used Newmar Scottsdale 2004, when we sat down to take of paying for it, they tried to sell us an extended warranty. Can you believe 5500.00 per year for a $1000 deductible, I told them I would take my chances.

I think that should have been 5500 for the full term, not per year.

Actually I made a mistake it wasn't for $1000 deductible it was for $50 deductibe, however it was for 1 year. I asked her how much less for $500 deductible and she said it would only come done about $500 a year.
