Think about it, you're getting the people who are selling it to you to verify that everything is in working order?

If you are not mechanical or do not understand the ins & outs of trailers yet, I would suggest that it is worth a couple hundred bucks to bring an expert with you for a pre-purchase inspection. Or if they want you to sign first, at least make your deposit conditional on that inspection.

Ok, here it goes.
I picked up our new 2014 Trilogy 3650 RL which we custom ordered before Christmas the other day.
The Lady in the business office offered a 5 year extended service plan starting at $2.900 cdn. with $200 deductible. Included is mechanical and electrical but NO structural coverage, so do the math. When the TV or the washing machine breaks I get it fixed or replaced but when the roof or the floor or sidewall or ? goes I'm screwed, so what's the point? When I refused she asked me what I was willing to pay, I said not even half of what you're asking, so that tells me that the dealers get a pretty good portion of that extended warranty premium.
Don't get me wrong I was still treated like "Royalty" and would buy again from that dealership.
You can't blame them for trying, but don't waste your money.

Service Warranties usually do not cover structural damage or rot. That is what insurance is for. Insurance doesn't cover the appliances or systems though.

Check out Phoenix America. We deal with them and they usually are good, and affordable.

As far as the comment on not trusting the selling dealer, I take offense to it. I am honest, and let customers know what is wrong with the trailer, and usually fix it all, but let them know what we don't. So be careful with those type of generalized attacks.

I agree with rot, rust and neglect not being covered but crack in fiberglass due to poor workmanship should be (long story - Carriage)

The key word is poor workmanship. They won't cover "pre existing" conditions. Run into that before.

I understand why they won't, but I can see why it should be too.

You are absolutely right, but that's what warranty is for.
