The warranty companies don't make money paying out claims.. Jaycos 2 year warranty is long enough to weed out any problems. Put the money you would spend on the warranty in the bank to cover future work..you will find your $$$ ahead doing that.

I've saved thousands over the years by not paying for extended warranties for ANYTHING.

Check the fine print carefully. Some warranties state you need to get everything in your trailer serviced by a dealer twice a year, or your coverage is void. Just add up the cost of having a dealer service the fridge, hot water tank, furnace, seals, slides etc.

Warranty companies are in the business of making money, not paying out money, so they will come up with any excuse not to pay. They are an expensive scam in my opinion. You are better off putting the money you would have paid in a savings account set up for possible future repairs.

I did buy the extended warranty on our Northern Lite camper. I have to admit i was beginning to think it was a mistake until the electric Happi-jacks seized up due to salt mist ingestion from winter travel on our Canadian highways. The jacks were covered by the warranty (3200.00 canadian). Definately worth it there. We did declined the offer for the Jayflight tho.

Good responses. I am closing on our 32BHDS in two days. They offered the extended warranty but my first question is always "can I wait until the standard warranty runs out and then buy it". Of course this is always the case in my experience. So my strategy is if it hasn't had any problems after two years don't do it. If it has had some systems fail (like slide out mechanisms) then I will consider it.

Warranties are like everything else, different prices and different terms. Shop before you buy. My credit union offers a warranty with no deductibles at half the price of our car dealer and almost a third the price of the company that started mailing and phoning me warning that my warranty was about to expire on DW's brand new SUV. Don't know if they will cover an RV but I'll check if I feel the need.
