Looking to buy a new Wildwood

I'm looking to purchase a new Wildwood 402qbq. Does anyone have this trailer? Searched the site but have not seen anything negative about this trailer so if someone has some reason not to spend a small fortune could you please let me know.

Also is it worth buying the extended warranty on the trailer?

Thanks for your help

Yes they are offering a 5 year bumper to bumper warranty for 100 per month.

plenty of Wildwoods have had major exterior wall cracking issues. Lots of them has to go back to factory for full wall replacement. We have a friend with a 2014 with cracks on both sides. New models are still doing it. Not everyone experiences it, but it is happening. Search for "Wildwood 5th wheel wall crack" will find you reading material.

Lot of money for extended warranty and many times they are not worth the paper they are written on. Later RJD

Wildwood Quality

My 2014 Wildwood has been excellent except that if I were to buy another, I would replace both wheels and tires with good quality U.S. made products. We've had 3 water pumps in the rig, but that isn't Forest River. Is Sureflow.

Cracks in what type of wall? Exterior fiberglass? I searched and didn't come up with any wall issues with Wildwood.

Might want to wait a while and see if Forest River is going to offer 3 year structural warranty. Keystone and Heartland have announced they will be offering this warranty on 2018 models.

I've got friends that have bought extended warranties and they are usually around $10 per month on a 10-15 year note for a 4-5 year.

I meant whose warranty.
Most 3rd party warranties don't cover the expensive stuff, like delamination and roof leaks.
