Also, at $5597, if you have 1 incident each year, with deductible you would need each repair bill to be $2365 to break even. And the plan cost would be about $200 per month.
Just sayin....

We bought our Class A from Camping World two months ago and we were offered a service contract on our 12 year old RV. 4 years for $4800 with a $50 copayment per incident. This includes the entire drivetrain and all of the coach accessories.
Having had to replace an AC unit and generator on our previous Class B Airstream, I know how quickly $4800 can be spent on repairs. Because our Winnebago has basement AC, I would think it could add up even faster.
We felt that buying the service contract made the purchase of a 12 year old RV much less scary.
After we had the coach for two weeks, the hydraulic pump motor for the slide and leveling jacks quit working. This was fixed and was covered.
We have the rig back at Camping World now with a list of needed repairs. We were told that everything listed will be covered, including replacing the old B&W backup monitor with a new color unit because the old one is obsolete.
For $100 per month, I thought it was worth the peace of mind.

I have Xtraride Platinum, that was provided by my dealer. We've used it several times and it was 100% hassle-free. Covers everything, bumper to bumper except maintenence items. $100 deductable per incident.

You may be SOL as there is no (good) one. Only good for the people selling them in my opinion. That being said BigTomyB seems to have a good one considering it is a 12 year young rig. If they stay true to their word and don't renege on the contract. I have never purchased a used RV, but bought a new fiver and in the 14 years I had it I spent less then $1000 dollars on all repairs combined. Now I have a new MH and have spent about $2500 on chassis upgrades and a few odds and ends. Never purchased the extended service contracts on either. It's all a gamble, but like Vegas the odds are in the dealers, (both) favors.

In 2001 I bought a 5 yr old A. Also got a 4 yr plan for $4000. I used less than $1000 of the plan and spent only about $1500 on my own in years 5-11. I lost. No surprise, but now am wise.

We were suprised that it was even offered on a 2001 consignment sale. We were happy that our purchase price including the service contract ended up at less than average retail. If we can get through 4 years without major repair expenses, we will be happy.
BTW, a benefit of the service contract is that Camping World had to do an inspection of the RV looking for pre existing problems that would be excluded. They found a power mirror that didn't work, an emergency brake release that was busted, and a small rock chip in the windshield. All of these things were repaired at the expense of the seller.
So far, I'm pleased with the arrangement, but only time will tell.

Not sure on buying for a used unit but our friends bought a Good Sam policy on an 8 year old RV and just had a $5000 repair done on the injection system. Good Sam covered it all minus their deductible.

I bought new and my Interstate Star policy has covered 8 repairs and am waiting on approval for a repair to the basement air.

I wanted the peace of mind and was willing to pay for it. It is the only extended warranty I have ever bought. Mine has paid for itself 3 times over and someone else hasn't been as "lucky?" or the company wouldn't be in business.

I like the piece of mind the Xtraride warranty gives us. We bought a 7 yr old MH and have a better warranty than a brand new unit. I like that feeling.

but you are getting the work done at Camping World. Even if I was given a service contract... I would not let CW touch my rig.

I assume that you've had a problem there. Sorry to hear that.
The CW that I deal with in Raleigh, NC has treated me right, and the staff seems very knowledgable. I'm sure every CW location will be different.

xtended warranty

If you buy a used motorhome and do not have a record of maintanance on the engine, transmission, generator and running gear, would an xtended warranty from CW be honored if you had an engine problem? Most chassis manfacturers demand proper maintanence or the warranty is void.

Good question. I would think that if you were buying an extended warranty from a third party, they could claim neglect previous to the warranty caused your engine problem. Very similar to a health insurance provider denying coverage for a pre-existing condition.
In my own case, I purchased a consignment model from CW. CW offered me a four year service contract for a little less than $4800. They then performed a pre-coverage inspection. After repairing a few minor items, they certified that my RV had no existing problems, and no exclusions on covered items.
My coverage doesn't include tires, brakes, or fluids.

To me, it seems like a good policy, but I've been wrong about these kinds of things before. I'll let you know in 46 months.
