Extended Warranty Service

I am looking for some advice/ reviews on extended warranty services and companies. I have heard nothing but negative things about GoodSam and i am 100% against using them. I have found a few other providers and was hoping you guys could provide some review, whether it be negative or positive.

the first is:

RV & Motorhome Extended Warranty Plans


and the other i have come across is:

RV Extended Warranty Coverage at guaranteed lowest prices! Call us at 1-800-939-2806 for a free quote today!

and finally:

http://www.inds.com/insurers_product...ces.asp#starrv




Please assist me in deciding on which extended warranty to use, even if it is not listed, i am open to all comments and advice.

thank you

I think they are all about the same. The devil is in the details. Be sure to read all the fine print and follow the instructions exactly when making a claim.

Never had to use mine but have friends that swear by their GS policy.

We use Easy Care and have been very happy with them. The contract is only 4 pages long and easy to understand.

We have had Easy Care for 3 5th wheels. Only had to use it last winter (2 times). There are two options. Be sure to get the option that covers the most items. Found a repair man last winter in Florida that came to the campground to do the repairs (replace microwave and furnace control module). He made an estimate, called Easy Care they authorized it, and Easy Care paid him direct-just cost us the $50.00 deductible.

I have Good Sam and they did take care of a major repair after one of their inspectors looked at the problem. The Huei injector pump & six injectors were replaced with me paying the deductable and a few items not covered such as enviromental fees for disposal of oil. I think they paid enough to cover two years or more of the policy. As said above check out the policy and get a good feel for what they and/or do not cover.
I DO NOT recommend: RV WARRANTY AMREICANRVWARANTIES.COM Scott Stevens 877-248-8265. About a year ago I was traveling, had a break down, and needed help. I could not find my policy but found the business card and called the salesman. He was really put out that I contacted him. He gave me a policy number (not mine and that added more confusion to the problem). Later in an email he called me an ungratful.... I contacted the company, complained about him and cancelled the policy.

I believe a general consensus on previous posts concerning this subject is to take whatever the monthly cost would be for an extended warranty and put it in a savings fund for repairs only. Too many outs exist for the warranty companies in my opinion.

I believe the option is called "Total Care".

I've read countless threads on this topic and have to say that IMO I don't think anything close to a general consensus has been reached. Many folks do self insure but others find the peace of mind that these insurance policies offer to be a good thing. It's all in what the owner is looking for and what risks they are willing to take.

I have Interstate. Never had to use them, but for peace of mind, I couldn't beat the price. My policy covers coach and chassis for 7 years/107000 miles. I guess if you use it once for a major repair it has paid for itself. If you sock the money away, that might work too unless you have a very large repair or several in short period of time. It like I was saying - peace of mind.

Wow, thank you all for the responses, i guess i will have to look at my options and read the fine print. I guess everyone may have a horror story about their experience, but i guess if you dont expect too much there isnt much to be disappointed about later or if you read the small print and understand whats covered and what isnt. Thanks again for the responses, i will check out all the options you have given me.
