  • Purchase a second year extension to factory GD warranty?

    Has anyone purchased through their dealer at time of purchase a second year of GD factory warranty? Is this even available? How much? After patiently waiting, we are finally picking up our new ordered Solitude 390 rk-r on Monday. For some reason, this thought has planted itself in my head. On previous SOB unit purchases, it has been an available option thru the dealer. Would have come in handy on our last unit.

    I am pretty sure this isn’t available from Grand Design. Your dealer may offer some kind of third party extended warranty, my personal opinion is these are not worth the paper they are printed on. That said, I’m handy and resourceful and make my own repairs. If you’re relying on the dealer for all of your service it might make more sense. My rig hasn’t been to a dealer since I bought it.

      I agree that this is only a third party warranty , or insurance policy , and will not be thru Grand Design. Most , if not all , of the appliances in the RV will have a 2 year warranty from the manufacture of the appliance. The roof membrane has its own warranty and GD has a longer structure warranty so that does not leave much to get an extended warranty. If you choose any kind of extended warranty please read thru the coverage very carefully. Just like an insurance policy they like to get out of paying. You will more than likely have to make this decision by yourself.

        Thanks for replying. For the record, GD does not offer an extension to their factory warranty. I negotiated the price of a Portfolio extended third party warranty down to where it made sense. I had one of these on our last 5th wheel (made by Forest River). They were very reasonable about approving repairs. We came out ahead $ wise. When you sell your rv, you get a pro rated refund based on time remaining, without consequence of paid claims.

          My wife found a very good description of extended service plans a while back (they are not warranties, but rather insurance policies with lots of fine print). They are another form of legalized gambling. The company is betting that nothing breaks that would cause them to pay out more than you paid for the policy; you're betting it will. As in all forms of legalized gambling, the house usually wins. Otherwise, these companies wouldn't be in business or make a profit. We prefer to set money aside regularly (earning interest) and pay for repairs as they come up.

            Thank you once again for the great information. I didn't realize we could get money back on our extended warranty when we sold our RV. I'm completing the paperwork to do that now for the Micro Minnie we sold.

                That's the downside of visiting here. I keep finding things to buy and install.
