After market Tiffin warranties

We just purchased a 2007 Phaeton with 11,000 miles (smokin' deal from McClains in OK City). When we close our deal we know that they are going to try and sell us an after market warrenty. Are their any good ones out there? Are they worth the money?

I negotiated a 50% discount on the extended warranty from a completely different dealer. Shop it around. Dealers sell extended warranties, just like they sell RV's. You can buy your extended warranty from a number of companies. I would not buy it for $4,000, but at $2,000 it was something I was interested in. 7 year, 50,000 mile on an 07 Monaco Diplomat. Only time will tell if I save $2,000 over the next 7 years.

There are plenty of good warranties but you should definitely shop for prices and negotiate with the dealer on price as well.

I suggest that you consider only Exclusionary warranties, the kind that covers everything except what is explicitly excluded. Also consider the size deductible you want. You can get a small one but it drives the price up considerably. A high deductible saves money but still gives you coverage for big ticket repairs.

Luke & Gary are around.

When I bought my coach I got an on-line quote from for an extended warranty, and took that quote with me when I went in to sign all of the paperwork at the dealer. The dealer offered me the same exact warranty from the same company (USA Travel Care), for twice the price. When I showed them my quote they said they couldn't touch it. Saved myself a big chunk of money.

You'll get a of of people that will tell you that extended warranties are a waste of money. Some folks have had bad horror stories dealing with various companies. I on the other hand have been very happy with mine. My warranty cost me $1700 and paid for itself the second year that I owned it. I still have another 4 1/2 years/75,000 miles to go. I only put about 3500 miles a year on the odometer, so I doubt I will hit the mileage before I hit the date.
