When we bought our motor home we bought the FreedomCare plan from the dealer. Its from FreedomRoads.com. We have had great luck with them including them paying a mobile repair in Az. which I understand is really rare.

We also have the Route 66 warranty. We have used it a few times and have had no problem with coverage. Very glad we have it!

I just renewed my ESP policy with the Good Sam Club. The first one paid for itself and I was happy with their service.

I bought my first motorhome in 1971, never bought extended warranty (service contract) on any motorhome or anything else. Huge profit for the seller, if you're lucky (think lottery) you'll be a winner otherwise most will lose.

Purchased extended warranty from dealer when Coach was purchased. Good Sam program. Of the last five coach's I have purchased, this is only the second time I purchased the extended warranty, Frist time I made money. I had repairs over $13,000.

We have not purchased extended warranties on any of our campers. At some point, my mechanical skills and/or capacity to work will make the cost acceptable to us.

Statistically, a large percentage of the extended warranty buyers will never break even. As with most business transactions, the person with the greatest knowledge will almost always win. The extended warranty companies have calculated failure rates and average cost to determine pricing levels. Just like Vegas, the odds are in favor of the house.

I agree %100

Those without skills are those that will benefit most from warrenty's. even then the odds are in favor of the house.

Bought "The Plan" from PRIZM....covers most everything, have already used 50% of the initial cost in the first 6 months of ownership....

For us seems to have been a good decision.

I'm not accusing anyone on this forum of lying or exaggerating regarding service received from an extended warranty company. All of you may have received exactly what you represent. It's interesting though, when a discussion of extended warranties occurs, whether in a campground, just shooting the breeze with friends, or in various forums, many people indicate they've come out even or have received much more than their premium paid. It is definitely possible that 8-10 consecutive people have recieved service equal or exceeding their premiums. The problem is that around 1/4 to 1/3 of the premium is actually allocated for warranty claims, the rest for advertising, administrative costs, warranty company profit, and selling company commission. Therefore, out of 100 claimants only 25-33 could receive an amount equal to their premium. Furthermore the so called "extended warranties" are actually service contracts, not warranties.

Actually mine is an "Insurance Policy" against breakdown, not a warranty or service contract...but it doesn't matter anyway...RV breaks, I get it fixed, they write me a check, I pretty much don't care what it is called..

What your buying is peace of mind. call it what you like.

I buy road insurance; just makes me feel good noing that if I get broke down there will be someone to help me; same reason I carry a cell phone in the motorhome when traveling.
I don't buy repair insurance; just put the money in the bank and pay for repairs; over the last 25 years I'm way ahead of the game, and I've traveled close to 500,000 miles.
