Why oh why, are you wanting to spend a lot money on an extended warranty to cover the second year for only the cabin while you own the MH. You mentioned that you would sell it after two years. Seems like you would be better off pocketing that money. My two-cents!

I got a seven year extended warranty and have not used it yet. I have owned my 2011 for three years bought new in April 2012. The dealer quoted 5200$ and I ended up paying 2200$ there is a lot of "wiggle " room in the price of this product. I did good on that but was sucker enough to buy a special coating to protect the paint and I'm ashamed to admit a tire warranty. don't ask what I paid for that cause I'm not telling.

Freightliner drive train = 5 years
Allison transmission = 3 years
Appliances vary by the manufacturer but may be more than 1 year

I'm thinking all the same thoughts too, I am more concerned about slides, leaks, exterior cargo structure, interior furnishings and those kinds of items. I found a Good Sam Extended "Service" Plan with $250 ded, $68 a mo and no down payment. It is a 4 yr plan that I can cancel at anytime for a $50 fee. Am I all wet behind the ears and worrying too much?

Like I said in the beginning of this thread, opinions differ on this subject.

If you get piece of mind from having the EW then by all means get one.

Extended warranties wouldn't be offered if the seller weren't making money off of them. The odds are in their favor that they won't have to pay out more than what you pay for them. It's just another form of insurance which is nothing more than legalized gambling. They are betting you won't and you are betting you will need to have repairs.

That is true Bob, insurance is something you have for peace of mind hoping you never have to use it. ..and of course they make money, it's business
Thanks all!

But, you said you would sell the MH after two years. That means only one year of non-cabin coverage. Like to also warn you that the warranty insurance does not pay (after deductible) for 100% of even a covered item. This is because they have fixed hours to fix a particular item and a great majority of repair establishments require more hours. You pay out of pocket!

Some EWs require you to keep some maintenance records. If you cannot prove you did the maintenance they will not cover it.
