After the manufacturer's warranty has expired, your extended warranty will continue to cover any repair costs that you may incur for your RV. And, as with anything of value that has a warranty, something usually happens soon after the manufacturer's warranty expires, leaving you with the cost of repair...not true with your extended warranty.
You can purchase an extended warranty, whether your RV is brand new or used. We always recommend that you buy your extended warranty at the same time you buy your RV, whether it is new or used. The reason being, all warranty companies will add a month and mileage surcharge to all new warranty policies, up to 36,000 miles. If you wait to purchase your warranty until well after you bought the RV, you could end up paying much more for the same warranty than if you had purchased the warranty at the same time as your RV.
Most RVs come with a 3 year/36,000 mile warranty on the chassis for gas engines and a 5 year/50,000 or 100,000 mile warranty for diesel
engines (internal components only). They also come with a one year warranty on the coach's components. Once the manufacturer's warranty has expired, the owner is on their own to cover any costs of repair on the equipment. When the manufacturer's warranty has expired, the extended warranty will continue to cover repair costs on your RV.
