extended warranty

Just bought a 16' Sport and declined the extended warranty coverage. Would appreciate some input on whether or not I should spend this extra $3K. Thanks!

No. Most items that can go wrong will probably happen in the first two years and are covered by the manufacturer. Even if a major item like a air conditioner or furnace you could use the money you saved to pay for it.

Minor items, most of us figure out how to repair ourselves often with the help of those on these forums.

You made a wise choice. Thatís just a profit booster for the dealership.

Especially considering that most items installed in your trailer will already have a seperate warranty apart from Airstream.

I agree. You did the right thing to reject the extended warranty. We end up fixing most things ourselves. Many of the dealer service departments are incompetent st best.

Take the $3,000 and have a spectacular Airstream Adventure.
