1. No
2. No
3. Isn't it free for a year? We continue to subscribe. No need for AAA.

Back to No. 1. NO NO NO.

If you have a lender, check with them. If you avoid these over priced offers for a few years you'll save enough to fix any repair several times over. On appliances they often add 15 to 25% to the retail price. What a deal - for the retailers and the company behind them.

When my wife bought her Expedition a couple yeas ago, the dealership offered an extended warranty for around $2500. Later I rec'd offers from some independent outfit. They wanted around $3300 with a 50 or $100 deductible. Curious, I called our credit union. They offer better coverage, no deductible, $1300. And I don't have to buy it until the 3/36 factory warranty is about to expire.

I'm sure many will disagree. P.T. Barnum was right.

We passed on the extended warranty and other dealer offers. No regrets. The coach net coverage is only for the camper. Costs extra for other vehicles. We already have GS road service so it was not needed. If you already have road service just add the rig. I would not be without it for the cost.

Coachnet offer coverage for all vehicles and any utility trailers you may have. Of course, it's a few more bucks. Different prices for different levels of service. In addition to towing, they offer over-the-phone tech advice, but you don't get both. If the tech fails to solve the problem, you'd have to pay for the tow. Good Sam offers similar coverage, I believe.

Maybe AAA has improved its service since we had it. We called twice. Once our transmission failed in Ocean City MD. They had no contractors anywhere near there. Another time our daughter was stranded during a downpour in the D.C. area. There was nothing but busy signals for hours. A local radio show had heard other complaints and found there were three, count'em, three operators for the entire DC/MD/VA metro area.

Welcome to the forum

Definitely pass on the first two items.

There are threads on this forum and others concerning Coachnet and Good Sam.
Try looking at those before you decide about that. You should have a year of free coverage from Jayco on Coachnet.

Does anybody know the difference between the 23rb and the 2014 238rb? We have the later and don't see hardly any others.
2014 238rb

We got the extra warranty. With the warranty we bought we get the full value Back if we don't use it. In our last Tent trailer I had the Charger/ Converter and Furnace go. i had one of the walls start to move with 2 inches of movement. I had the ceiling fan go. the rail for pull out bed broke. So I thought I would get the warranty this time.

Welcome to the forum....I had one year of road side assistance included with my trailer....

I never bought any extra's as some one on here suggested put the money in the bank and you can draw on it if needed. You will likely be farther ahead.

In the last 15 years, 2000 forward, I've NOT purchased X-warranties on five cars/trucks and two campers. I have been out of pocket, for what would have been covered repairs, about $600. Do the math.
