For the small price it looks to be a great value. I was happy that someone here gave me the heads up and I was able to add it on in May after buying the trailer back in September.

Does this FR extended warranty apply to all FR brands? It was never mentioned when I signed the paperwork for our new Lacrosse recently. For $150 I would have seriously considered it.

Best thing to do is call Forest River directly and inquired 574-389-4600.

Like several people here I just asked to speak with the person regarding the second year warranty offer. The lady was so helpful & within a few minutes it was a done deal.

According to FR the dealers are not obligated to say anything about the second year warranty. I went through all my paperwork several times and there was nothing about it in the pile of papers. When I mentioned about the 2nd year warranty and about being surprised that dealers were not obligated to say anything he said something about FR being worried that some dealers would hike the price up.

Our paperwork was removed as I noticed a newly arrived TT on the lot had paperwork where it was readily noticed. When I contacted FR I was told they would like the paperwork done in the required ten days of acceptance but would accept the application as long as it was within a few months of my purchase. It's always best to call and talk with someone directly then rely on word of mouth........

Great thread!

My wife and I are to pick up a 2012 Surveyor 305 in a couple weeks. The finance guy had "encouraged" us to purchase a 6-year protection package, which he assured us would be worth the additional $2000 over the life of the loan. When spending that much money for a TT, we thought it might be a good idea. But, we weren't convinced and told them we would decide for sure when we took delivery and signed the paperwork. After reading this thread, and the fine print on the Surveyor brochure, I think that 2nd year for $150 would be enough... I'll be sure to mention that to the salesman and business manager. :-)

Thanks for the great info!

We should get our 831fkbss in by the end of August. Happy to learn about this warranty and we will definitely get it for the extra $150.

Not strange at all ours was 250.00 and I worked directly with FR to get it setup.
I do not recall the break down FR can tell you but pop ups are 100.00, then there is a group at 150.00 and the last group is 250.00 the higher end and larger 5th wheel campers, ours is the 365 SAQ Sierra.

Dealer is most likely giving you the correct price.

I can't speak for the other FR models, but we picked up our Windjammer on 5/31 and the cost for the 2nd year warranty was $150. Our dealer submitted the necessary paperwork, and we've already received 2nd year warranty confirmation back in the mail from FR. Unless the price has changed in the last 30 days, it sounds like your dealer is either incorrect on the price, or they are planning to pocket an extra $100 bucks.
