From my experience, extended warrant has ALWAYS more than paid for itself. Pricey but I would do it again. However, didn't include in purchase price as didn't want to pay interest after warranty, 7 years, is gone.

They also offer a money back option on the warranty, for if I remember correctly another 200, if you don't use it you get your money back( except the 200).

But that being said if you use it for anything minor, it still counts as being used.

My biggest concern is that I want to park the rig, build a deck and not move it unless something major happens. But I Also realize that most major problems happen in he first year, or as most of us refer to it as getting the bugs out, so really torn here...

The first year warranty with coachman states that they cover going out to a site as well, but I think it's only if the trailer can not be brought in, not if the customer doesn't want to move it..

Not really sure on that one...

Will have to do more reading then make the decision...

Buy the warranty

I hope you have better luck than we have had with our TT.
The Coachman Freedom Express TT's may look nice however as a current owner of a 2012 292 BHDS I can tell you that QUALITY is NOT built in.I have had nothing but problems with mine since the first trip.
Buy the warranty!!

It tells you alot about Coachmen when you can't get the second year warranty from FR.

Usually, these low price lines are rife with problems, as they are entry level. You'd think that it would be a smart business move to make entry units higher quality so people would not run from RVing.

Congratulations and good luck tomorrow. We have had our 295RLDS since May and have had no problems whatsoever.

Anybody know what size screws are needed to attach the toilet paper holder and towel ring to the walls? I'm guessing 3/4" or so for length, Mayberry size 10...

Souls I use some sort of anchor?

Wish I could remember for sure, but that sounds about right. I know on the 295, the space between the walls, where I mounted the tp holder, was generous. The holder came with a plastic molly type anchors.
