Transfer of warranty

My understanding is AS has a three yr warrant that is tranferabe, is it from purchase date? Do you file paperwork with AS or just tracked by vin regardless of owner?

This is how it was for me, don't know current situation. My warranty could be transferred after a dealer inspection and payment of a fee. The warranty ended at the point from the original new sale.

More research led to a dismal outcome, warranty only covers fit and finish and will not cover any items found during the inspection for new owner. Not sure if it is worth anything at that point

I tend to agree. I had one year remaining on my warranty, tried to make a claim for roof caulking and was told that was wear and tear, no coverage. I had no issues that could be claimed under the warranty.

Several years ago I purchased a one year old 23FB. I paid a $200 fee to transfer the Airstream Warranty. A short time later the air conditioner compressor went out. I thought that I was covered but came to find that the Airstream warranty does not cover the Dometic appliances. The Dometic warranty does NOT transfer to a new owner. I had to bear the entire cost of the new air conditioning unit.

This brings up another issue that I have been thinking about. With the new Airstream three year warranty, did Dometic increase their warranty period to three years???

Interesting. I just got a 2021 GT and want to make sure I file the paperwork for the warranty transfer. I know that the warranty for any appliances does not transfer, but I thought anything else related to what Airstream built would. For example, if there was some defect that lead to frame separation, that would be covered. Not sure if this would transfer to things like defects with the Dexter axels for example.

I would also point out I had some issues with my Nova Kool refrigerator when I first bought my 25' GT. I called Nova Kool and explained the issue and that I was not the original owner. The support person said "no worries, we will not leave you hanging" and spent quite a bit of time with me on the phone working the issue and even sent me replacement parts for no charge. Do not expect that kind of excellent service from Dometic or some of the other appliance suppliers.
