Extended Warranty - Yes or No??

We bought a new 2011 Shamrock 233S last week and am up in the air on the extended warranty. An additional 12 months for $150.00 seems like a steal to me. Thoughts??

if you'd did a search on this here, you can read hundreds of posts for opinions.
bottom line is that you're correct. it's a steal compared to 3rd party extended warranties and covers more.
not sure why you'd be up in the air about it. it's a bargain. that's about the cost of one hour of time at a RV service shop.

Every Consumer Reports Magazine article regarding extended warranties advises against them. I consider it a fine organization looking out for the consumer. THAT SAID, I BOUGHT THE EXTENDED WARRANTY for our 2012 233S Roo. All the things that can go wrong -- MIGHT. I really feel fortunate to be able to purchase the Roo and for $150 wanted to protect the investment an additional year. The "glass is half full", but sometimes there is a bit of spillage. The 2nd year warranty could clean up the mess.

Geez... Around here it's a full tank of gas in a pickup.

Yes, we had ours in so far once, and I would not have wanted to pay that bill. We have a whole year left in case anything goes wrong. It is well worth the 150.

Hands down. YES ! Like said before, it is a bargain. One hour labor at any RV shop around my area will go from $80 to $120 per hour. It pays on the first visit.
