Hard to save enough to pay 20k for a blown engine. 4 k policy would be a good buy. It's insurance. You bet there will be a problem they are betting that there won't be enough of us with problems to put them out of business. That's why they are all insured.

wholesale came with my rig

I'm in the shop right now. the day we bought the rig we transferred the wholesale warrantee and it went very smoothly. And yes from what I see it was very negotiable. They added high tech electronics w no upcharge. Good for me cause my tracvision stopped working on our maiden voyage.

For what it's worth I dropped GS with a $500 deduct and.purchased from WW with a $200 deductible and it has been awesome coverage in my case! Have had policy a year and have had 3 claims and zero hastle. Paid my deduct and rolled on down the road with 2 leveler legs replaced ($775 each time) and a back up camera and monitor replace ($950). Awesome! The repairs are on my 2005 Gasser and couldn't be happier!

Wholesale Warranties

My first policy was from a SCAM artist that got into me for almost $3000 before I realized what was going on. He's no longer in business as far as I know. I then bought a policy from from Wholesale and I've had two claims in the past 7 months and they have been a delight to work with and have paid everything I have submitted that was covered in my policy.
Most recently I had a serpentine belt go out on the road caused by a faulty alternator and a LOVE's Travel Center employee smelled the rubber and alerted me. They had a mechanics shop on location and I was on my way in less than 4 hours.
I would recommend them based on my personal experience.

I purchased a 4 year contract thru Wholesale Warranties it is the ProTrek Diamond.
I not only have peace of mind I have also had a claim which was handled with no issues. The RV dealer was familiar with this warranty and even stated how easy they were to work with.
I recommend!!!

Just purchased a 3 year/30,000 mile protection plan through WW for our 2003 Itasca motorhome. Premium Plan with $200 deductible for a little over $4,000.

This is their new (as I understand) VIKING Protection Plan.

They sent an inspector out who did a comprehensive inspection that we passed with only one issue, chassis radio (for which I have a replacement and told the inspector about). The radio will be excluded until I have it installed and send them the paperwork showing it has been installed.

I read a lot on here about whether these plans are worth the cost. I will speak from my personal experience that this is my 3rd one and for both the previous two I received more in compensation from repairs than I paid out. I have only had one bad experience, and that was with the Allegiance (CSI Care) plan that expired the 1st of this month. While they covered the majority of repairs I needed over the last 3 yrs, this one was ridiculous.

My transmission (Allison) was not downshifting on its own and the problem was diagnosed as a faulty Transmission Control Unit (TCU). Repair/replacement cost was significant at about $1,800 with labor. They denied the claim stating "The policy specifically excludes items required by the 1990 Clean Air Act" and this is a component under that act. My initial response was -- huh? I researched it and could not find anything in the act that discussed transmission control units, so I called them back and this was their response: "Well, when you are running 3000 rpm in 1st gear and the transmission shifts to 2nd the engine is then running more efficiently and therefore producing fewer pollutants, thus it is a clean air issue." I'm not BS'ing you. So naturally I asked for a supervisor and got the same response verbatim.

I'm glad that that policy was expiring in a few days. Of course, I checked the WW protection plan as a result and it specifically calls out coverage of the TCU.

Anyway, it appears to me that the WW VIKING Protection Plan is a very comprehensive plan that also provides breakdown coverage for rental car and per diem as well as tire repair/replacement coverage. I believe it is worth the "peace of mind" to me as others have said, "It is an insurance policy".

Other's opinions can, and will, differ.

I am happy thus far with WW protek diamond plan. I have had three claims. All have been paid. They did recently deny a dash a/c recharge because no leak could be found. Dye was put in so if it loses charge again they will find the leak and WW should repair whatever it is at that time.
Other than that they have paid with little hassle.
The only issue I have run into is they only pay $99/hr for labor and the shop I use charges $120/hr I think so I have to pay the difference.

I have the same plan and have had several extensive repairs at lazy days with no issues. No hourly issues either.

We bought a new gasser. Talked with WW. Thought and thought about it. For us with the warranties on the new unit we opted not to get the warranty on the coach BUT did get the tire/wheels warranty. It was the only part of my new unit not covered. It is now. Fairly inexpensive for a 5 year/70,000 mile warranty.

Wholesale Warranties

I have my policy through Wholesale Warranties. I submitted a claim when my radiator started leaking. They approved the claim and had my radiator replaced in a timely manner without any issues. I have been very pleased with Wholesale Warranties and recommend them.

I'm new to this Forum and see this Thread is rather old but need to find current information on Extended Warranties and pricing.
Our current expires in early October with Interstate (transferred to us from original owners upon purchase in May)
Have a few quotes I'm chewing on and will appreciate recent updates on policies
We have a 2004 Monaco Windsor 36PST

Thank you
