I personally believe that extended warranties are not worth the money unless you can't afford a major repair. If I added up all the money on extended warranties that I could have purchased over the years and never needed to use, I have saved enough money to repair anything that might need to be repaired in the future. Since motor homes have a lot of things that can break I debated on getting one this time, but I wondered if they'd find a way not to cover it. I also made the HUGE mistake of taking my new RV to Camping World for a few warranty issues (not my selling dealer just the only dealer in my area to do Thor warranty repairs) there is sits on their parking lot waiting for them to get around to troubleshoot the problem so they can get Thor approval to complete the repair, which sounds like it will take them another week or two to complete the repair after they get Thor approval. I'd probably get it all done quicker if I took it to an Independent RV repair shop and pay cash, I'm glad I didn't spend the money for an extended warranty to where I'm stuck with an "approved" warranty service center, it seems like non warranty work is easier to find "prompt" service.

I tend to agree that extended warranties are unlikely to “pay off” for most people. But I have one just the same. My last coach had a slide failure (part of the frame broke) and I didn’t have a warranty on it. The repair was over $1400 which was less than the warranty would have cost but it was painful just the same. Wife insisted when we bought the new coach so there you go. I am pretty handy and have been able to fix a lot of things but I can tell you that slide, AC, fridge and generator failures can EASILY make a fellow wish he’d bought the warranty. If it makes you feel better buy it. Just be sure to read the fine print and follow the rules.

We took deliver of our 2021 ACE 33.1 last Saturday (11/21/20). We purchased the extended warranty, but picked a different terms from what was originally offered.

First offered was 5yrs/100,000 miles. I asked for 7yrs/70,000 miles. Wife and I still work full time. The 2015 Forest River (Forester) that we traded only had 26,000 miles. Almost kept it for 5 years. So we figured we would rather have the 7 years/70,000 miles.
