You're gonna get a lot of opinions on this subject. IMHO if your coach is in relatively good shape extended warranties are a waste of money. Yes if you have a major failure, engine, tranny etc. it would have been worth it. Those repairs are rare however. I have banked the money I have saved NOT buying a warranty and I am way ahead of the game. Like I said though, there will be some people that say an extended warranty saved them a lot of money.
Good luck with your decision.
Happy Trails!!

Thanks, in the past I have not bought the warranty either. This MH only has 16k on it. It a E450 chassis. Good Sam quoted me $600 /yr. My thought is I should be able to ring any issues in that time period. My real concern is, do they really pay or is it a fight.

If your thinking this is a new vehicle type warranty, it's not. It will cover a lot of things. I've seen warranties where gaskets or seals failure are not covered etc.. Look close at the language of the contract.

Never been a fan of the service policies (by law they're NOT a "warranty"), but I sure wish I had bought one for the present rig!

I bought my extended warranty from Wholesale Warranties. they have a good business bureau rating and the price for 7 years was more reasonable than others.Bought my RV a year ago new. I hashed it around wondering if I really needed it, but you know what I have one more payment and I'm free and clear for 6 more yrs and it's a load off my shoulders

I too bought from Wholesale Warranties. I guess piece of mind more than anything for the high ticket items. The 3 yrs on the Ford piece will go by quickly with little to no miles. Haven't used yet but if I ever do. They have a good installment plan which helps having to fork out a bunch of cash.

Read Read then reread the coverage. Most people with problems either don't follow procedures, or assume uncovered items. Also go to a shop that knows how to writeup a covered item, coverage is determined on a legal writeup not a "it don't work" Gaskets and seals can be covered at extra cost. Buy smart live EZ.

we used our Good Sam warranty several times. The first was on a tire that was damage. I followed the directions and was covered without any problem. My friends that I travel with a lot don't agree with extended warranties. Most have a large structure that they can keep their coaches in and the shop and tools to almost rebuild them.
I agree with the comments on read the plan carefully. Make sure that you know what is covered. My original DP would have cost a lot to get into the rear engine under the queen bed.
The new E450 V10 is not exactly easy to work on. Also I no longer have the tools to do it.
There is no right answer.
Have fun and RV a lot it is great.
