When you’re shopping for your new RV, you may be overwhelmed with the warranty options. Worse, you might have heard horror stories from RV owners online.
Robert from Leisureland RV Center is answering the big question: does a lifetime warranty for RVs exist?
We all know the word that brings about feelings of dread in even some die-hard RVers: “warranty.” It’s enough to make anyone feel overwhelmed. But what does a warranty cover? How long does it take to get issues fixed, and where do you send a claim form or fee if there is an issue with your new RV?!
When you’re shopping for an RV, you want the best deal, the peace of mind that you’ll be able to enjoy your investment for years to come, and a fuel-efficient RV is important now with inflation and the rising prices of fuel.
RV manufacturers offer a variety of warranties. Some brands have limited coverage, but most include at least one year bumper-to-bumper well as other benefits such as coverage on appliances and your RVs frame. But what happens when your warranty expires?
This is where a lifetime warranty would come in handy. Does that even exist for a high-ticket item like an RV? We break down everything you need to know here!
Everything You Need to Know About a Lifetime Warranty for an RV
Sure, having a manufacturer’s warranty is great, but it almost feels like planned obsolescence. “We’ll cover anything wrong with your RV for the first 1-3 years but you’re on your own after that.” Not very reassuring but what choice do we have?
If you’re like most people, you want to make sure your investment is going to take you to adventures – not take you to bankruptcy (too dramatic?). Well, we did some digging and found a lifetime warranty specifically made for new and used RVs and it’s called Warranty Forever!
That’s right, it does exist! With the Warranty Forever, coverage lasts as long as you own your RV. All you have to do is complete the annual maintenance outlined in the Warranty Forever agreement, and it’s covered!
Here’s what needs to be maintained annually:
- Visually inspect the RV roof and reseal where necessary
