Exclamation Rv extended warranty

Hi, We just bought a 2013 Tiffin Allegro Read 38 Qra. We are looking to buy a extended warranty for it. What should one pay for it. The dealer is trying to push the Extra Ride warranty for 12,000 and now there are telling us they can do it 6,000. I don't like to fill rush. I like to read the fine print. Help please

Dealers don't just make money on the units they sell, the real $$$$ is in selling the so called extra's. If they are willing to sell it for 6k, i'd offer 4500 and go to 5500 if you think it's worth it. And don't let them presser you !!
P.S.
If i'm looking for a new car , thuck, what ever, i do it at the end of the month. They are all ways looking to meet quota's and looking to make a deal.

You will find several threads and lots of opinions on buying extended warranties on the www.tiffinrvnetwork.
I don't buy EWs but $6000 sounds quite high, depending on the details of the coverage and deductible.

That sounds pretty high, but how many years? Shop around, there is no rush. Watch that deductible, as I set mine at $1,000 on the last policy to save a few bucks, and I will lower that to maybe $200 pretty quick, as many of my repairs fall at or near the $1,000 deductible.

So they started at $12,000 then dropped to $6,000. I would think he tried to take you for $6,000.. Fool me once, shame on you, fool me twice shame on me. Check on line, phone some other places.. I would not buy anything from the first salesperson. Put the $6000 in the bank for repairs then go have fun..
When they are selling you the RV it is perfect. Once they have made the sale it needs an extra warranty.
Just my opinion.

Put the $6000 in a savings account each year and draw out what you need for repairs. More than likely, you will come out far ahead of the game. Extended warranties are cash cows for those selling them. Do a search of the forums, you will find more complaints of items not covered under extended warranties.

Tell the dealer to split the cost of the warranty or the deal is dead. Good bargaining chip.

Appears you have a 2013 Tiffin Allegro RED 38 Qra.

If so You already have great long term Warranties from Freightliner, Cummins, Allison & Tiffin. $6000 is a bunch of money for something that maybe already covered by the factory.

Hi and welcome to the forum.

My two pieces of advice for someone asking about EW's on a new rig are #1) wait until your factory warranty expires... and #2) Do not buy from your dealer but rather a broker.

Good luck.

Rick

If you maintain and service your new coach properly, you shuold not need or even consider an EW for several years. Don't waste your money. Too many RV things to spend it on! Enjoy the new ride!

There is a good argument to NOT buy an EW from the dealer and even to wait a year or 2 depending on the warranty.

But, here is something I just posted on another thread.

When we purchased our 2012 Winnebago 26P, we got " Coach-Net ". We are still in the Last year of the Original Warrenty. It gives you some pc. of mind, I will let you know next year if and when we use it.

Just my opinion.
Ask the sales person why you need it? If the quality of the product is so low that you need a service policy do you really want to buy the product?
