  1. I'm researching Extended Warranty Policies. So far I've looked at Good Sam and America's RV Warranty. Has anyone had experience with America's RV Warranty administrated by Headstart Warranty Group? I'm trying to find real life reviews of their claim service. Does anyone recommend a particular company?
  2. New to the forum and looking for advice on additional 3rd party warranty. My wife and I are getting ready to go FT for a year with our daughter (4.5 yo) and travel all over the US. Yeah...to say we're excited is an understatement! We're extremely fortunate to be able to do this at this age with our daughter and can't wait for her to learn through doing as we travel. We're looking at a 2017 Tiffin Phaeton 40QKH with 9,900 miles on it which means ~1.5 yrs or 26K miles of warranty remaining from Tiffin. Given that we'll be FT for a solid year, likely 15K+ miles over that time, what do y'all think about additional warranty? I've researched a bit here and elsewhere. I've already received a coach only quote from Wholesale Warranty (thanks for the tips!) as well as Star RV quoted through the dealership finance department. Obviously the dealer gets a bit using their preferred warranty company. So if an additional warranty is going to cost $3-4K for 3-4 years of coverage, what do those of you with experience think? I can pocket the cash (in savings) for a rainy day or spend a bit for peace of mind. Any and all advice greatly appreciated!
  3. In the next couple weeks we will be taking delivery of our new 5th wheel. The dealer is pitching us on their extended warranty. I have heard that it is best to look at purchasing an extended warranty after the manufactures warranty expires and to purchase on the open market rather than through the dealer. Any words of wisdom or advise on this subject? Thanks, Kelly
  4. California resident considering Wholesale Warranties – why do they require an address in another state? I would like to hear from California Class C or Class A owners who have a Wholesale Warranties extended service plan. They require an out of CA address, and their explanation is complicated. They say they are not an insurance policy, where Good Sam and American Guardian do business as an insurance company in CA. They offer a competitive package. Just wondering if there is any additional risk with this arrangement, when we do not own any property outside of California. Thanks! Janet and Brian El Sobrante, CA 2017 Thor Chateau, Mercedes
  5. We bought a 2017 316RLS 5th wheel in September of 2016, our second RV in 3 years of fulltiming - first unit was used. As is typical, our new unit has several problems within the first warrantied year - ending in September 2017. Our dealer, LazyDays RV in Loveland, Co has a policy of servicing their new sales (sales prep) first and having warranty and repair customers leave their unit on the lot till they have the free time in their schedule to do the repairs. And would likely not get to our unit till sometime in July, with that not even promised. That would require us renting an apartment, month to month as well as staying in the area longer than intended. I called Highland Ridge, the manufacturer (now acquired by Jayco) and asked if we could get a mobile RV mechanic to do the repairs, and they reluctantly said that could be done if the dealer, LazyDays, would authorize the mechanic as a dealer and all work and parts would be submitted through the dealer. The dealer said they would not do that, as they had "no motivation" to have competing dealer/repairmen, and they would still be ultimately liable for the repairs. At this point, we are looking at paying for the repairs ourselves. Unless we can come up with some other solution. I have been pretty persistent with both the dealer and HR, but some of these repairs need to be done soon. Any creative ideas out there on how to get timely warranty work done? Highland Ridge will only accept warranty work through authorized dealers And I pass on to other full timers that your warranty on a new vehicle is worthless unless you have a second home to live in near the dealer. Any ideas out there on resolving this situation, other than forgetting the warranty and paying for the work ourselves?
