Re: Warranty for Second-Hand Motorhome 
Sounds pretty okay to me, but like the others here, 5 years may be way too long a time. Most of the problems will show up within the first two years. Try asking the agent if he has anything within that time range and within your budget as well.

Re: Warranty for Second-Hand Motorhome 
Quite agree with ej's suggestion. Make sure also to check the fine print to see if the warranty will really cover everything. It's shocking and quite frustrating to find a lot of people that are offering these warranties and stuff and then end up with a whole lot exclusions that you start to wonder just exactly what are you paying for.

Re: Warranty for Second-Hand Motorhome 
Personally, I wouldn't mind paying for that just as long as, like what Shisler said, that you read through the fine print to make sure that you get your money's worth.

Re: Warranty for Second-Hand Motorhome 
That price for a warranty seems awfully high. When I bought a one-year-old 35-foot Itasca Sunova 33C motorhome in 2012 I also paid for a five-year Good Sam Camping World warranty that worked out to be about $44/month. It covers everything in my coach but the furniture. Thus far, I would have paid more to have the repairs done than I've paid for the extended warranty and there are no surprises. I've had two expensive hydraulic jacks, a hot water heater check valve and a step retraction assembly replaced and repairs done to my fresh water tank to stop it from dumping its contents. The shop has also made adjustments to the electronically controlled shades that would have been costly without such coverage.
