It's a shame you even have to ask the question after laying out the moola for a new Essex. But, as a rule, I don't buy extended warranties.

In Our Case

If I remember right we paid about $3600 for a 5 year extended warranty.

At about 2 1/5 years it has almost paid for itself.

One slide motor brake, a blown wheel bearing seal, a leaking fuel inlet hose, wires damaged by getting caught in a slide, and a bad rear view camera monitor.

But is it necessary on a brand new coach? I think I would wait until the manufacturers warranty expires.

I'm with muddypaws. Mine has paid for itself so far. Remember, it is kinda like accident insurance. You hate to use it but are glad it is there is needed.

I've had great service from Wholesale Warranties.

I self insure, select my own servicers, and never deny myself a claim.

This question, as stated above has been talked about extensively. Some will buy some wont, Most diesel chassis , engine and transmission are covered for 3 years as are most gas chassis. As you know the coach manufacture is for one year, except Entegra at 2 yrs. Are you a handy man ? can you fix and maintain things ? or do you have a problem identifying the difference between rt hand and lft hand screw drivers. What ever you decide the most important thing to do is "READ" the contract and know what you are paying for is covered and what is not. Then decide of an extended warranty is for you. Like it was also stated above you can always buy an EW later and they negotiate price also. Good Luck and welcome to IRV2

Ditto. And then make sure to do your homework and don't buy it from your dealer.

I used to handle the financing in new car dealerships and I believe completely in extended warranties for vehicles. Compare the cost of the contract to the potential risk. With the way these rigs are built, I wouldn't chance it. I bought a 6 yo rig and now the contract company is getting nervous about the claims. People have diesel motors go bad. Want to self insure for a diesel? Not me and I'm the former car dealer.

My fuel pump went weak and broke a piston. My dash AC had a slight leak and the speedo jumped to 40 as soon as I started moving. Total claim was for >$10k. 4 year warranty cost $4500. I win.

If you decide to go with an extended warranty, just make sure you follow the manufacturer's required service requirements to the "T". It took me almost a year to put together what I believe is a comprehensive list of requirements for the chassis, engine, transmission and generator on my coach.

Make sure all of the maintenance, whether you do it yourself or have it professionally done, is well documented....even if it's just an inspection requirement. Properly dated receipts are a must. For example, don't purchase your oil six months in advance of when you actually change it.

Lack of proper documentation is the number one reason why extended policy insurers deny claims for the expensive repairs involving the components listed above.

Or they use it against you!
Case in point: Owner had a transmission fail, insurance co requested maintenance records. They determined the engine oil wasn't changed till 750 miles past recommended mileage. Result was that they denied ALL coverage. The company did refund the owners payment for the so called coverage and that was it.
