Seems like a personal choice. You need to ask yourself questions like: How long will you own it? How handy are you? And balance that with How much does it cost? Entegra gives you a 2 year warranty which is about how long it takes to sort out a new coach. I tend to shy away from extended warranties because when you do need them, they start dictating what is covered, who works on it and when. If I'm broke down I want to be in control of when and how I get back on the road. As always, just my opinion!

I wash and wax my coach myself with my 2 sons. All done by hand.
It's a lot of fun as a small quantity of beer is involved!

X2 The key is the small quantity of beer. Tried it with a large quantity of beer and never did get it finished! I also woke up with a headache!

I agree with you regarding extended warranties in general. But I think Stan is talking about some special product the dealer puts on the paint as a protector and something like scotch guard on the carpets inside. If he is and it was me, I would tell the dealer definitely NO! Sounds like a scam to me.

Hi Tom and Regina,

- Thx for your insight regarding the paint protection and scotch guard-type protection plans! I usually get these protection plans for our autos and really have not used them much. I was wondering on the value of investing in these for the potential coach.

- I am not very handy mechanically nor am I very inclined to do lots of manual activities, which is one of the reasons why we are considering investing in the Anthem.

Thx Again,

Stan

I asked the some guys who install it on the Anthem and they pointed out, this is not real leather; you're not getting your money's worth.

If you have a pet(s) or kid(s) that are a little rough and they are offering some type of a repair for tears or rips...might be worth consideration. If you really want the scotch guard go to local walmart and spray it on your seats...you'll save about $500. At least that's my opinion.

We have the pets...but I suspect the fine print will disallow any damage from either pets or kids. Has on every furniture/auto leather warranty I've ever read. If you find one that covers damage from pets, I'd sure would like to read it through.

We have all leather furniture at home and in cars. We bought a contract once...when we tried to use it the company had gone out of business. For what it's worth, the real leather benefits from a once or twice annual leather treatment/cleaner. The not so real leather benefits most from a damp rag when needed....and the furniture repair places come to you and are pretty reasonable....much more reasonable that the contract we couldn't use.
