extended warranty

Buying a new Winnebago Adventurer and am being offered the typical extended warranty. Normally I refuse these on auto purchases but wonder if I should consider this for the mh. Anyone with an opinion? Is it worth the cost?

Your new motorhome will come with a one year bumper to bumper warranty. The engine, transmission and chassis will have probably a three year warranty. The appliances will have a 1-3 year warranty. The tires and batteries will have their own separate warranties.

You will be buying duplicate coverage which means the dealer and extended service plan company will be making a BIG profit. Take the amount of money they want for the warranty (extended service plan) and put it in the bank. Then after the new motorhome's warranties expire if something goes wrong you will have money to pay for the repair.

sence you are buying It new I wouldn't buy any extended warranty, use It a lot you have one year to do a good test to see if something Is going to break, If you have a lot of breakdowns then you buy a extended wrranty after you run out of the factory warranty. Joe

In 2003 we bought a brand new class A that had a 3 year manufacturers warranty. Every thing was covered. They sold us an extended warranty that we weretold would take effect when our 3 years was up. The extend warranty was for 7 years. So we thought that we were covered till 2013. But not true we recently found out. It started the day we bought the class A. So we paid for three years of duplicate coverage and never had to use the extended. We won't do that again.
