Faye, I am not a fan of extended warranties, but at times they can be beneficial, especially at giving you some piece of mind when you make a large purchase. Keep in mind that regular maintenance and other items in small print are not covered by it. Also a repair facility must be careful to use the correct verb-age to assist the customer in getting issues cover. Example: a brace is not covered but a bracket is. Most of the time you will probably break even or may come out ahead on a quality built coach, to save the money you will spend on a warranty and pay for repairs when needed.

Lazy Days sells them on the front side, but perhaps more important is that the guys in the service area like them too. They say they don't get much hassle on claims and they pay up promptly (which makes the service manager happy).

Hey Faye, (sorry I just had to do that) Do I understand that there is 2 years still paid for or that it is eligible for 2 more years that they will be glad to take your money for? Is it a coach or a trailer? How old is it. There is a lot that can go wrong with a motorhome that is age related and not covered by warranties. When I bought my coach last October it had only 13,000 miles on it but I chose to purchase an extended policy (Good Sam) so that I could put some of my own miles on the rig and have a year to implement my own maintenance regime. I probably won't renew but it was comforting for the first year to know it was covered while I became comfortable with its condition.

the moothome is a 2004 and original owner purchased the extended warranty and it still has 2 years left on it that is transferrable to us, we are not having to pay for this. it is in our purchase agreement .

Bravo! What a bonus. But remember there are things which will just need replacing that will not be covered under the policy. Anything rubber comes to mind, especially tires. I just replaced the front tires on my 04 with only 25,000 miles because they were out of date. Although there is some debate about this, I didn't feel like taking a chance on blowing a front tire. Every tire has the date imprinted on the sidewall. It will look something like 1303 meaning it was made in the 13th week of 2003. Also check belts and hoses. If it all looks good, load it up and hit the road knowing that for the next two years your major repairs are insured.

I got a 7 yr from National when we bought at Lazy Days and used it 3 times. More than paid for itself and there was not a single problem with National. Prompt responses. Marv
