Any thoughts on Warranties in general and have you used either of the above or Good Sam as well?
Thanks for your feedback,
What do you want the warranty for?
The Ford engine, chassis and drive train has its own 3 year 36,000 mile plus warranty. The F-53 is solid and isn't a issue.
Do you want a warranty for the microwave oven, refrigerator, heater, water tanks, roof, windows, etc?
What does the dealers warranty cover? Don't let him say bumper to bumper because it doesn't.
How much deductible per incident?
Is it have a yearly max or max amount for the term of the coverage?
NOW this is what I think...
Put the amount you would pay for the warranty in a special bank account.
And use it if you have anything that goes wrong after the 1 year Forest River Warranty expires. You will save a lot if you do this and not throw away your money on a almost worthless piece of paper.
I also would say if your dealer is close to your house make sure you get any issues taken care ASAP after you buy.
Front end alignment if is steer all over. (FR pays but you take it to Ford)
Water leaks from pipes, hydraulic system leaks or if the levelers or slides act funny.
You can always come back here and ask.
Good luck on your decision.
