New RV Extended Warranty

I just wanted to get everyone's opinions regarding extended warranties. We did get it for ours. 7 year coverage.

We never get one for our campers. Jayco warranty is for two years and most anything that is going to go wrong happens in those first two years and the dealer and Jayco take care of the problem. Maybe we have been lucky so far, but we haven't had anything major that was expensive to repair outside of the two year warranty period.

If we had a motor home, I might think differently. They are vulnerable to major problems that are very expensive to repair. You have to be extremely careful with extended warranties and make certain that all claims follow their steps for reimbursement because it is my opinion that they will do everything possible to avoid paying a claim.

We didn't get the extended warranty either for the same reason.

Never have gotten an extended warranty for the same reasons also. Am on my third Jayco and the God's must be with me because I have never had to replace anything other than light bulbs, etc. Did have major work done on this my third unit, but it all was corrected within our first three trips. We use ours a lot so we will see.

Passed on it. I figure any repairs after the regular warranty are done that would be covered will never add up to what I would have paid for the extended warranty so it is not worth it. (At least for me)

We got one for our new X20E last year but haven't had any issues yet. I would probably pass on it next time.

We did not get it either. I also declined any paint or rust protection that the dealer had offered.

No extended warranty for us either, we were told at the time of sale that we could purchase it after our Jayco 2 yr standard warranty ran out if we wished (at a premium of course), but like many others here, I don't think we will get it...

Some would say it's a gamble, but I've never bought an extended warranty on anything, and have never wished I had. Lucky I guess, knocking on wood as we speak...
