After reading you guys's posts about the Camping World extended warranty I'm starting to wonder if I made a smart decision to purchase one of their warranties last year when we bought our new Windjammer. Would it be a good idea for me to look at someplace like the other guy who mentioned United States warranty?

Extended warranties, service contracts, maintenance agreements, etc are sold by leaches who are offering them only because it makes them rich, at your expense. For every lottery winner who "makes out" on their extended warranty, there are hundreds who get no pay back.
Self insure - take the money that you would pay for an extended warranty, put it in a "rainy day" account and use this account only for those items that your extended warranty would have covered. The vast majority of people will end up WAY ahead.

Bought GS Extended warranty. They refused to pay for AC compressor failure on 6 yr old unit. Said I failed to pay extra for gasket and seals coverage

Read the fine print. I cancelled my policy and put the premium in the savings account each quarter

IMHO. It is a rip off

I like Coach-Net. You can tailor your plan from as little to as much as you want - everything from roadside assistance to a full fore to aft wrap.

We bought an XtraRide policy from Protective Asset Protection and the dealer said it covers everything bumper to bumper except stuff that wears out. That sounded good but we all know about sales guys. I'm calling the insurance company tomorrow to get the "exclusion list", that should call out what is not covered.

Anyone know about these guys?

I also have a policy with them so will be interested in what you learn. My policy has a $200 deductible per service visit. Scheduled to have several things taken care of next week including a leaking front windshield.

Only problem with these extended warrantys is nobody wants to do warranty work .tell the service manager you have a problem with your R V and you have a extended warranty see how long it takes to get something fixed first words out of him is you know we have a lot of work ware short people maybe you can drop it off in a month or so
Then call. Back in a few days under a different name and and I like something fixed I have cash no warranty
If I were you I take that $1500.00 a year and save for when something breaks
I rather deal with the (IRS) then a extended warranty CO.

Wondering why you need an extended warranty? Take the money paid for the warranty, put it in a coffee can, and when something goes wrong pull out of the can. Chances are excellent nothing will happen with your new rig for a couple years and by then there will be enough in the can to cover anything that would be covered by an extended warranty since most extended warranties don't cover things that usually go wrong. And you will have extra for the next casino

Well thanks for the replies. I usually never buy extended warranties on anything I buy but I was seriously considering it. Very disappointed to hear problems with Good .Sam. Their emergency road service has been very good for me in California, Texas and Maine. Hoped to hear some positives.
