extended warranty for used rv

I recently purchased a 2009 Winnebago Chalet 24vr with 66,300 miles, and I want to go ahead with the CSI Allegiance extended warranty. Apparently the offer (years and miles) is handled differently for a used rv than it is for a new rv, which makes sense to me.

The sole offer is for 3 years-36,000 miles. Well, what happens in 3 years? Will I then be forever without an extended warranty? (I am a complete newbie at all of this...) Is there another company which offers a longer time frame?

On the other hand, I know that I will not drive 36,000 miles. Is that something I need to consider?

The offer is for a policy for 3 year--36,000 miles, $100 deductible, consequential damage coverage, tires & wheels, exclusionary, full coverage (whatever that means, I understand the other) for $4063.

This is higher than what I have read elsewhere on this site, but my rv is used with "high miles" and that plays a role in the cost, I guess.

Any thoughts or suggestions would be appreciated.

We bought our coach with 54,000 miles on it. We know the previous owners as they belong to the same Winnebago club as we do. They took good care of it.
When we bought it we got an extended warranty (coach and not chassis) and I think it cost us a couple thousand dollars. Th coverage is for everything that is associated with the coach(furniture, appliances, AC, Furnace, etc). We had a problem with the AC/Heat pump. Winnebago, up until the 2011 models< used the basement AC/Heat pump and the duct work runs up the back inside wall of the coach. The duct opened up (seam split) and I could not reach to fix it. I called the RV dealer and asked how much to repair. I was told it would be a bit over $1,100 and the reason was that the back fiberglass cap had to be removed to make the repairs. I mentioned that I had purchased the extended warranty and they called "Cornerstone". They called me back and said my cost would be $100 (The deductible). I had the chassis checked and serviced and I did not feel that I needed an extended warranty on it.

Hi kmesaaz,
Because you do not know the coach, consider getting a service contract. Check the document wording. It is a service contract not a warranty. After 3 years the contract is ended. Mine turned out just the opposite. I hit the miles before the months.

Different insurers have different rules. Most will insure up to 10 years old and usually some maximum mileage as well, e.g. 100k or 115k. Good Sam's extended warranty, for example, is available up to 115k miles or 12 years on motorhomes.

I would go for 5-7 years and 50K miles, something like that. For the same price. They are out there and some companies are solid and trustworthy. These contracts are marked up by the dealer about 50% and there is no reason you have to pay $4063. Dicker down. Exclusionary/consequential damage wording is very desirable.

Check financial stability at Weiss Ratings. No other ratings agencies can be trusted.

I sat back for a few minutes thinking about your rig, the service contract and the money. $4000 is a lot of money. IIf it were me I would "self Insure". I'm pretty handy and can fix or replace most things. But for you it will be what your comfortable with. As you related its an older unit and chances are something is going to need servicing. Things to consider I guess are you going to use the rig enought to need the peace of mind of coverage? Either way its a bit of a gamble but for me, I would put the money aside and use it as needed.

I recently purchased a 2009 Winnebago View. Best deal I've seen so far on extended service contract is from Wholesale Warranties at:

RV Extended Warranty Coverage, RV Warranty Specialists - Wholesale Warranties for RV Repair

They quoted me 5 yr/ 50,000 miles, exclusionary, consequential damages, $100 deductible for $2294. For $300 more, it goes up to 7 yr/ 70,000 miles.

The only hiccup I can see is that the mileage covered is total odometer mileage (rather than 50,000 miles on top of what I already have). Since I have less than 10,000 mile on the rig, this is not a problem for me.

They offer a pro-rated refund if you decide to cancel at any point.

I'm getting ready to buy this. Seems like a good deal.
