Extended warranties

Does anyone have opinions on getting an extended warranty company. What are the companies available out there, other Good Sam. My current policy ends 8/15 and the company I am with does not renew without a dealer to go through, the dealer I bought off of no longer sales their policies .

Personally, I have the GS extended warranty and have been treated very well. On my '05 Discovery had the Huei pump go out along with injectors to the tune of $6300. I ended up paying $1300 which I thought was fair. All the injectors were not bad but they approved the whole works.
My monthly payment is around $150.
Good luck with whomever you choose.

Call or e-contact Wholesalewarranties.com. They are good people and do not pressure you but rather just give you choices as agents. The prices are very competitive. When a problem does arise, hope never, they help you as agents. I speak from experience. Sadly, current policies now have rather high deductibles and consequential coverage appears to be no longer offered. Still, is a major repair happens it would be nice to have.

Thanks for the advice. I contacted GS but their rates for their gold plan was $8200 per year.

I second both of them. There are some companies selling directly to the public, but most contracts are sold by brokers. Good Sam and wholesalewarranties.com are brokers. Just run an internet search for "RV extended service contract" But that is not the end of your searching. Run a complaint search for those companies/brokers that interest you, but sift out the wheat from the chaff-so to speak.
We bought a GS extended service contract @ $4,800 for 3 years. Expensive for sure, but during the first 2 years they paid $4,000 for covered expenses, and we still have nearly a year remaining. Whichever company you buy from, be sure to get the seals and gaskets rider, otherwise, if an engine seal fails causing a loss of oil and a ruined engine, they do not pay.

Find out what they consider "normal wear and tear" BEFORE you buy a warranty. My sister had to sue the warranty company because she had $2,600- engine damage, that they considered normal wear and tear. She won, and they paid, and had to pay her attorney. They then cancelled her warranty with no refund. Again, she threatened to sue. They refunded on a pro-rata basis... meaning she didn't get much. This may not be normal, but it sure has soured me toward any after-market warranty. Again, just be sure what you're getting into.

I'm sure forum readers would like to know which company played this way. Who was it your sister had to sue?

We have Cornerstone, reasonable and dependable. If the co. only sells through dealers than go to one and negotiate if you can. Be sure to get the best plan.

We have a 1999 Discovery with 111,000 miles. The GoodSam extended warranty has been a great comfort. We pay $165 per month with "Seals and Gaskets" coverage. I have had several claims with the work being preformed by Cummins, both in Tampa, Florida and Manassas, Va. No problems what so ever with the claims. Our deductible is $500 plus some non covered items. The repair in Manassas was on our trip to St. Johns. Total cost was $5,800. We paid $500.
Our RV's are complex machines. Heavy duty engines, chassis, plus all the "nice things" that make our style of traveling enjoyable.
Having an extended warranty is to one of those things that make life easier. We purchased our coach with 27,000 miles on it. Lots of miles and time for things to happen, which most likely will happen.
Good Sam has be very good to us. I would recommend GS for an extended warranty policy.
