I bought a 2015 Silverback 33IK two weeks ago. There was a 7 year NWAN Extended Warranty added without telling us much about it. When I saw the $7600 added to the loan I almost backed out of the deal. I tried to get some information about the coverage of this warranty. The only thing they would say "Its a great plan and covers bumper to bumper" with $200 deductible. Nothing in writing at that time. I did some checking with Good Sam, their plan looks like it covers all the main items that the NWAN had and it is less than half the cost. About $1375 for three year service plan W/$200 deductible. Lets see $458 per year or $1085 per year. The Good Sam also covers tires. I called the dealer, about the difference in these cost, and cancelation form to me is in the mail.

Gene, I think I would have backed out of the deal. Not saying the dealer is dishonest, just a little underhanded. What else are you about to find out about the deal. He got caught with his hand in the pie and now wants you to think he is a nice guy. "The check is in the mail".

If you wouldn't mind, post the dealer information for the benefit of others.

The dealer for the Silverback FW is a large dealer in Houston, they have been around for a long time. After talking to the finance officer that handled all the paper work, I think he is being honest with me. After I told him what I found out about Good Sam service plan he was the one that said he would send me a cancelation form to cancel the NWAN plan. 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.

Wholesale Warranties Extended Service Plan

I talked to WW Extended Service about coverage on my Cedar Creek Silverback 33IK FW. It looks like they have about the best deal for an extended service plan. The plan I started with from the dealer was with NWAN. Their plan was for seven years and cost $7577.00 w/$200 deductible. The WW plan for seven years which cover axels, springs, brakes, wiring, light fixtures and more. Cost $2884 w/$50 deductible. For tire & wheel coverage for seven years is $449 W/$0 deductible. The "what is not covered" list is short and are things like batteries and carpet. The Plasma/LCD/LED TV are only covered for 5 years. Normal life of a Plasma/LCD/LED TV is considered 5 Years in an RV.
The Good Sam extended service plan was only a three year plan w/$200 deductible. At the end of three years the price of the plans would probably go up.

I hope this helps

The cost will go up in two years but by how much?
I have been told that a 7 year plan is only 5 years because you will get the one year warranty and can buy the second year warranty from Forest River for $150. When my last fiver was two years old I priced an extended warranty/service contract thru Good Sam and two others and ended up not getting one because I couldn't find one that covers delamination of frames. I am told that none of then will cover those two items? For the price that they wanted, I could buy the parts and fix it myself. Good Luck
