FWIW, we bought a 6 year policy with Easy Care when we purchased our new DP in 2007. It is about to expire and they called me with an offer to renew. As a part of this process, they shared with me that they had paid all eight of my claims totaling $6200. I paid $6700 for the policy.

Best of luck to you.

Lets see, $6,200 - deductible, seem like you need another claim or two to break even.

Take care of your rig and it will take are of you. If you want to support a bunch of wolves in sheeps clothing, buy the extended warranties. It's cheaper to just fix your own problems, then to join a group to fix them for you. They will make a profit and living off of you with there scare tactics. I don't respect them and have no use for them.all they have is a License to steal.

Maybe I have been unlucky but I have had 9 repairs in the last 5 years all covered by my extended warranty. Repairs total 2 1/2 to 3 times what I paid for the policy.

Well that's why some people buy one brand and some another! Note to self, if you ever buy a Winnie, take out the insurance. Newmar or Jayco, no worry!
I can say this as I have had Jaycos and Newmars for the last 20 years. And like 3 repairs total, in 20 years. And 2 out of three under the factory warranty. Like I say take care of your rig. Some people can bend a crowbar in a sand box. These people need to buy all the protection they can get.

I had a 4 year EW on my 1st rig. $4000 cost. $1500 recovered in claims. Well, I felt good in the beginning of the EW.

I have put about $175 (average) per month into a "fixit" account since 2000 when I bought rig 2. It has gained in interest. It buys tires and such.

My expenses on rig 2 over about 11 years was less than $4000.

Now I have rig 3 and have 3.5 years left on my drive train warranty. I maintain it. The odds of a major drive train failure is very low.

Self-warranty works, but it takes discipline.

Just sayin......

This statement holds true for those with cyrstal balls.

Just think of the items you want protected by a warranty and type them into the search bar on this forum. Maybe nothing expensive ever breaks on motorhomes

Thanks so much, especially for the comments about Newmar and Jayco-I have great confidence in thedealer I bought through and they only have Newmar, Jayco and Tiffin for product
