Why should I purchase your extended warranty over one of your competitors?
We have been in business since 1975 and are one of the oldest RV Extended Service Protection companies in the United States. We’ve carefully built in special coverages that you may not find elsewhere. For instance, we include coverage for diagnostic fees, shipping and taxes. Seals and Gaskets are included at no extra cost on all plans. Senior Citizens, Active Military and Veterans receive a 25% reduction in their deductible when they call in a claim.
We also include the following benefits at no extra cost to you on every contract: USWC Personal Assistant, Towing, Emergency Service Calls, Lockout and Trip Interruption.
Are seals and gaskets covered?
Seals & Gaskets coverage is included at no extra cost on all plans (excluding powertrain only coverage).
What is GAP coverage and do you offer it?
GAP is a unique coverage program that protects you from financial disaster in case your vehicle is stolen or totaled. Here’s why: as your vehicle gets older, the actual cash value (ACV) declines, while your lease or loan balance may remain higher than what the insurance company will pay you. You are then liable for the difference between what the insurance company pays you and what you owe.
Many people do not realize that they are responsible for the balance owed on the vehicle. GAP covers the difference between your loan or lease balance and your insurance settlement.
Please contact us directly to find a dealer near you who offers our GAP protection.
