Extended Warranty advice

I'm considering an extended warranty for my 2007 Itasca Sunrise. I've looked at the many threads here concering them but still want to consider it. My dealer is pushing XtraRide which seems good but costly. Another I have found (thru Warranty Experts) that looks as good is Go-RV Warranty. Does anyone have any experience with them?
Thanks for any help.

We have have very good service and experience with RVProtection.net. Take a look at their website. Price was the best I could find. As a claims adjuster I read the policy cover to cover before purchasing and as warranties go it was good coverage. My claims were paid as expected but be aware that warranties are just like any contract they do not cover everything.

I have had WarrantyExperts for four years and they have come through for me when I needed them. Keep in mind that you are not getting a warranty, but rather an insurance policy. Either way, I've been happy with them.

Warranty Experts is a agent, not an insurer. Once they sell you the policy, they are out of the loop.

I'm guessing you are not speaking from personal experience. If so, it is not the same as mine. I've had occasion to use my policy three times. On each occasion, I've gone directly through them. They may "farm" it out when they receive notice from me, but they are the ones I call, or have my dealer call.

But I DO have personal experience. I purchased my current extended warranty through Warranty Experts in 2006 and have submitted several claims, all to the claims phone number shown on my policy. The policy is from RV Shield and the claims go to a claims administration company called Warrentech, via the phone number shown in my policies claims instructions.

If you do a Google you will quickly find that Warranty Experts lost his BBB approval and was being sued by the State of Texas. A search on rv.net will give you a lot of reading and more complaints than anything else. When people post about this outfit and they are displeased he often threatens them with law suits!

I stopped recommending Warranty Experts back in early 2008, when a lot of these problems came to light. A friend lost the premium to paid the them - they never turned it over to the insurer and so a policy was never issued. Lawsuit still in progress, last I heard.

Mine went through without a problem and the insurer and administrator company are fine. It's Warranty Experts I would not deal with again.

Wow - I'm glad I asked. I had done a quick Google search and didn't find much. Now digging deeper I found Warranty Experts has had a number of problems - not something I want to deal with. Some good websites I used: RV.net; Better Business Bureau (bbb.org/us);TheSqueakyWheel.com; RipOffReport.com. Guess I'll keep looking.

We have an extended warranty for 7 years and although not used yet, we sleep better knowing it's there even if it doesn't cover everything

We have the Route 66 warranty. To date we have used it twice, and are very glad we have the extended coverage. We bought it from the Winnebago dealer when we purchased our Adventurer.

We went with PRIZM..."The Plan" BBB rated A+

Covers EVERYTHING! except of course wear items..

Made our first claim...They paid flawlessly, but they did "negotiate" agressively with the repair facility...and at first wanted us to accept "non-cummins" parts, (cheaper), but after I spoke with them on the phone all was good....

remember that it is not really an EXTENDED WARRANTY...it is an insurance policy and it does not cover everything. You need to read the policy in advance and see what is covered and what is not covered. There can be some very "slick" lawyer wording buried in there.

Some list items that are included and some list items that are excluded.

I have had the extended warranties in the past, some are not so bad, others immediate answer is NO and there will not move from this position. Personally, I would put the money aside in the bank and use it as needed.

Remember that with any insurance policy that you are betting into stacked odds...it favors the house. They are betting that you will not use anything close to the amount you have paid. You on the other hand are betting that you will hit the jackpot and be the winner. If they were not going to make money, they would not be selling the "warranties".

Also, do a check on the companies finances. These places come and go like most people change underwear.

My nickles worth. Was 2 cents, but you know inflation...
