Opinions: ACC Warranties versus Wholesale Warranty

The title pretty much says it all. I am looking for opinions of these 2 firms for Extended Service Plans. We will have a fairly expensive used coach and want to protect it.
Thanks for you help.
Ted

WW is a broker. They sell various warranty policies. They are not a warranty Co. Confused ?

Try Nationwide Ins. Co. They are their own middleman or broker. The $$ listed above seems very high.

Put the money you would pay for a warranty into a savings account. Draw it out as repairs are needed. You will be FAR ahead. Do not buy extended warranties! Those companies are in business to make a profit. There is always an excuse that they can't cover what has broken.

I purchased a "all inclusive" from ACC. Includes tire replacement. 48 months/48K miles for my 2001 Goliday Rambler with 47K miles on it. $100 deductible. Cost...$3,250 with ten months no interest. Have had occasion to use them twice...refer went and on another trip, lost brakes due to line rupture. EACH case paid only the deductible. I'm happy.

This is the other discussion on ACC Warranty Group. Please read the whole thread. There was some info. that does not seem quite right. I think the latest post has the correct info in my mind.

Send a message via Skype™ to mrock
My experience with ACC was unsatisfactory--couldn't get a response sent several emails and didn't get answers there appears to be some communication problems--essentially not very responsive! Makes you wonder what your service would be like if you really needed their help. WW has been the opposite very responsive and helpful. Questions get answered quickly. I have talked with several of the WW folks each one is very knowledgeable and helpful and willing to negotiate to make a deal. The products in my opinion are similar but customer care is lacking w/ACC!

We have a 2000 Dutch Star diesel and have WW. It was $4200 for 4yrs./$500 ded. with all the goodies. Had Good Sam B-4(much more expensive), but had some major problems with them, so cancelled. Haven't needed WW yet, but I think they're all a crap shoot. I should also mention the $4200 was the cash option.
