This dealer is trying to sell you a third party warranty that they get a commission on.
Without you naming the dealer, it's hard to comment much more.
Just stating "RV Sales and Service Center", doesn't say much.
I would also contact FR and inform them of what this dealer said.
It was Mound View RV in Belmont, WI
Yes you are right. She came right out to say they make no money on Extended Warranty work. Unfortunately it is the closest one to us for approximately 60 miles.

Hi. Picking up my 179 tomorrow. Yesterday the dealer emailed me all of the extended warranty options. Totals $5570 Cdn. Most cover 6 years.
I won't be getting any of these because of cost and the last minute information.
Will contact FR next week.

Yeah crazy pricing. I hear FR 1 more year of warranty is like 200.00. But you need to get ahold of them .
Good luck with your new toy.

I just called them last week. They sent me a form, and I mailed it back on Monday, 30 days out from the date of purchase. The cost was 250 for the second year, on my cc cottage. I then decided to self insure after hat, unless I find numerous things in the first year, at which time depending on what they are either buy the route 66, or trade it off. But I've had maybe 1,000 maybe 2K into repairs overall on 3 trailers in 11 years. I can put that away, which would basically be the price of a 6 year warranty, less of course any deductible, so I think I'm better served by a service account, more than an extended warranty that I may, or may not have to fight with the servicer of the contract.

We will be picking up a new Coachmen trailer on Monday. I'll have to ask our sales person about the FR extended warranty. I'm assuming since Coachmen is a part of FR, they offer this?

Yeah, I think bank it pray and enjoy. If crap happens so be it, at what the dealer wants me to pay no thanks. FR 2nd yr would be worth it for reasonable $$$
