extra warranty needed?

Hello everybody, we just bought a 2015 2516 Rockwood and noticed we can buy an extended lifetime warranty for $100. It covers frame, suspension,sub floor,exterior sidewall,and cabinet frames. Only good for defects. I know its cheap but not sure it would be really used. Your thoughts?

it's not an extended lifetime warranty.
it's an additional year of the factory warranty and well worth the $100!
unless it's different for FR popups versus their other types of trailers.

if it's truly lifetime for their popups, i'm surprised you're even asking!
you'll definitely be using it. NO RV comes from the factory perfect, even popups.

For the price I'd recommend getting it.

Sound good but parts and freight are only covered for the first 3 years (unless they mean only the cost to shipped the parts is not covered, not 100% clear the way it is written). For $100 it would not be a bad thing to have.

I was offered the same warranty for my A-Frame and took up FR on the offer. I consider it very inexpensive insurance for what it covers.

Absolutely!!!! That's pretty cheap insurance. When I bought my trailer had I not been able to buy the extended warranty it would have been a deal breaker. I always take the extensions on investments like vehicles. It has paid off huge more than once.

all the other FR trailers, that are not popups or A-frames, only get ONE year extra, not 3 years for parts and lifetime for other stuff.
and it costs $150.

consider yourself lucky that they're offering this. i don't think this was available a few years ago.
it might get changed to the same thing for other FR trailers.

Bikendan you should read the warranty. It only covers a few items. It is not a bumper to bumper like the extended 1 year.
