Coach Net Extended Warranty-RV Protect

Has anyone had any experience with the Coach Net RV Protect extended warranty program that you would be willing to share?

Thank you for your help.

IMHO, CoachNet is the best and most popular roadside assistance provider available... but I wasn't aware that they offered extended warranties???

On edit: I just looked it up and they do indeed now offer this EW. I've got no experience with it but if they provide service anything like they do for roadside, it should be a good one.

Actually, they are now offering a complete "family" of protection warranties beyond their Flagship Roadside Protection Plans.

I don't know them all but here is a "cut & paste" from a news article posted on the Internet regarding their suite of products.

Coach-Net has unveiled its full line of Coach Net Protect Suite products, designed to “provide peace-of-mind for customers and a valuable offering that RV dealers’ finance and insurance offices can share with buyers.”
According to a press release, the new Protect Suite product line, available exclusively through participating dealers, will be featured at the 2013 RV Dealers International Convention/Expo, Sept. 30–Oct. 4 at the Rio All-Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. Coach-Net representatives can be found at Booth No. 321 from Oct. 1–3.

Products in Coach-Net’s Protect Suite include the following:

• Roadside Protect: The cornerstone of the Protect Suite, providing 24/7 RV technical and roadside assistance and other benefits through Coach-Net’s premier membership plans, which provide all-inclusive coverage for RVs and other personal vehicles owned, rented, borrowed or leased.

• RV Protect: An extended service contract available for both towable and motorhome owners that protects members from unexpected repair costs.
• Asset Protect: A gap waiver option for customers, which closes the financial gap in coverage when total-loss insurance payouts are less than the outstanding loan balance.

• Hazard Protect: A comprehensive tire and wheel hazard protection that covers all types of new and used recreational vehicles from common road hazards such as metal, nails, screws, potholes, glass and debris, with terms available from one to seven years.

• Certified Pre-Owned: A product through which dealers can have their used inventory certified for reliability and quality, increasing the marketability and value of dealers’ used inventory, and through which consumers will receive a 90-day service contract protecting their investment.

• Finish Protect (coming soon): A product offering protection for RVs’ interior and exterior surfaces, including protection of paint and gel coats, interior fabrics, interior leather and vinyl, and optional protection against rips, tears, punctures and burns.

• Shield Protect (coming soon): A product that will provide coverage of glass replacement and repair, including windshields, windows and other RV glass.

“This comprehensive line of products demonstrates our steadfast commitment to providing peace-of-mind solutions for dealers and consumers,” said Dan Lopez, vice president of Coach-Net sales. “For participating dealers, the Coach-Net Protect Suite provides a benefit by adding a dedicated and trusted RV industry partner to their F&I department, while also helping them deliver a valuable set of product offerings to their buyers who want to enjoy the RV lifestyle with complete confidence.”

Coach-Net is currently enrolling RV dealers nationwide who wish to participate in the Protect Suite program. For more information, visit Home Page - Coach-Net.com.

In looking down the list, it does not actual appear there is an Extended Warranty. I suppose RV Protect might be considered something of an extended warranty plan, but it does not appear so to me. I have NOT looked at these documents myself, so do not know for sure. I do have the Coach Net Roadside Assistance.

I believe it's called RV Protect.

Check the list again.

I spoke to the reps at the Tampa RV show yesterday.... I will follow-up with them next week for a quote. I have them for road side service and have had great service from them, so if I do decide to get an extended warranty, they will be a top contender.
Under the extended warranty program ( RV Protect) they have a few different packages for both towable and motorhomes... depends on what coverage you are looking for.

Coach-Net is now a part of National Motor Club, Inc. NMC offers many vehicle-related services, so you can expect to see more offerings under the popular Coach-net brand name that actually have little to do with Coach-net itself. I would not assume that Coach-net's excellence in roadside service automatically carries over to other NMC services and products. I'm not saying this offering is crap, just that you should not make assumptions about it.

Seems like every vendor is trying to spread out to get more revenue. Look at Good Sam's, Camping World. One day it is a discount camping club and the next day offering everything from soup to nuts. Just another way to increase their profits.
Safe travels.... ed

You make a very good point, Gary. I was also seriously considering looking into this service due to the outstanding experience I've had with the road service they offer. But your point is valid and well- taken. I will still investigate but will carefully weigh the pros and cons and leave prior experience out of it.

I've never bought an extended warranty on anything until now. Our new coach has had many issues including 2 AC's replaced, microwave replaced and many other things in the first 6 months of ownership. As we near the end of the factory warranty and with this track record and with the complexity of new electronics and coaches, I opted for the CoachNet RV protect plan.
I also for the tire/wheel coverage. The plans include the roadside service also. It came in at a price of about 1/2 of what Good Sam wanted . Since we've kept our prior RV's for about 10 yrs, I opted for the 7 year plan. Whether it's a good purchase or not, time will tell.

Like any insurance -life, home, car- you hope you never need it, but it offers incredible peace of mind in case you do. While I always opt out of the extended warranties a sales person tries to sell in department stores I would never drive a car off the lot without an extended warranty.

BTW, it also pays to shop for vehicle extended warrantiesI have also found that for a car dealer, extended warranties are a profit center in almost all cases, and there is no limit as to how much a car dealer marks up even a manufacturer's extended warranty policy. I once bought a Toyota extended warranty policy. The dealer wanted to charge me $2,000 and after shopping around a little, I found another dealer who sold me same exact policy for $1,000. The numbers aren't exact, but do show the premium some dealers try to get for selling the same product.

As for the CoachNet policy I did an almost line for line comparison with the policy our dealer offered us and in most cases the policies were not only similar but they described the coverage using the exact same words. I didn't do as similar a comparison with Good Sam, but what I did check was again very similar.

Good luck.

I have CoachNet extended warranty on my 2011 Bounder Classic. As soon as the 1year factory warranty expired, like clockwork, I had multiple issues needing almost $2000 in repair.
-hydraulic jack replaced
-elec converter replaced
-other minor issues

I paid my $100 deductible and coach net paid the rest. Overall pleased with it especially since these items added up to pay for what I spent on the 5 year warranty. RV's have endless problems, unless you are a die-hard DIY person buy a warranty.

Coach net is designed for new or near new coaches. The coverage limit is 60,000 miles / 5 years, whichever comes first. They have no option for covering a used vehicle nearing either limit. Other plans such as Good Sam have options for coverage beginning at the current mileage / age of your vehicle.

I am process of purchasing 2004 Itasca. I am being offered the full ERS and extended warranty package from the dealer. Seems pricey to me, but then again, I don't want to purchase a replacement refrigerator or basement a/c in the next year.
