Give wholesale warranties a call and compare.

Last July the seven yr Good Sam plan with $100 deductible was less the $2000. After a few weeks,they dropped it to$1775. It covers bumper to bumper.

They gave me a great price to for 4yrs $1800 including tires. My motorhome was brand new so what were they giving me? Then thgey sent me an estimate for 7 yrs and that was $5700. WW's was $2000 cheaper with a $100 deductible and tire coverage.

Exclusionary Service Contract

We're considering an extended warranty and have had coverage on previous RVs that never paid for repairs so I asked for what I thought might be a simple contract that said what it did not cover and everything else would be covered. Both the Wholesale and EX Care exclusionary contracts are far from simple and they both say that they don't cover items that are not listed as covered, a bit of double speak.

I think I'll do without. If its there purpose to have me pay them for services that they are doing their best to avoid having to provide I don't need them.

Up-Date on Extended Warranty Cancelation

I am only waiting to make damn sure that it is canceled before I send in the extended service plan to Good Sam. I have Good Sam's form here on my desk ready to go. I can complete the application online so that is what I'll do.
I just got off of the phone with Tony Lopes at DeMontrond RV in Houston
about canceling the NWAN Extended Warranty that he added to my loan for the Silverback 33IK that I bought back in February, without asking if I wanted to have it. He had never acknowledged that he had received the 'Cancelation' form that I sent. Now he is telling me that it takes 6 to 8 weeks for the cancelation to take effect and the money sent to the bank that made the loan. The moral to this story is: Be damn careful with these loan officers when you sign the papers. Sometimes I thank they do not have your best interest at heart.
The thing that did not set to well me is he was very short with me on the phone. I don't think he got his commission for the Extended Warranty.
Like StoneyG said I may go without the EW...........................

If you're smart, never buy an extended warranty at point of sale. The dealership makes money off the warranty sale, so they push it hard. Don't be intimidated by the finance officer saying it's the best price now and it will go up if you wait. You have a one year factory warranty already in place ... wait till towards the end of that year before you shop for an extended warranty ... you'll find the price will be near the same despite what the finance officer tried to blow at you. With some policies, the extended warranty starts while your factory warranty is in effect ... you basically loose a year off say a five year plan.

The funny thing about this is I normally do not buy Extended Warranty policy's at all, but this time I bought into "With the cost of repairs", "peace of mind" "Bumper to Bumper coverage" and on & on. I gave in to the sales BS!
And like someone said I may never need the warranty. After all in Las Vegas insurance is called gambling. You are betting that you will need the extended coverage and they are betting that you never use it. Money in who's pocket?????

Me too, but after a little research I thought wholesale warranties was the best deal, how they will pay if needed in the future remains to be seen, but life's a gamble is it not?

We looked long and hard at a warranty for our Forester and opted out. The dealer was trying to sell us a bumper to bumper warranty but when I called the warranty company I found that they only covered non-structural items and would not cover any damage caused by water intrusion. Seal failures, cracked skylights, damage from nature, or any structural failure will be referred to your insurance for coverage was the response I received. I have asked this same question of other companies that offer service contracts and I have heard a similar story. It's bumper to bumper except... coverage. This company may be different but I would certainly ask first.

I also asked how the company handled issues that had to be handled by an out of network shop that is unwilling to accept payment directly from the company due to unforeseen issues. The standard statements were either tow the rig to another shop or pay and get reimbursed. Both might be considered acceptable options depending on the situation but most people aren't willing to deal with this hassle.

Next question, what happens when I pay more for a repair than you are willing to cover? I would expect that you'll be told you're out of luck or that doesn't happen to be the response. It happens...

Next question, do you have a cost sheet that can be released to customers for the acceptable cost for various repairs and labor rates. I have never gotten a list when I asked this question which is somewhat expected since the accepted rates likely fluctuate but if a company tells me I have to pay then I want to know if I'm going to get stuck with a bill that exceeds my deductable.

Next question. What happens when the combined towing distance exceeds the distance covered by the policy, assuming that in this worst case scenario the rig was towed in. Don't be surprised if a service contract company asks you to bill your insurance. AAA and some insurance companies will cover the initial tow but I doubt any will cover a secondary tow requested because a service contract was not accepted by the first dealership. Can you see how that could put you in a tight spot?


In general, when considering a policy I would call the company behind the policy and ask directed questions as to what is covered. They are the ones that have to stand behind the policy and if they don't know an answer I would hold their feet to the fire for an answer in writing before spending any money. Many folks use these policies and many have had good experiences. Asking questions and getting a full picture from the companys responses will allow you to set your expectations so that if something does happen you aren't caught in a bad spot or angered by an unexpected charge.
