Are they worth it? I just bought a new Journey 36G Diesel. The dealer quoted me about $3200 for a 7 year protection. is this a fair price.

Fair? Don't know, but it's the going price.

These extended warranties are pure profit for the dealers. You could try negotiating.

If your coach is new, the 7 years includes the period that is covered by the manufacture - - so you are not getting 7 years, maybe 6 years. Also on a new coach all of the components have warranties (A/C, refer, etc) from either respective manufacturers.

Take that $3200, put it is a savings account and add to it each month to cover repairs after the warranty expires.

The first price a dealer gives you includes a 50% commission for the dealer. Your new Journey has a one year bumper to bumper warranty from Winnebago. The engine has a five year warranty and the transmission will have a 3-5 year warranty. The chassis is covered up to three years and each appliance will have a warranty of 1-3 years.

If you buy an Extended Service Plan now you will be buying duplicate coverage the the "warranty" company will pay nothing the first year and very little the next few years.

So enjoy your new Journey and when your warranties expire think about buying an Extended Service Plan then. If your Journey seems to be a lemon, buy an ESP. If your Journey is a good motorhome you don't need an ESP.

I tend to agree with what everyone else has said. When we bought ours last year, an 01 UA, we did buy a 2 yr agreement.

The company is Assurant, and normally I wouldn't have bought something like that, but since we were in pretty unknown territory for us, we felt it was a wise purchase. Our coach was out of any factory warranty, and since the engine and trans were no longer covered I figured we best do something in case of a catastrophic failure. The first quote from the dealer was $3500, and we got it for $1800. So far they have paid for about $1000.00 of repairs, and have been very easy to deal with. If I were buying a new coach, I would highly doubt I would buy more coverage.
