But then some people keep their RV's for more then 2 years and like the convenience of a 5 year warranty. Stuff does go bad after 2 years. So yeah it is expensive but every extended warranty I have ever got paid for itself....

Really? You are extremely lucky. Clearly, most people do not have this experience. If they did, the companies would never make a profit and would go out of business (or stop offering them).

I'm not saying Extended Warranties are bad but I don't think you should expect them to pay for themselves. It's great when they do but statistically, they won't.

I just put $1800 in repairs into my camper this year (4yr old unit)... Just in time for me to trade it in ;(.... I think we put about $3000 in non-warranty service into our camper total. (BTW: It wasn't a Forest River unit)

I paid $1,700 for an extended warranty on an Open Range and will be trading it after 3 1/2 years so warranty goes to the trash as non-transferable to a dealer.

Never had a claim, so, it's entirely up to you as to how much money you loose.

This time I'm going FR extended and then Good Sam per an independent repair guy recommendation. He says all warranties won't want to pay much. Sort of like Obama Care. I lost my good health insurance to "progress".

I took the 2nd yr. FR at $150 and then purchased addit. 3 yrs. on the refrigerator and A/C directly from the manufacturers for a total of 5 yrs. on these 2 high ticket items.
I am accepting a known loss (the premium) against the uncertainty of an unknown large loss.

Thanks for the info! Purchased our 29rlws on 1/22 and dealer made no mention of the FR extended warranty. We have had multiple TT in the past 25 years so we knew to join user groups. Saw your information, contacted FR and Deb the Warranty Logistics person was very helpfull ! Check and form in mail 4 hours after seeing your post!
thanks again!
