Have you hard about additional year Warranty for $100

I was told by a sales person that Forest River offer new owners with an additional year bumper to bumper for $100. I have been researching that statement and all I have heard is it is an offer that you work directly with Forest River after you buy the trailer.

Has anyone else heard about this lately?

Iggy,
I purchased the additional 1 year warranty for my 8315SS TT back in '06. It was indeed $100. It worked out well for me as there were a few issues taken care of after the first year was up. It's my understanding that the new price is $150. It's an extension of the factory 1 year hitch-to-bumper warranty and a good deal.

BTW, my dealer FAILED to mention the extra 1 year warranty when I purchased the TT, so I called FR myself. They mailed the paperwork to me. I filled in the information and mailed it back with a $100 check.
Most dealers are reluctant to tell the customer about this good deal, because they want to sell you an aftermarket warranty, which they make BIG MONEY off of.

My dealer actually paid it for me as part of the deal. Even if they don't, it is worth it. The form should be included in the paperwork you receive when you get the trailer.

The additional year warranty now costs $150. It's the cheapest insurance you can buy! The application, along with the cheque must be sent within 10 days of the purchase of your RV. Then you have to be patient...I sent ours in on March 1, 2010 and just received confirmation from Forest River date July 7, 2010.

Thanks everyone for the confirmation on the deal and costs.
Nice to know it has to be sent in with 10 days of purchase.

Iggy,
I sent my paperwork in 4 weeks after delivery. FR said, "No Problem."

My dealer never mentioned the extended warranty when I purchased my trailer. I never heard of it until I read about it on this forum, so I requested the warranty from FR after I received my trailer back from the delamination repair. FR emailed me the form, I filled it out and sent it back. They gave me the extended warranty, FREE!
