I purchased a Mercedes 6 service plan on my 14 when it was new for a cost of $2400. (w/o Adblu). I recently had the 4th year service done which included brake flush and tranny fluid change + a bunch of other stuff. Service advisor said that one service usually runs about 2k. I feel like my prepaid plan is paying off in spades. Some friends picked up a new 2015 AI earlier this year and they found that Mercedes now offers an 8 year plan which they bought for around $4800 (including Adblu). Their plan will obviously include 2 of the 4 year mega services. This is a Mercedes Benz Star Maintenence plan. Personal choice but I like it.

Service/maintenance plan yeah... this was extended warranty... not worth it.

Will see if local Mercedes have those service plans and see what those cost. Thank you!

All the Mercedes Dealers that handle Sprinters can sell you one.

If you want an extended warranty on the rv itself, Good Sam has a decent one that provides pretty affordable peace of mind if you opt for the high deductible version. I wouldn't consider it until the basic Sprinter warranty runs out because you would simply be purchasing duplicate coverage. The Good Sam plan covers the Sprinter power train etc. as well as the AI installed equipment.

LOL you are all too funny

I was about to order the hitch carrier for my Triumph Thruxton but folks in the Triumph forum are not too supportive of the idea. Trying to find folks carrying similar bikes with the Mototote to get some real user feedback.

The first improvement I made on our new (to us) 2010 Interstate was adding an interior switch to turn the propane on/off. The outside switch remains in place so it complies with the safety regulations. I can't imagine RVing without the inside switch.

I use a MotoTote but just to carry a 275# Hooligan Scooter and mine is a standard length AI with a higher tongue load rating. Don't know of anyone hauling anything as heavy as a Truxton. I'm sure you'll go over the recommended hitch tongue load with what you are proposing. You might want to consider a small trailer for the bike.

I agree with the above poster on the interior propane switch. One of my earliest additions. My dealer charged $175 to install.
