Got it! Even though I thought I could handle most repairs myself, my wife wanted us to have it. Even though I could have talked her out of us getting it, I knew it gave her peace of mind and she deserves that more than I could tell you. I respectfully went along with her decision on this. We don't buy extended warranties on anything.
Our friends are at the end of their regular warranty on a new 5er they bought. They have had four windows replaced, slide mechanism and a host of other problems that have cropped up dealt with by Northland. They make great trailers and our friends say the company has been good. They have a delam area that the company claims won't be a problem. If this turns into a problem out of warranty I can potentially see a extended warranty being useful in a situation where the company refuses to deal with it.
The way it was explained to us is if you don't use it, the cost will be a 100 dollars a year over the 5 years. You get 2 grand back so if things go wrong in years 3-7 you have to make a judgement call on wether you should use it and loose the 2 grand or fix it yourself. You could also choose to spend it to warranty your trailer for an additional four years if you wanted which would than more than double that yearly cost mentioned earlier.
