it doesn't and the only thing the two industries have in common, are that they have places that sell things on wheels. other than that, they are very different.
the RV dealers don't have the same relationship with the manufacturer, like the Auto dealers do.
they are not franchised nor can the RV manufacturer force them to do warranty work on units that they didn't sell. the manufacturer cannot force them to sell the second year warranty, they can only request that.
RV dealers often have the freedom to add or drop different brands whenever they want to.
Ahh! I see now. Thank you for bringing me to understanding.
Here's a thought then, take out the $150 fee and just offer every NEW owner 2 years. (or add it to the price of the unit, lowering the fee given every one will be enrolled, thus higher % of participants). This gives FR a nice solid feel toward its product maybe a good selling point for its dealers too..
FR offers not 1 but 2 years on its TT!
I just dont like hearing that people are getting screwed from 'salesman' trying to pawn off a third party warranty when it's not needed for the first (2) years.
Again, just conversation. The folks I purchased by RV at were respectful, caring, and offered everything I wanted and more. I bought mine right from an RV show hours after it opened. Great experience.
I then went to the dealership days later with my agreed trade-in TT and price and was handed my keys after paperwork was completed. Then I got the packet Forest River provides along with a pre-filled out 2nd year warranty from FR.
I highly suggest anyone looking for an RV on the east coat to use this dealership (Escape RV). Mind you this is my third TT.
