Did you ask the dealer if there is existing factory warranty left? I'm not sure if they are transferrable.

ETA--you might call Winnebago and ask them just to verify whether there is any factory warranty for 2nd owner.

OK. Since factory warranties are typically one year (from the RV manufacturer), the only warranties still in effect would be on the chassis and certain appliances/systems--if they are transferable.

Most of the warranties are only to the original purchaser. The coach warranty is one year and some appliances are 2 or 3 years. You will need to check and se if any are transferable.

As for an extended warranty, it is really an insurance policy. These are big money makers for the selling dealer, so offer him 1/2 of what he ask fro the warranty. he will still make some money.

Be sure and read the warranty in detail and see what is excluded.

Sorry--we seem to be "talking over" each other; I hope I'm not causing more confusion. I know that things like Dometic refrigerators, Power Gear levelers, etc. have 2 year warranties, but I don't know whether they are transferable.

Since the Meridian is a DP, I think Cummins warrants their engines for 5 years or 75K miles, whichever comes first. Make sure you receive a copy of the original owner's maintenance records to verify maintenance compliance if something should happen during your ownership. The roof skin is 10 years.

You should be able to transfer the Chassis and Engine warranties. Check with the dealer and you will maybe get the appliances covered for the rest of there warranty periods. The extended warranties are a gamble. If you have a catastrophic failure of some sort you may come out ahead, but normally the things that break, by the time you pay the deductible and argue to get your money, you might just as pay for the repair.

I would be really curious about why the original owner only kept it one year. I would also insist on talking to the original owner before buying it! JMHO!



MERRY CHRISTMAS & HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Well put, I agree. Maybe it was a executive's MH, Don't they get a new one every year like car dealers?

I have a 2012 Winnebago Journey 40U. Basically the same as the Itasca. I am going to sell if I find the right buyer so I can get a second home in Florida. That is a good reason to sell a RV sooner than originally expected. There are always reasons! My warranties are transferable! The extended warranty that I purchased should be transferable as well. It cost me extra and would be a plus for the new owner. The chassis is a three year 36,000 mile and the Allison is longer. I forget all the different's but if you have the chassis # you should be able the contact Winnebago and get all the info that you need. Good luck and enjoy the Itasca, if it is as good as my journey you will soon be a Proud owner. The extended warranties are a big money maker for the dealers. You should be able to negotiate the total price of the package by a good margin. I would not accept the first offer of the cost for the policy even if it means a lower deductible. Watch the policies as they may allow a deductible for each item rather than one for each incident.
