From what I've read on here- it does NOT sound like it.

the second year FR warranty is only available on towables, not motorhomes.
and not the newer FR acquisitions, PrimeTime, Shasta, Dynamax, Coachmen, Viking.

Thanks. Looks the extended warranty is the only option. What a dilemma. To extended warranty or not?

By any chance is your new trailer model 2050? I am looking at buying one soon.
Any info would be appreciated...
Thanks

Sure am glad I read this thread. Going to close the deal on my new Rockwood Friday, and I'm sure the dealer will try to get me to buy that expensive extended warranty.

My dealer, specifically the finance guy, spent 10 minutes going over that $150 warranty for my 23SS and everything it covered. He basically implied it was a waste of money, because it only covered things that failed due to improper workmanship (vs user error or accidents). Also, half the the things on the last had a 2+ year warranty on them already. Just one example, but why buy a 1 year warranty extension for a floor that has a lifetime warranty?

What I am considering applying that money to instead is the Easycare (Total Care) plan, which covers roadside assistance, towing reimbursement, trip interruption insurance, slide out coverage, etc. That costs closer to $2K, and is limited to 84 months of coverage.

Not to thread hijack, but has anyone gone with that route and are glad they did?

I checked into something like the easycare. I found out that I could just add $33 a year to my AAA membership and it will cover everything you just mentioned above. The dilemma I am in seems to be the high expense of the ext warranty but they the kicker is IF you have something go wrong, then they have these high deductibles. Really the ext warranty is only going to cover a major issue anything under $1000 you are going to have to pay for. Now they do have a version with a $500 deduc but of course that costs even more.

Yeah, damned if you do, damned if you don't when it comes to these extended warranties.

The brochure tries to sell you by saying an inverter replacement is $2,200, a refrigerator is $2,100, water heater is $1,390. The impossible question is how likely are these to fail within the first 7 years? Is spending $2K, plus $1K deductible, worth covering a $2K fridge?

Math like that may just talk me out of getting this lol

Good tip on AAA, I'll have to call them to discuss adding that.

I contacted wholesalewarranties.com from a recommendation of another member Iggy. They were 1/3 the cost of Xtraride. Company they were using is called Protrek? I read the fine print and it seemed to be close on coverage. Also spoke live to the guy at WW and he seemed legit.
