First of all, I know that a lot of people think that ESP's are a waste of money and not worth it, BUT, I am not handy or mechanically minded. Whenever I have ever tried to do something in the past, I made it worse or broke something.

Besides that, I am a Newbie who will be picking up a new Rockwood 2205S in a few weeks.

I just received a quote from the Good Sam ESP for 6 years for $1313 with $300 deductible. That works out to be about $219 a year or $19 a month. At that price, it would give me peace of mind in case of a major problem.

That said, I was wondering which company might be best for an ESP?

Thanks

Read it before you sign. There may be things like $100 inspections (as an example) you may have to have done yearly or the warranty won’t provide coverage. Just read it first, completely, so you can be fully aware of whats covered, what’s not, and your responsibilities.

Hey folks. The OP is a new member. Please address his question and don't give him the usual snarky jazz that y'all give the senior members.

They may very well be a good thing for a newbie with no or very little mechanical ability,and if the price and peace of mind would make your entry to the RV life easier then I would say go for it.

My suggestion would be to just do your research and then make up your mind This Google Search has a lot of information that may be helpful,read as many articles as you can.

My only experience with one was not good because of the"small print"and as a newbie at the time it seemed like a good idea,it just did not work out. I think that you will have to make up your own mind about it.

Good Luck!

I have the Good Sam Extended Service Plane fro a Motorhome and so far I am happy with it.

Read the information carefully for what is and is not covered and the required maintenance requirements.

I had GSESP for many years on all of my different rigs. I had my 5th wheel and tow truck covered and I am glad I did. GSESP covered ALL of the steering components on both sides of my truck, well over 2,000.

I would still have GSESP on my current coach but because of the age 07 the cost of ESP was way to high.

Now the garage did have to get the ok to do the work, I believe GS had someone come out to check if needed to be done. I understand why this needed to be done. It seems there are folks out there who would take advantage of the system, do you believe that!

Yes they may not cover stuff but then so do a lot of house ins. policies auto polices, even warranty policies. Just know what is covered and whats not.

I like GSESP because they do not require you to go to a certain place to get the work done. I.E. if you are traveling and something happens your taken care of.

Good Luck safe travels
