Remember that your new tt already has a factory warranty so for that period of time your tt is double covered or rather coveted by the manufacturer think about passing on the deal from the dealer because he just wants to make money for something the manufacturer is covering check out other warranties after the sale.

Jayco offers a two year warranty from the factory at no additional charge. Why pay for two years of extended warranty that won't kick in because the factory warranty is still in effect?

I've waffled back and forth through the years on extended warranties. At this point I'm simply not up to the hassles of what some warranties require you to go through in order to make a claim. There are so many unreputable warranties out there that it'd be hard to know if the warranty offered is worth a cent. I guess I'd start by asking who the warranty is offered through and then do my research.

But with that said, I also agree with other posts.....you're looking at double coverage if you're not careful. Don't think I'd do it to be honest. Use the money for deductables and/or future repairs.

Make sure it's an ADDITIONAL 3 years past the original 2 years. I've heard of cases that that wasn't true. I don't know what type of TT you're buying but $2000 can make a substantial number of repairs on a TT. Now, if it were a MH...that's a big difference. Just my thoughts.

In my experience is Jayco enjoys the gold standard for warranty repair. They earned this mark because of their commitment to customer service. Their dealers.. that's another story, but Jayco corporate stands by their warranty and will go above and beyond to make sure a customer is totally satisfied. I think given my experience with Jayco, I would forgo the extended warranty and rely on their own warranty for 2 years. I owned one of their Designer series 5er. A quality built trailer and Jayco as is their usual fashion wanted to see every issue I brought up to them resolved. They even went so far as to replace a defective Todd converter that was defective after the warraty ran out. I do not work for them, just a pleased owner.

I must say that Jaycos warranty is no hassle. On our first long trip with our 2008 jayco we had a problem with the tread of the tires hitting the wheel wells. called the dealer from NC and thay made arengments to get it fixed without delaying our trip. Jecyo sent two new larger axles and installed them.

Just FYI ,. all my Jayco problems happened just after the warranty was up ... Then found out I was completely on my own ... Jayco wouldn’t even talk to me anymore ... and just sent me to the dealer ... one, that after I bought my trailer from , moved 80 miles away ...

Lots of problems can be avoided by storing the trailer INSIDE ... Despite my repeated pre-sale questions to the dealer about how well it would do Outside (he lied) ... They do last much better protected ... and don’t do well exposed to the elements ... That and post-warranty repairs are ridiculously expensive.. considering the work done ....

I've owned 3 Jaycos - a Cardinal pop-up and 2 Designer 5th wheels. Jayco has always been the gold standard in dealing with any issues, even going to the extent to find and authorize an alternate non-Jayco local repair shop to replace a Norcold cooling unit within 3 days (including shipping time to get a replacement cooling unit) when our selling dealer couldn't get us in for 6 weeks. The RVs themselves have been well-built and durable for their respective price points. Count me as a very satisfied Jayco customer - I only wish they had offered something comparable when we bought our current 5th wheel.

Extended warranties are a gamble, so that's up to you. If I wanted one, I'd shop around, betting that knowing the dealer's price tells me the very most anyone is going to charge me. I would think of paying for one as getting my first repair bill before I even left the dealership!

As for me, I only buy them for vacuum cleaners, because all of ours have sucked for 30 years. I guess I've saved enough NOT buying them that I can pay for whatever repair is necessary after my Jayco's warranty expires.
