This appeared in the RV.Net Blog: Keep in mind, these extended warranty policies are a money making business for those selling them. Therefore, for the average buyer, they more than likely will not be cost affective. This is not to say that you will not be one of the few that such contracts have saved them tenfold. Essentially it is a risk whether you buy or not. If you buy an extended warranty, you only win if repairs are required, at or above the cost of the contract. If you don’t purchase the warranty you only win if your repairs are below that of the contract cost. In general, the odds are in your favor to not purchase such a guarantee.
In 1971 we started with a new Winnebago 20 Brave and have always had gassers, now a 2006 Allegro Bay 37. Did I ever consider a diesel ? Yes, most recently a couple years ago, a 5 year old Tiffin Zephyr 45, a dream coach. Here are the reasons I didn't buy it: Room-I don't need more, Power-I get where I want to go now. Sure the Zephyr would ride infinitely better, quiet, more power & room, etc. It all depends on your desires, not needs.
