I bought a one year old 30' Classic off of a individual who had purchased a forever, transferable warranty for quite a few dollars.
After numerous calls and communication and giving me the run around for more than six months I gave up.
It was plain to see that they no intention of honoring their worthless piece of paper (warranty).
I would hate to think what it would have been like to actually have a warranty and try to get anything out of them.
Con artists extraordinaire.

That's what I understand. I know that it sounds really good. I guess that time will tell.

I also received a forever warranty when I purchased my 2014 25 foot flying cloud here in Texas. Cost nothing for warranty just an annual $175 inspection which is a good deal in my book.

That was my thought exactly.

2018 Bambi “Warranty” saga

Not sure how a warranty helps if you cant get things fixed- Sure my warranty is good - brand new 2018 Bambi purchased 5 weeks ago- used one night and the refrigerator stopped working- It’s been back in dealer’s shop Dixie RV in Defuniak since- I have spoken with service rep, manager and no one can tell me when it will be fixed. I have called Airstream Main Warranty 3 times- “we’ll call you back” - no calls back.
So, “board blew” and Airstream “approved” Dixie to order new board. It was installed and it “blew”, so they thought maybe it could be the front panel. Airstream main “yes we approved a new panel”. No one can give me any idea of how long this will take- I asked Airstream main and they said they have no control over it.
So, have fun with Airstream warranties. I’m out $47k and have nothing to show for it. (They also act like they are doing me a favor for fixing their product)

To all those that have this "Forever Warranty" I will give you this point.

A "Forever Warranty" is only as forever as the person that sold it to you wants it to last.

For example, I worked for a bit at a Honda dealer this summer that use to sell the electronic anti-rust box. They sold it for 8 years and at the end of eight years switched to another rustproof system when people started showing up with rust concerns; "sorry", the service manager would say to customers, " the company that sold us the product has gone out of business and will not reimburse the dealership to fix your car". After a couple of upset customers, the service manager confided in me that dealerships always change their rustproofing systems every eight to ten years to stiff customers.......

....but they loved it when people would come in for their yearly $99.95 touch up and inspection

PT Barnum supposedly said it best........."There is a sucker born every minute"

Cheers
Tony

Hi

Not quite clear how Bambi factory issues relate to a three years dead thread on aftermarket warranties...... One key difference, people do regularly get things fixed under the standard AS and other factory warranties. People almost never get anything fixed under the aftermarket BS warranties.
