I pay $109 for Coach Net, hardly twice?

I got a two year Gold Good Sam policy when I purchased my coach for $ 1000 per year, with a $ 500 deductible. They may have quoted you their top program with a low deductible. You should look at a good, better, best lineup of coverage and pricing. I just use my warranty for an ABS sensing module and rear leveler springs that ran nearly $ 2000.

I have this with the RV Elite, Diamond Coverage. Bought my Breeze in June; weak fuel pump caused motor to run lean and broke #5 piston in Oct. Also had a very slight leak in the dash AC compressor and the speedo jumped to 40 as soon as I started moving. $100 deduct and I had to pay for a new dryer and expansion valve($90). $4500, which I later found out on here, I could have negotiated. Claim was for >$10K. I won!

I guess I was looking at the Platinum Plus package. $139.50 according to their web site. Can get a discount with Escapees, but GS is still less. I guess I should have said almost twice.

I have always bought RSA plans. Used them! GS has served us well on tire changes.
Had one EW long ago. Lost on it.
Have put $200/mo in my CSI (catastrophic self insurance) fund for quite a while. Still contributing. Never touched it. More than plenty in it.
Now it is the ACF (annual cruise fund).

$1560 a year can pay for a lot of repairs. Are you ahead of the game?

To each their own. That said, the local RV shop wants $135/hour. The local tire shop that handles RV repair like air brakes wants $95/hour. Freightliner I believe is at $115/hour now. Heaven forbid annual visits and broken things - but $1,560 isn't what it once was, but $10k is still a bundle. Whether you have a plan or not, you still have to DIY or pay those prices in scheduled maintenance. The $1,560, if you choose to spend it is a sunk cost to insure against a major or catastrophic failure. Whether you have coverage or not - it could happen.
As for Roadside Assistance. It's cheap at twice the price. I have both.

Just a financial perspective:
I've had 3 rigs in 20 years. My total expense on what would have been covered was about $5000, or about $21/month.
If it had been $20,000, it would have been about $83/month.
$130/month in coverage cost over 20 years would be over $31,000.
Just a perspective.

LOL!
Took me 3 years to find the one I have! I'm a bit picky (DW says extremely). My rigs were researched and given complete physicals. I needed to trust what I bought. Now it is only extreme PM.

rolly: For $2400 to $3200 you can buy a 4 or 5 year policy. Shop around.
