What an education! The only exception would be where a lot of long distance trips were involved far away from home and the cost of tows and only being able to use approved repair shops by the mftg
I just reread every post in this topic. We had purchased a 60 month EW on our 2013 Georgetown and had to ask for a refund when we traded it in. Our new 2014 Entegra comes with two year bumper to bumper and 5 yr structural on walls and roof while the Spartan chassis is I guess 3 yrs and five in drive chain.
When the finance guy asked me for $6800 for 7 yr EW I nearly choked.
That's a lot to spend on something brand new.
We intend to keep studious maintenance and don't really ride it hard. Appliances break but are usually fixable. Tires wear out as do brakes.
I suppose after the mfgr warranty expires I will re assess but the plan I was offered yesterday day from StarRV (whomever that is) did not sound attractive.
Who offers EW after the initial period. Good Sam?
My personal major concern is only Roadside Assist.
