Skip the Good Sams warrantee. Bought a new trailer 2 years ago. Last year had an unusual separation on the seam at the bottom of the truck overhang on our 5vr. Determined to be due to Crossroads not putting wood in the channels of the trailer chassis, thereby snapping lugs that were put through metal to metal, no wood in between.

Crossroads hasn't agreed to cover it because at the first report of the issue, I was 5 months past the 1 year coverage. I have Good Sams, so I thought it would be covered through them. NOPE! Had 2 certified letters explaining that their inspector determined the damage was caused due to road bounce and in their contract, clause 11, bowed walls and ceilings, it was rejected. I questioned this because of physics, makes no sense. The responded they had a 3rd party also determine the same thing. But refused to send me either inspection report, name either inspector, or tell me their experience. Not ending here, but have heard others who have purchased other plans that seemed to be more responsive.

I bought an extended warranty for my 2013 CR STR 32RL when we bought it new. The model 5th wheel we bought has a Schwintek slide system for all three slides on the trailer. The extended warranty just paid for itself with the last slide repair/replacement that ran close to $2K to fix the kitchen side slide.

So those that blow off an extended warranty as useless, that is $50 out of pocket for a co-pay was cheap! I was well worth the investment in having an extended warranty that goes beyond the manufacturer's 2 year warranty.

Be sure and read the limitations of what not is covered. We paid around $1500 for ours and it is good for five years with a $100 deductible. After the awning lights went bad, I found out that all lights were not covered. Would it have been a game changer, probably not. We also took the tire and wheel warranty. Unsure about that.

We purchased a 3 year plan through Camping World and it's worthless. The plan doesn't cover much of anything. I have issues with our RV and the plan doesn't cover them. We spent over $2k for it. We ended up canceling the plan and getting a prorated refund.

The plans aren't worth it. I don't care what anyone says. You pay for something that only covers a minimal amount of issues you might have. In the contract it has two full pages of things it DOESN'T cover, but has less than two paragraphs of things it does cover.

Carefully do your research and read all of the small print. I am sure that there are reputable extended warranty companies but the one sold to us by our first dealer WAS NOT.
We traveled South across the Wisconsin boarder to purchased our very first used 5th Wheel RV. Seeing as we knew nothing of RV’s or RVing we purchased an extended warranty. Each time we returned to the dealership with a problem it was always the same reply; “that is as a pre-existing condition and not covered”. At one time the repair technician left me under my RV and let me know that if the fresh water tank were leaking when he returned that it’s replacement would be covered; no matter that the mounting bracket was defective and the tank was about to fall out. I towed the RV back home and fixed it myself.
We were frustrated and dumped the RV and the Insurance at a loss. We requested a refund from the dealership on the unused warranty. For months we waited; we called and received no reply. After 5 months we finally called the warranty folks to learn that the dealership had received our check months earlier and never refunded us. We were promptly issued a check directly from the warranty company.

Despite this poor experience we went elsewhere and purchased a new Crossroads Cruiser with the 2-5 warranty. We have happily been workamping since. We now perform many of our own repairs and modifications.

It's just insurance... some people need it and some don't...

you pays your money and you takes your chances

Depends on the exposure your want... in my case, the first one I got on my redwood didn't pay off, on my current rig, it's paid off twice over (so far!)

If you don’t mind me asking what company is your warranty through?
