I just ordered the 5er from RVW. They mentioned an option that is a "consumer protection plan." It supposedly covers about anything that could go wrong. If you don't use it during the time of coverage you get all of the money ($3499) back. I tend to shy away from these type of "deals" but would like to hear from anyone with experience with similar programs.

$3500 is a lot of money for a protection plan. We did not buy an extended warranty because of the 2 year warranty the trailer came with. Once that was up we got the Good Sam CSP which cost us about $400 a year. Most of your bugs should be worked out in that 2 year period I would think.

i've never heard of a money back protection plan. in the almost 4 years of ownng my trailer the only out of warrenty thing spent money on was batterys. i agree with keith, 2 years is usually enough time to work out any bugs. good luck wth your trailer.

I agree with the other comments. For $3,500.00 you can buy a lot of replacement parts after your 2 year warranty is up. Doubt you would ever spend that much.

We turned it down when we bought our Cruiser from RVW in August, 2009. My main concern is who is backing the warranty. It is obviously a third party warranty and you have to wonder the viability of the company backing said warranty. As has been said, $3,500 buys a whole lot repairs. The two year Crossroads warranty gets most items fixed.
