Camper warranty?

Well the dealer talked me into a 7 year warranty for less $750.00.

What concerns me is that unless you do all the scheduled maintenance the warranty is void!

Is this true? The camper is 34.5 feet and the dealer is 150 miles away.

Does other Forest River Dealers really honor the warranty?

I guess when the price is $5K less there is a cost.

FR offers 1 yr warranty with the purchase and a second yr on most units for an additional small fee. The longer warranties are third party and if you read the fine print are nothing more than a cash cow for the dealer. There are too many things that are not covered and too many outs. of you miss one annual inspection, you are out of warranty. My dealer offered a free lifetime warranty, but it requires an annual inspection of many items for considerable bucks. Yes these things need to be inspected, but anyone can check the roof for cracking caulk or tire pressure. Don't need to pay a dealer $120/hr to look at the roof. If the warranty is important to you, call FR and ask them for the 2nd year. Tell them the dealer did not offer it in lieu of their third party warranty. The dealer made a nice commission on that 7yr warranty.
