FR additional 1yr warranty.

I am picking up the trailer on Saturday.
My dealer wants $300 + HST(13%) for the FR extended warranty.

Does this seem reasonable?

I thought other threads quoted $150..?

I paid $150 US with no GST on my trailer warranty when I bought it; once again on a towable.

there should be a form in the paper work/owners manual package. our dealer took ours out and tried to sell me a very expensive extended warranty. call over to FR and get the price. we paid 150.00 for ours and did it directly with FR. after you find out lets know.

Thanks for the replies =]

But, I just answered my question; I called Rhonda at FR from a number I found on a post here.

I can purchase it directly through FR for a cost of $150 USD.

The amount quoted by my dealer of $339, was an attempt to rip me off.

I am never surprised, but always disappointed, at the amount of greedy people in the world =<(

These dealers should be reported to Forest River. I bet Forest River has no idea that the dealers are making money on the factory warranty.

I think your dealer is trying to pull a fast one...

Dealers are not involved in that 2nd year FR warranty.

Our dealer in Orono, Ontario, had a form in our info pack - you simply need to fill it out, fax it direct to Forest River, indicate you wish to pay by credit card, a nice lady will call you to get your info. $150USD no tax, for a Shamrock 19 - it may be a different for your model.

You will receive by mail a confirmation.

Has to happen within 10 days of taking delivery.

Good luck

its amazing how they will try to nickle and dime us not realizing it will cost them a future sale. for 189.00 the just lost a lot of credibility.
I agree with mtnguy- let FR know after you take delivery.

You should share the name of that shady dealer.... once you have confirmed he was indeed selling your the $150USD FR 2nd year warranty. He may have been trying to sell you some other warranty

No, he already tried to sell us the 'other extended warranties', totalling over $2000.oo.
This e-mail from him was in reply to mine, saying I was going to opt for the FR 1yr extended warranty, instead. (that was not offered btw.)

This was him asking if we wanted to add the $300.oo +HST ($39.oo) for the additional one year warranty, to our financing.

Don't worry, when I talk to FR next week to register for this, I will tell them, and possibly forward the e-mail also. If they piss me off any more, I definitely will.

It is from Mckenzie Trailers in Gormley Ont.
