after reading about the additional cabinet space, if you get the 42 inch tv entertainment center, I added that too. TV on the right side is a better viewing angle as well

The service plan was a requirement to get a better interest rate. I didn't have to buy it but I wanted the lower interest rate.

I also received the discount for doing the financing through them. At the time it was $9000 but I think their initial price was higher to begin with back then.

My quote was $79K - $5K for financing with them (US Bank) for a total cost out the door of $74K for a 3051S with every option except outside TV and arctic tanks which I do not need plus two options not on the list like a real oven plus the convection microwave and a full sink cover. They also were willing to set up my local rv guy but he is always so busy he did not want to take on more work by being a service center for them.

What was the cost of the service plan and what does it cover?
Thanks

The service was Xtraride and the price I was given was $5498. I'm not sure all that it covered but it seemed pretty comprehensive. If you ask about it they'll give you all the details and I got them to send me a 56 page booklet with all the details.

So, they give you a $4,000 discount and they kind of strong arm you into giving it all back to them in a Service Contract just to get the lowest interest rate?

At least it's optional and not required to get the discount as the loan is.

Think an earlier poster said you can cancel the service contract and get a full refund minus a small service fee

I still got my full discount for financing I just wanted the better interest rate too.

The way the math worked was that the better interest rate offset the entire cost of the service plan. That's how they sell it and it did work out exactly to cover the entire cost of the service plan. Coincidence? I think not.

They told me they buy down the interest rate when the service plan is purchased. I'm sure selling the service plan makes them some money but for me it meant a lower interest rate and if I kept the plan I wouldn't have seen the savings from the lower interest rate but I also wouldn't have paid any extra.

My price/monthly payments didn't go up by taking the service plan. However, with the dangling carrot of a better interest rate and feeling like the service plan was overpriced I cancelled it and felt good about my additional savings through the better interest rate.

And as I mentioned earlier both interest rates they offered beat anybody that I checked with including my local credit union. It just made sense to take the service plan since it didn't cost me anything extra but because I had the option to cancel it I decided that's what made the most sense for me. Others may decide to keep the service plan if they choose to purchase it in the first place.
