Why wouldn't FR require a dealer to inform the buyer of a 2n year warranty? Seems awfully shady to me to run a business, offer a premium service to a customer, yet not inform them of it.

I felt I had a good deal when we purchased our Georgetown last year. I went with a Route 66 extended warranty for the motorhome and will go with the Ford F53 chassis coverage for the next five years.
What I am getting at is do what gives you piece of mind. If the 36ckts fulfills your wishes in an RV then buy piece of mind with the Forest River 2nd year at a decent $150. It will get more complicated the next year after the second when you have to decide what to do.Appliances and A/c concern me most.
I hope the actual coverage is as good when needed as it sounded upon purchase. Like looking at food through a display window!!!
Till then enjoy the trailer. It looks huge and beautiful in the ad.

I was never told about a second warranty for $150.00. Maybe they want you to spent more than $145,000🌴

Since you asked - If you were happy with your deal before finding out about the 2nd year warranty I would recommend paying the $150 and let it go. I find it easy to start second guessing my choices so I rather not start.

From what your posts it sounds like you have a really nice unit.

Thats what out dealer told us that it was between Forest River & Us, that they make nothing on it & You pay Forest River directly. If that is the only issue I would not worry too muh about it.................

Forest River is an outstanding company with equally good people.

In my case, the dealer - who FR does not control - has been less than desirable.

You bought a great product from a very reputable manufacturer. Pay for the warranty, work with your dealer when you have to, and know that FR will stand behind their products.

Regarding the air ride - it is well worth it, but you may not fully appreciate it until you tow the trailer for a while without it.

If it was the trailer you want and you like it just pay the extra $250, Cedar Creek is more. I actually would have prefered white.

Years ago we bought the 1 year extended warranty thru forest river at the purchasing dealership for 100.00 dollars for our flagstaff.
We also have a CC 36ckts on order, is the extended 1 year warranty from the dealership , or directly from F.R. and does anyone know the price, and is there a link to the warranty to print it out.

I can't find it on the above link.

Does anyone know if a second year warranty is available for a CC 2013 Sliverback? I printed the forms online, and there is no mention of the Sliverback, so I'm just curious...we pick up our new Sliverback next week and it doesn't sound like its something the dealer will mention.
