United States Warranty Corporation - Experiences?

Hello to all.

I am a newly minted forum participant and will be taking delivery of my 2018 Interstate Grand Tour in about ten days. The dealer is offering a warranty extension through USWC that would be in effect from year four through seven or to 100k miles. The plan is called "Eagle Plus, their best coverage option. The initial offering is priced at roughly $4500.

My questions:

1) Does anybody here have experience with USWC, good or bad, that they would be willing to share?

2) Are there any other providers that I should be considering?

Many thanks!

100% profit for the seller. Read the fine print for exclusions and gotcha’s. Take the money you would waste on the warranty and put it in the bank.

Extended warranties on used motor-RV's???

If I could piggy-back on this discussion please? OP was buying a brand new motorized RV (Class B) versus a stationery Airstream, so the respondent may have been a bit confused.

If I can ask, I am buying a USED, Airstream Avenue with 44,000 miles on it. IT appears immaculate, but I recall someone quipping that RV did NOT stand for "recreational vehicle" but rather "ruined vacations".

I don't want those. I'm trying to pull off my "bucket list" and don't want headaches. Are there any real-world experiences on this forum, or recommendations as to what companies TRULY provide EXCEPTIONAL bumper-to-bumper (vehicle and house) coverage, notwithstanding the $100 per claim deductible?

Any and all guidance/recommendations solicited and welcomed.
Thanks in advance!

Hi

The full list of every full up used RV warranty company (that really does a good job) ever heard of:

(yes the list is blank).

The simple answer is that it's a small market. The people most likely to have trouble are the ones who will buy policies. ... hmmm.... warranty is less than the price of a tow + full engine rebuild ... what's that noise ... sign me up... The result is a market served by people who are happy to take your money. They also are very careful not to pay any money out.

There are outfits that will sell you a "towing" policy. That will get you off the side of the road. Past that, have some money in the bank.

There are insurance companies. Some are better than others. None of them really understand RV's. They aren't going to cover the 99% of work that is not a result of an accident. They will protect you to some degree when a tree falls and totals your RV.

No simple answer.

Bob

Question

High Cotton,

I wouldn't worry about the RV end of the equation, that won't leave you stranded.

25yrs at GM store serv departments....what do I know?

Are you dealing with a GM Store?


The best option is always go with the plan supported by the manufacturer.
If your vehicle is still covered by a General Motors Protection Plan.(GMPP), you may be able to extend the policy.

If not...
One of the best to deal with was Interstate.

Another one Hertz.1-800-654-4171

I've been retired too long to offer any more....Get some names and I'll ck my phone files.

Be careful there are a LOT of FBN outfits, that ain't worth a hoot.

I just did the google on them

Bob
