How Do You Use For U'r Rv Waranty Co.?

Just purchased a Newmar and the dealer offers me a warranty company that does not get good reviews at all. While searching the web as you know they all say their the best. Looking for some suggestions please. I know this information is on this site, but can't seem to figure out the search process here. Dumb, should have said "Who Do You Use For U'r RV Warranty Co."!!

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

Congrats on the new rig! Keep her between the ditches!

I've never been a fan of extended warranties. I would see what the extended warranty costs, then put that same amount in a special bank account and use it only for repairs. I think that in most cases you will come out ahead.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Never used or needed a warranty. Save your money spent on a warranty in a separate fund so you'll have it in case.

Give Wholesale Warranties a call. You have to decide for yourself if the peace of mind is worth it to you.

I use Arch's wallet for my warranty company. Unless it's a Volkswagen or a diesel in which case I'd buy a warranty, however that will never happen.

Don't know where I'm going, spose I'll get there anyway.

Welcome to the forum!

Here is a link to over 3,300 previous discussions on this topic.


Use the green box at the top for your searching on this site. It is powered by Google and uses the same formating.

Take any five threads from the link that are from the last three months and you will have everything offered as advice. They will run the gamut from the equivalent of hitting the lottery to the worst investment since rotary phones.

If you are buying a new coach, then every nut, bolt, and zip tie are under a 100% warranty for at least a year. The engine and drive train will be a minimum of 5 years as will be most things attached to the chassis. Newmar will warranty most everything else, and every item supplied by a vendor and installed will also be covered under their warranty, so at least for the first year, you are paying for something that contractually will defer to the original warranty.
