And a reminder…

In some states, you cannot have cross-brand warranty work performed, meaning that you can't get MB warranty work performed at Freightliner, and vice versa, even though they're the same vehicle except for the grille and name badges.

More appropriately....an "extended service plan"

" the dealer offers a warranty"....unless it's a plan offered by the manufacturer I would pass, especially for $5k with a $500 ded.

38 yrs in auto dealer service, I've found very few after-market service plans that are worth the investment. None are "bumper to bumper."

FWIW...I do have GMPP Major Guard coverage on our Burb. (re-couped the initial cost with two AC repairs.)

I just purchased an extended warranty from wholesalewarranty for 2795.00. 100 dollar deductible, 7 years, 75,000 mi. My dealer offered me the same exact policy for 5k plus. I believe the policy is from cornerstone. It is an exclusionary policy.

Protag is correct; the last I heard the 12 states that prohibit cross-brand warranty work are AR, CO, DE, FL, LA, NH, NJ, NY, OK, TX, UT, VT.

Also, if you purchase your Interstate new from an Airstream dealer make sure the dealer has submitted the paperwork to have the MB warranty start date "reset" to the date of your purchase. And then verify it is correct by having an MB or Freightliner dealer run your VIN. If they don't get this process right, your Sprinter warranty will start on the date Airstream took possession of the Sprinter. This can result in the loss of several months of warranty coverage. In my case, this paperwork didn't get processed correctly and I would have lost some 18 months of coverage if I hadn't have caught the error.

Be very careful here....wholesalewarranty.net is NOT the administrator of the "warrantee", they are the wholesaler. It's much better to deal directly with the folks who actually sell and handle the claim process.

Do you know the actual source company for your plan? I would check their CS history and contact them directly with any questions.

From an on-line complaint forum....

"To begin, I would like to clarify my company's position in the warranty sale and claims process. WholesaleWarranties.net is a Wholesaler of vehicle service contracts. We offer several different contracts through several different administrators. We are not, however, the administrator of these contracts. We do not hold these contracts, nor are we responsible for claim authorization, approval or denial, or payment. As a customer service benefit for our clients we offer our services as liaison between the customer and vehicle service contract administrator in the event that they have a contract or claims question or issue."

Wholesale warranties is obviously not the administrator. If I bought this contact from the dealer, they would not be the administrator either. The contract is between Cornerstone United and myself. My dealer has had good results with claims from Cornerstone. Lazy Days RV also sells the Cornerstone Extended. The reviews from other forums have been generally positive regarding Wholesale warranties. Of course I will not know what I bought until I have a couple of claims. I don't think Airstream sells their own extended warranty.

The dealer said the warranty is thru easycare. They said the deductible is $100, not $500 . I may have miss understood them when I talked to them last time.

Hi, I owned two black vehicles at the same time; I could wash both of them, go in my house and eat dinner, and come back out to see both vehicles look like they were snowed on. Also they are much hotter inside and out. Never again, will I own a black car or truck. Silver used to be a color that faded real bad. Painters said it was because silver has no pigment. White was known for peeling. They just don't make paint like they used to. I would, if I were you, pick the silver one.

Working at new car dealers since 1968, I would never purchase any after market warranty. Only buy a warranty offered by, and covered by, the actual manufacturer of the vehicle. [in your case Mercedes Benz]

Get a white one, put a Fed Ex sticker on it, and park anywhere you want

I like black and silver about the same. Black is hotter, but you have an air conditioner. Black,does show dirt more, but it doesn't age any faster. The black SUV is a '99 and the silver pickup is an '07. They are both still shiny and pretty. This photo also contains a shot of my previous sob trailer.
It wouldn't let me attach a photo- said I exceeded my quota, gave a click here message but did not redirect- I guess I have to either donate money or delete photos?

I like the Airstream logo on the hood.
Where'd you get that?
I have thought about putting Classic logos and a blue pinstripe on my pickup.
I have also thought about painting the bottom 6" black to match the banana wrap. I could have a chrome rub strip at the bottom and at the belt line- airbrush in about 3,000 rivets...blue striped canvas Zip Dee seat covers...
A Tundra Airstream edition...
