The warrenty I purchased from FR was 100 bucks .. and covers flooring cabinatry dellamination of the sides and the roof. It is a none transferable lifetime warrenty for the origional owner ... i may have gotten the lifetime due to the timing of the purchase .. March 2011 ... when these trailers were first introduced.

The real question about insurance to my mind is how much of the payment go to cover possible future repairs and how much goes to the sales commission. Extended warranties of almost all types have hefty sales commissions and therefore substantially overprice the actual benefit expected under the policy. One indicator of high prices on policies the auto dealers sell is the willingness of the finance guy to cut the price if you say "no" a few times. Nevertheless, the policy can be worthwhile if you are planning to use the trailer more often and rougher than average. For an average weekender, camping once once or twice a month, I wouldn't bother.

Hmm...

So I get a letter in the mail today from the RV dealer.
In it, they are offering me an extended warranty for 6 years for $2,575 (plus GST).
There is a $50 deductible (waived if I take the unit to the original dealer) and if I make no claims in those 6 years, I get $1,950 refunded.

Its like any insurance policy, there are winners and there are losers. The people who sell the warranties win more than they lose, or they wouldn't be in business. This means that there are more buyers on the losing side than on the winning side. So you're playing the laws-of-averages, which say you probably won't get your money's worth. If you read through all your warranties on your major components, you will find that most cover their product for at least 2 years, some even longer. So I fix the simple things myself, and will use the dealer for things I can't handle, which hasn't happened yet.

Wow that is too much $$$, I got a similar deal with my last car for 7 years bumper to bumper for $1800, I had no claim for 6 years but in the last year I had over 10k of repairs and my car was 4x the cost of an A-Frame.

My current rig warranty is the cost of the difference of the no claim plus I got tire/rim hazard insurance, both for 7 years.

Scam...no deal...lol

I found out about it too late.
Our dealer didn't offer it to us, so this is the first we'd heard about a 2nd year warranty. We called Rockwood and they sent the form to us. We've gone over the stated 10 day limit, but they assured us we have 30 days. I'm very glad we joined this group!
