My son is buying a Puma travel trailer and it's made by Forest River. I wonder if they have a second year warranty

That is great information about the warranty. I declined the extended warranty cause there is such a markup on them and was gonna get one from a 3rd party but now I dont have to! Or at least, not right now..Thanks for sharing!!!

My issue is that I felt I was treated so unfairly on service by my dealer, Fun Town, that I am not sure I would want to take my camper back to them for service. If I am not able to get another dealer to do the warranty work, then even though I purchased the extra year of warranty I feel like I have no warranty. I guess if something big come up, I would just twist my own arm and make myself take the camper to Fun Town for service, but I am really not sure I trust to guys.

I called FR and asked them to find a dealer to help me, they arranged for two different ones. I never had to go back to the selling dealer. But the latest thing now is that dealers will not work on any units they didn't sell they even put signs out stating that. But FR still has some pull with the dealers, I'm sure this new move, during the winter will hurt some of these dealers and some are smart enough to realize that. I talked to one of the head cheeses from FR last year about this. He said he would call the dealer for me, (well I said right to myself) well about a month later I got a letter from that dealer with an apologize attached for there put off and there terrible repair work, I say get a hold of FR,,,,

Thank you for that information.

The factory did a very poor job sealing the corners of my roof. Fun Town did a good job at going back and correcting that. However, they also pealed off the sealant on the front of the roof and replaced it. Actually, it seemed that the factory did a very good job sealing that area. However, Fun Town did a very poor job sealing that area.

So, I ended up not as well off as I was when Fun Town started.

I have a tub of Dicor so I can go fix it up my self once it is less than 100 degrees outside. But, this plus the very poor ability of Fun Town to return a phone call or give a status of a repair job makes me want to be very careful going back there.

With all the issues the second year warranty is good but after that your on your own most camper components have a two year warranty (ac heater fridge ) look in your paper work most components have warranty cards that should be filled out. My second year warranty dose not cover any defects in cushions trim moldings ect ect only major components. I however did buy an extended warranty as like I did with our fith wheel camper in 06 and it paid for itself the second year saving me over 6 grand worth of repairs. Just like an automobile after the factory warranty is up your on your own then when it brakes and it will I will be covered. My 7 year warranty cost me 1.967 from our dealer . Got a quote from another extended warranty company and two years less coverage only 575 cheaper. The money we all spend to buy and maintain these rolling summer homes an aftermarket extended warranty is well worth the money.
