    03/08/2017, Thanks for all your input and lessions. I was wondering if it would be a good idea if I know nothing about a rving if I go to a dealer and ask them if I could spend a 1/2 a day inside the shop to learn more about the motorhomes?

    Good video Chuck, however most companies can cover the engine and transmission and I would not recommend coverage without it. Also, I would suggest looking for policies that are called "Exclusionary Policies", meaning they must tell you specifically what is NOT covered, otherwise the item will be covered. If a salesperson tells you EVERYTHING is covered, be weary, there are no policies without exclusions. If your looking for help with this, check out my company at WholesaleWarranties(dot)com

    Thanks Chuck. That's what I was looking for. Just looked over Charlie's web site. Combined with your comments, it means a lot. I'll definitely have them high on my list when I go to buy.

    Charlie, I know your company has a good reputation and has been around a long time. I urge anyone looking for an extended warranty to include you in his or her search for a policy. rvwarranty(dot)com

    Completely understand. As a beginner myself, I saw the title and was hoping the question would be answered – at least in some degree, based on your experience as a veteran of RV living. My only point is that the title is misleading, purely an attention-getter. It's just disappointing. Perhaps, "RV Warranties – Things to Consider" would be more appropriate. But hey, it did get me to watch, so I guess it worked.

    This was aimed at beginning RVers, who simply need to know what they are up against when buying an extended warranty. I was very clear about that. But, frankly, what is the best extended warranty for one person may not be right for another. As I said, one should do his or her research.

    Still wondering, should I buy an extended warranty for my RV? All well and good to urge people to do their research. That's obvious to most I would think. Came to this video looking for a real recommendation based on your experience. How about recommending a specific policy and/or company that, again based on your experience and that of the many RV'ers you talk to, have consistently delivered on their promises. Sorry, it's just frustrating to continually see misleading headlines.

    Hi Chuck, good video and good advice with one exception, we cover the house part of the RV and have an option to cover drive train components also, have done so for years. Charles Davis, RVwarranty(dot)com. One other thing I might mention, buy a warranty that excludes nothing, again excludes nothing, it is the best way to go. You can check the net for problems from some warranty providers, take your time, do the homework as Chuck suggested!
