Extended warranty

What are people's thoughts of purchasing extended warranty? It will give me an extra 5 years.

If you can get a good deal on it, yes, worth it. We went with 5 years, low deductible from XtraRide.

We have always bought the warranty. Paid for itself on our previous rv. This time, we got the 7 year warranty. Some items are so expensive that even if you same the money on not buying the warranty, you still will be short on money when you have to replace a major item. We have the Good Sam warranty.

We just bought our 2015 ST240BH from a dealer, so it is not new. Initially we passed on the extended warranty when offered, initially @ $1895, then dropped to $1750, for a five year plan thru Camper's edge. After spending the money to buy it, we just didn't want to spend more. Then, I started checking posts like these...

A few days later I was at the dealer to drop off a weight distribution hitch I purchased elsewhere to have them install for $133. When I went in, the finance guy was not the guy we initially dealt with. He pulled my paperwork, and brought up the extended warranty again. I was silent as he "re-sold" it, and then he offered it to me for $1625. I said I'd talk to the wife and left, then had a thought... I went back in and said that if he could throw in the hitch install, I'd do the deal at $1625. To my surprise, he agreed!

So, I went from $1895 +$133 = $2028, to $1625 for a 5 year service contract and hitch install. Obviously they are still making a profit, and I may have still over paid, but after seeing all these posts I'm glad I decided to buy it!

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I have an additional question about extended warranties. I am currently in the process of buying a brand new travel trailer. It has a 2 year warranty. Of all the research I have done, the general consensus is not to get the extended warranty right away but wait until the manufacturer warranty is up and then decide if I want to purchase additional protection. I checked with my dealer and they tell me they can still offer the extended warranty after two years but the price will be around $900 more. My question is, do I have no other choice but to buy extended coverage from my dealer? I am searching everywhere online and every company that sells extended coverage tells me they only deal with dealers and not individuals. I'm in Canada so maybe we have fewer options here but I would think as a consumer, I should have the option to shop around. Am I looking at this the wrong way?

don't want to be the drag here, but I don't think warrantys are worth the paper they are written on, just from my past experience with 2 trucks and now a camper
