Just an FYI... Although Coachmen is under the Forest River umbrella, they do not offer the second year warranty... Which I think is kinda bush league.

Same for Prime Time. I let them know what I thought once I found out that they didn't offer it, but other Forest River products did.

prime time actually does offer it on the crusaders.....i was kinda miffed when i tried to get it as well....but in the end its the decision of each brand as to what they offer and cover...it is what it is...forest river is the parent company....they dont run the individual brands....

Are you sure about the warranty on Crusaders??? We already bought the extended warranty last year when we bought ours and our one year was up 9/27....

What do you do after the two year warranty expires

My husband and I are looking at a 2015 Forest River Cherokee Grey Wolf 26dbh. The dealer said the extended warranty would be about $1600 for 7 years. If we were to forgo this warranty and get the extended warranty through Forest River, do they offer an extended warranty at the end of the two years? Are there other options for extended warranties at the end of the two years? This is all new to me.

Get the 2 year for 150.00, Then if you still need the 7 year you lose 2 years because of the FR warranty. So you really get 5 years for the price of 7 years. Also see what the diff. will be if you bought it now or in 2 years sometimes they charge more if you do not get it when it is brand new. Check the figures. I'm out of my 2 year but bought it when I got the unit. One repair I had after the FR 2 year and it has been half paid for already.

Agree. Most of the issues will crop up the first year anyway. Check your appliance documentation that came with your trailer. You might just find that they have their own 2 year warranty as I discovered with mine. After that it's a gamble, to break even, you'll need $1600 worth of repairs to happen. I think odds are in the "insurance company's" favor. Just my two cents FWIW...

I'm hoping to pick up our new unit tomorrow, I'm glad I found this thread. I'll be adding the 2nd year for sure. The rest, I'll handle myself.

I am picking up my new Forester MH on Thursday. Of course after reading the forum I asked about 2nd year warranty for $150. I was told by the first person that she didn't know anything about that. I would like to initiate a call to FR to get a form coming my direction. Is it okay to call the numbers above even though they do not cover the Forester line?
Looking at the FR web site there isn't a number to be found to start out with!

Many thanks.
