Mine has paid for itself (new cooling unit, new convection/microwave oven, furnace circuit board, television and a hydraulic jack).

Extended warranty is a bet. You are betting you will use it and the insuring company is betting you want. I have it for peace of mind and hope I don't have to use it. I used it once to replace a bad wheel and since then I have replaced all of them myself. This is more of a catastrophic insurance for most people for the a/c and fridge as these are probably the most expensive items people have problems with. I probably wouldn't buy one again but if I were full timing then yes as full timers get more use out of there rig in one year as I get in 6 or 7 years.

We have has extended warranties on both of our Montana's. I would never own an RV as complicated as a Montana without one. This is a personal decision that has been talked about many times on this forum. Do what is good for you.

I have a plan from Compass for my 2017 Montana 3000RE. My plan is pretty pricey. I would like to find out from Montana owners, that have extended warranties, which ones do you have and what is the best one.

I've maintained health insurance for nearly 50 years and I still hope I don't get all my money back in services.



Having said that, We have the forever warrenty that lasts as long as we own the rig and pretty much covers bumper to bumper with no deductables. I need to bring it in yearly for roof inspection and axel lube for $150. We are usually 1000 plus miles from home and our dealer so the peace of mind is worth it.



BTW, these service contracts are way overpriced and the dealer really wants to sell one as the margin is high. You can usually negociate 1/3 to 1/2 off.

Wholesale Warranties

Today I purchased a 2-year extended warranty from Wholesale Warranties. I have a 2011 Montana 3100RL. Following a recent divorce I'm using this coach as a temporary home and I bought the warranty for the peace of mind. For those who might be interested, mine is a 2-year agreement with a $200 deductible per incident, $2,049 total. $450 down and $133 monthly for 12 months so there's nothing to pay for the second year. For some reason Good Sam charged about the same amount but for only a single year of coverage. I was very surprised at that but understanding how these warranty prices are calculated is way beyond my pay grade. Before I made my decision I read over and over that you could negotiate a better price with the warranty companies but that didn't work with the folks at Wholesale Warranties. No worries, I'm happy. They were easy to deal with. Just wanted to add my 2 cents to this conversation.
