EasyCare Warranty

Bought one with my 2015 Roo23IKSS but thinking of getting rid of it before my base warranty expires on 4-10-2016, just feel I would be ok with out it.

Has anyone bought an extended warranty? Are they really worth it? Do major things really go wrong after 1-2 years? I bought a 2012 Shasta but had it a year and nothing major went wrong before we traded it for my Roo23IKSS, now have a factory warranty until 4-2016 then have the EasyCare.

I have really no issues with the Roo but a few simple things which I can fix myself however bringing to the dealer 300 miles away to have them fix it all and do a once over B4 factory warranty goes out, just not sure the ext warranty is worth it for me and if I cancel now I can get 100% of that cost back.

i'm not a fan of 3rd party extended warranties, for new purchases.
maybe on a used unit that has no factory warranty.

nearly all the RV 3rd party extended warranties i've read posts about, state that they don't really cover any of the really expensive stuff, like delamination.

It is interesting that RV mfg's only give you a 12 year warranty and most issues occur after that, but the fact that extended warranties barely cover stuff leads me to believe buying new and getting a warranty is not worth it.

Going forward I will only buy used to get what I want at the best deal and have someone else absorb most of the % loss in the first 1-3 years. I think this is the last New RV I ever buy, love camping just not spending all that money to deal with all the inconvenience of getting it all fixed in a few months when everyone is doing the same thing

I decided to purchase the additional 1 year factory warranty for around $100 I think and had a couple of issues pop up after my one year from the factory expired. The dealer said the two items weren't covered because one of them was the create-a-breeze fan. The fan is an aftermarket part and not covered under the factory warranty. The warranty is really for major issues with the trailer, so I wouldn't get it.

Not purchasing the second-year warranty from Forest River is just plain craziness. I paid $150.00 for an additional year of the standard manufacturer warranty for my 2016 Windjammer. I hope I don't have to use it, but to turn down such a great offer is ludicrous.

I have never bought extended warranty, service contracts, rust proofing yada yada.

Until I owned an rv.
This is a poorly made house on four wheels, bouncing up and down the road.

I was looking for the paperwork.
Don't remember how long or how much!! ??

Warranty.......never cared about them.
Just bought a 23ws in Michigan and I live in Maine. We use that camper about 30 days in a year and it's covered during the winter.
I would be very surprised if something would happen to it in the next 2 years.

Depends on what you consider a Lot for 7 years it was 1600? I am just not sure what they will give me a hard time with if I ever need it and I would rather get that $ back in full as I have until 4-10-2015 to cancel it for a full refund.
