Interstate Star RV Extended Warranty

I will be picking up my new Rockwood pop up camper next weekend and was told by the RV place I could get an extended warranty from Interstate Star RV if I wanted it. This is the first camper for us, so don't know if it's worth having or not. Can anyone advise? Thank you very much.

Get a 1 year extended warranty direct from Forest River. Just do a search on the forum for "extended warranty form".

those are warranties offered by private companies. I heard more than once of a person filing a claim later on only to find the company had gone bankrupt...
The FR extended warranty is by FAR the best there is.

Thank you very much for your replies. I am glad I asked before signing up for this. I will be looking for the information to contact Forest River when I pick up my camper next weekend.

The FR extended warranty is lifetime on certian components for $100. My dealer offered it to me. Didn't even try to offer a third party. The lifetime is only for pop ups, not to be confused with one year offered for TT or 5ers. Worth the $100. If your dealer doesn't know anything about it, call Forrest River and they will send you the form. It is through them and has nothing to do with the dealer. Don't be surprised if your dealer doesn't know anything about it either because they don't make any money on it.

I emailed my dealer yesterday and you are right, they didn't know anything about it. I will need to call Forest River it sounds like.

Not suprised. They want you to buy their third party where they make some money. The FR warranty doesn't cover near as much as a third party one. I just didn't feel I needed one on a pop up. I think I talked to Sam in the warranty department and he was very nice and explained what it covered and what it didn't. Would think they could email or fax the form. Good luck.
