The unit has some additional incentives on it so the price ended up being 30% below MSRP. Other units we looked at were typically discounted at least 20% below MSRP with the exception of the Winnebagos.

That's great! We just purchased one, but I was only able to negotiate 26% off MSRP here in the Los Angeles area. Can't wait! Did you get any type of extended warranty?

No extended warranty. I'm a tinker and putter so for me a warranty is more of a pain than piece of mind. The $$$ saved will go into a savings account for repairs if they are needed. However, I've found that over the years an attention to detail tends to keep most nasty problems at bay. If I didn;t have access to my tools etc then I would have most certainly gone for the warranty

With reference to an extended (two year) warranty, check the manuals for your appliances. Most have a two year warranty from the appliance manufacturer. The Onan generator has a two year warranty on everything and three years on major components. Our Ford chassis has three years on everything, five years on the powertrain. The extended warranty that has been discussed would be covering the coach components and labor to troubleshoot, remove and replace appliances. I assume that Forest River passes component warranty costs through to the vendor. I don't think you are losing much by not getting an extra year like the travel trailers. When an extended warranty was offered to us for our Sunseeker, the cost would have been more than any one major appliance. As long as no more than one fails during the would-be warranty period, I'm ahead. I can replace any of them myself.
