Which is curious since all RV warranties exclude damage from roof leaks. A few rolls of properly applied Eternabond would be far cheaper and more effective insurance than an extended warranty for roof leaks.

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.

We bought one on our 2011 365 BHS. One of the biggest reasons is we leave it permantantly parked and have a 30' deck on one side making it quite a pain to get in and out. For the next 7 years I'm not only covered bumper to bumper but in the event I need anything repaired or replaced for $50 they come right to my site and do it. Ours even includes coverage for the additional TV's and electronics we've added. Think it figured up to an additional $30 a month on the loan and figured it was worth the peace of mind. At least to us it was. I'm pretty certain within the next 7years I will use it at least a few times and if not, then they just made a couple grand off me for nothing.

Did not purchase it either. We are enjoying our third year and still no out of pocket expenses. Had a problem with the sub woofer on the stereo but the 2 year warranty took care of that.

Last month a friend's transmission failed due to water getting into it. Happily, he had the nearly two thousand dollar warranty. The shop said the water came from a failed seal. Guess what one of the excluded items in his warranty was? 'Nuf said. Well, almost. If he had not bought the warranty he'd have had a good chunk of the payment for the transmission repair.
