Forest River Extended Warranty

Info for all the new purchasers of Forest River campers. If you want the 2nd year extended warranty you have to act fast. I guess Forest River is really adhering to the 10 day limit on signing up for extended warranty.

Just bought the my camper on Sept 2, less than a week ago, but somehow Forest Rivers system says I bought it on August 22 and that they will not give me the extended warranty. Really makes me feel good about buying from them if they wont extend the buying time period a week for a mistske the dealer or they made. I am guessing they don't think there will last that 2nd year.

Who is telling you this, the dealer or FR?

There are MANY reports here of folks being able to purchase the 2nd year after the 10 day period.

Did you speak with FR directly?

Yes, I talked directly with Forest River.

Also the price has gone up to $250, not that it matters for me now.

I just received my signed two warranty form back from Forest River. I sent in sixty days after purchase with my check for $150. The signed form came right back with no problems. It says right on the form you have ninety days

Can you post a pic or a pdf of the form you have? The one we have here still says 10 days although by many reports that doesn't seem to be strictly enforced.

I'm curious to know if it's been changed.

Go to the "NEWS" link on the FROG home page, Forest River Owners Group - The official owner's group of Forest River RV, manufacturer of world-class recreational vehicles..

The second item on the page is about the Forest River extended warranty, including links to the pricing sheet and the registration form. Prices range from $150 to $250 depending on the make of your RV. The window to sign up is 90 days from purchase.

Some but not all towable brands are included in the program. Motorized units are not included.

You may have an older forum. I'd send in as FR repep says good to send in up to 90 day after purchase. A lot of folks here have sent in way after the 10 days and had no issues. Later RJD

I guess the Forest River Warranty department in Indiana does not know there own policies, because they are the ones that told me I only had ten days after purchase in several emails. I am not sure if it is ten business or ten calendar days either, they could not answer that question.

The orginal point of my post was to warn new buyers that the information that they find online or from the dealer may not be true and to verfiy from the manufacure as to what there policies are. I figured I had more than ten days after reading all of the old posts, but unless they are just singling me out for some reason, they are sticking to the ten days.

You can go to the site Bob Byrne suggested in Post #6 for the 90 days from purchase version if you choose. Note the price did not increase. Was always $250 for 5ers and $150 for TT's.

FYI if you didn't realize it, the form/application IS the actual extended warranty in case you were wondering what it covers. You sign and send into FR and they will send it back countersigned or stamped for your records.
