FreedomCare Extended Warranty from FreedomRoads

When we purchased our 1999 Winnebago Chieftain from Meyer’s RV Superstore in Syracuse, NY, they offered us an extended warranty product from FreedomRoads called FredomCare.

I’m not a big believer in extended warranties. I figure if the retail outlet thinks the product they’re selling needs an extended warranty, they must not have much confidence in it; so why are they selling the product in the first place?

However, we were buying a motorhome that was already five years old and it was a big investment. I feared if there was anything major wrong with it, we would be strapped to pay for repairs. It added $4,600.00 to our loan but gave us some peace of mind.

The warranty is for 4 years or 48,000 miles, whichever comes first and has a $50.00 deductible. Since we purchased the warranty, we’ve used it 3 times. We’ve had two of our hydraulics replaced and our engine air conditioner compressor replaced. In all instances FreedomCare covered parts and labor with no delay.

As of 10/27/07 we have either one year or 12,000 miles left before the warranty expires. So far FreedomCare made out in the deal, but who knows what the future holds.

I’m not necessarily recommending an extended warranty, but if you are interested in purchasing one for your motorhome, then we recommend FreedomCare as a viable option.
