Same is true of any insurance you buy, and in the end that is more of what you are buying.

While it may not be worth it to me, I can see other folks having a different opinion.

I purchased an extended warranty plan when I bought my White Hawk almost two years ago...my first RV. To be honest I did not read it thoroughly and bought it because I wanted to protect my investment. What bothers me the most is that it simply does not cover any water intrusion of any kind, which at least for me, is my worst fear. So fast forward to the present. I am trading the White Hawk in this week and purchasing a Eagle 355MBQS. Although the dealer offered to make the extended warranty whole, thus covering me for five years, I am going to take the cash option of a prorated buy-out on the plan. I will get back $1700 from the $2100 spent. This cash will pay for my 5th wheel hitch and then some.

My dealer is offering a 7-year "extended service plan" for $1500. I'm picking up a 26' JayFeather tomorrow. I paid just about $21000. Around $300/year and this dealer is one of the biggest in California (50 bays).

Any advice??

Congratulations on the new Jay Feather.

Extended warranties have been debated on this forum at least a couple of times. IMO, there has been no definite consensus.
