Easy Care warranty

Most extended warranty are simply dealer profit and I steer away from them on everything I buy UNLESS I know the item problem rate is high.

Now, I have a 2007 GulfStream Vista Cruiser MB Diesel and would probably pass out if I have a problem with the engine or trans and YES I know a friend who got a 4k repair.

EasyCare covers anything that runs. Ex. 2 months after my purchase the propane generator kept dying under a minor load.

Costs me 100 buck and EasyCare 700.

I have concerns about being rejected but if a dealer will accept their form of payment then you only pay the deductible. Now if my MB dealer charges a higher rate than EasyCare pays, I have to pay the difference.

I probably would not have purchased this on other RVs but the diesel concerns me.

I know their are a lot of horror stories about getting the warranty people to pay but so far they seem fair to me. Just remember, you get nothing if you do not take care of the RV. You are responsible for keeping up, keep receipts, your RV but then why in the heck would you buy a 80k vehicle and not take care of it.

Others should post their stories.

Our six year policy with Easy Care just expired. We have been extremely happy with their support. The never denied a single claim. Always paid the shop directly and never injected any unreasonable delays in authorization.

I used shops in California, Arizona and New Mexico and all went smooth as can be.

As EWs go, I think they are a good one.

Warranty

Isn't it amazing that there is a good warranty company? Based on past experience I expected to be denied on every fix.

Have you found a link between the two?

A while back I was using google to try and find the owner and that's all i could come up with. I was hoping someone who has used them before would know, maybe it was on their paperwork.

Their website outlines their ownership history back to 1984.

I am the owner of the RV not the company. This is my first RV and a diesel. I was concerned about being able to cover repairs since some owners have provided me with some of their repairs cost. I would blast this company if it I had paid for a warranty that turned out to be a joke.
All I know is that it works. Include your email id here or however it works here and I will respond to your questions offline.

RV Coverage | Extended RV Warranty

I purchased the total care but it is NOT cheap but allows me to sleep better not having to worry about major repairs. Buying the RV was expensive enough.
Oh by the way. I rent spaces, on my property, for boats and RVs. Some owners have no problems, average, and horror stories. This is where my motivation came from. If you are a mechanic or handyman then ignore this.
