2009 Int'l Sig - need ext warranty?

We're looking at a 19' 2009 International Signature Airstream. The sales rep is trying to sell us a CoachNet extended warranty, which is $2500 for 3 years. Would you advise this? It covers all mechanics and systems. Seems pretty steep for a 4-yr-old. We could also get it for 3 years, but cancel after the first year and get a prorated refund. What's your advice? Thanks in advance

I'd have a PPI of the trailer before doing the deal....and if the systems are all functional AND you've had someone make sure you don't have any leaks (or water damage), I'd pass on the extended warranty. Chances are that most of the new trailer fixups have already been done, and if it's tight and dry, I would pass. Even at $100 an hour for having work done, you'd need a big mess to hit 25 hours. True, most of the "systems" -- i.e., fridge, stove, furnace are now out of manufacturer's warranty, you could still replace just about anything with that amount.

So when is this..."old enough to know better" supposed to kick in?

Welcome to the forums.

Pass. That's a lot of $$ and a long list of exclusions. It would take a lot to ever get your money back.
