That sounds like a good price to me, but then your coach is 5 years newer than mine. Coverage for the windshield seems redundant to me. Is that not covered by collision/comprehensive of your insurance?

I think your are right. I'd have to look at the policy, but I think windshield is under the rv insurance and not the warranty. I think it was tires that was an option that we took.

I too am not a big fan of extended warranties. Never buy them. But made an exception on my motorhome. My wife plans on taking the coach out with her girlfriends on occasions and the warranty would be a good piece of mind while away and me not being there to fix it. It is cheap insurance

This is the first extended warranty I've bought. Well, for the exception of cell phone warranty because I'm hard on them. When we were looking at the coach to decide which one we wanted, I was making a mental note of things that I could fix. Everything is pretty much straight forward, but it's a lot of different components melted into a house. The hard part would be figuring out how to get to something that needs fixing. The slides would be a real headache if one of the tension cables snapped. Or let's say the fiberglass shower cracks...seen if before. What about the roof as some owners have experienced. After all, we drive these rolling houses at 60 - 75 mph down the highway while twisting, vibrating, and stressing.

Be careful and read the exceptions when considering aftermarket extended service plans. Good Sam ESP excludes roofs, walls and other structural coach components.

Something else to consider w/ Good Sam ESP is that you MUST take the coach to a Camping World service center. With ours (Rt 66), we do have the option to take it a non-network service center if a Rt 66 is not convenient. Also, my experience with getting a prompt service apt at Camping World has proven to be, shall we say, challenging, in the past.
