Newbie w/questions Just Purchased 06 Excursion

Signing papers this afternoon on a 2006 Excursion 39s, spartan chassis w/cat 350 c7, picking it up in Mesa, Az. next week ( we're in Colo.).
Since MH only has 9300 miles I was wondering if this is enough miles to get the bugs out. Unsure if this is a real issue or not, new to MH's , always had 5th Wheel. I not a fan of extended warranty but was thinking that for the first year it might not be a bad idea, was looking at GS Gold priced @ $1150 a year. Any feedback appreciated

Can't help much with warranty info. That's more personal preference, but welcome to the forum. You will get others to answer...

I just bought an 2006 Excursion 39s on a Freightliner chassis C7 350hp back about 4 months ago. I bought the extended warranty myself just for piece of mind. I love this coach and I am sure you will too. I don't think yours is even broke in yet.

Mine has 19000 miles on it and I have had only 1 issue and that is a gray water pipe leaking under the sink in the bedroom.
