We got one since this was our first trailer. So far, only major problem we had was when the dealer winterized.dewinterized last year/this spring, one of the valves cracked & we had a fair amount of water that flooded under sink (unbeknown to us until we retreated inside for the evening & DW stepped on a squishy rug) but the dealer is going to take care of everything. But, the Jayco warranty has covered a bunch of minor, cosmetic stuff. And we've used it a fair amount since we bought it in 8/12. I guess it would depend on how you plan to use it and how hard you are on your stuff, lol! That and how often you're going to use it, what conditions you're going to subject it to, etc. For us, a site at a nice campground with water & electric only is roughing it. So, we will most likely pass next time, as, so far, Jayco's product has proven superior and they stand behind their factory warranty.

We passes on it. Hoping the two year standard warranty will suffice. And isn't the roof standard warranty longer than two years?

We dont buy much of anything new, so extended warrantys really do not apply to us. I have learned that extended warranties RARELY pay off. I was a mechanic for years at a local GM dealer, and the amount of stuff the warranty companies decline is crazy. Farther more, most of the time, the deductable at the time of the claim would have covered a non-warranty repair. The price you pay vs. the amount you are able to claim are two far apart. You would be better off just setting aside the money it would cost to purchase the warranty and if 7 years down the road, something happens that your insurance doesn't cover, you can use the money you saved by not purchasing the warranty.

Never bought an extended warranty for a camper, but did buy it for 4 cars. On only one of those cars, a VW Passat, did it pay for itself. The rest were a waste of money. Lesson learned: Don't buy a VW.
