FR# need extended warranty

Ok guys!
I just purchased a new 2014 forest river FR-3 and the dealer wants to sell me an extended warranty for my motor home for 6 years, covers about anything, and with a $200 deductible for each visit, for the price of $2006.
My question is does anyone out there know of a good place to buy an extended warranty policy for a better price? I only have a couple of days left to make up my mind to purchase this at this price or it goes up in price
Thanks
Larry

Never had one, never needed it since 1972. I usually go 4 years and out.

Had one with my previous motorhome, paid approx. $2100.00....had it for 5 years and never used it. I decided not to buy it with the FR 3.

We believe in extended warranties. Had a blow out in our last MH. Took out all the basements behind rear tire along with a high wiring harness and things I can't even begin to tell you. Claim: over 10 grand. I paid a $500 deductible.
That was Good Sam. For this new MHZ I have, purchased warranty at dealer. Cost approximately $25 month vs approximately $40 for GS. Course I pray we never have to use it.

hope that neither one of us has to use it but good to have just in case. Enjoy your travels and maybe our paths will cross.

Don't take the salespersons word for it. See what "Covers almost everything" really covers. More important see what it won't cover. Then go shop the Good Sam Warranty. Many companies go out of business annually and take your money with them..I don't buy any extended warranties...

Think I may put that $2000 in a jar and save IT for emer repairs, in case I need it in the future, unless I find some other policy out there that sounds good.
