to clarify, the FR 2nd year factory warranty is only available on towables and only available on original FR brands and Palomino.

it is not available for the newer FR acquisitions: Dynamax, Prime Time, Shasta, Viking, Coachmen. Prime Time does have their own 2 yr. warranty on just their Sanibel products.

Bought the extended warranty from the dealer, was better and cheaper than FR. I bought it for the life of the loan +1. 5 years. I figure bout then I might want a new trailer.

How could an extended warranty/service contract be lower then the $150 from Forest River for the second year? When I looked into one it was way to much money and I couldn't find one that covers frames or delamination, which are the expensive things to fix. I can afford to replace the ACs or other appliances and it seem that was about all that the Good Sam policy covered.

By being free. I don't know if it covers frame or delam, but since the dealer offered it as part of a "Opening day of our big RV show" promotion, I'm gonna take it.

We bought the FR 2nd yr for $150.00. Delam and frame could be expensive, not sure if those other extended would cover those. Minor stuff I can take care of tho FR would and does cover that cost too.

some things are cheaper to fix yourself than what the fuel costs to tow it to the dealer

My one year is up in May, can you purchase the second year thru FR only from day one or anytime you like? At $150 that is definitely worth the buck if you ask me!

FR usually allows for a month or two late, after the purchase but i don't know about a whole year late.
you can give it a try but i doubt that they will, this late in the game.

I'll give it a try and see what happens. The dealer didn't even offer an extended warranty to me when I purchased the trailer!

that's why forums like this one, are important for people to join BEFORE they purchase a RV.
