Protection Plan
« on: September 02, 2017, 07:20:44 PM »
My dealer is trying to sell me protection plan for my brand new motor home.

It consists of an application on the exterior of the coach, that is supposed to help maintain its finish for five years, plus some type of fabric finish to help maintain the upholstery inside.

This will cost $1,695. My question is this, worth it or not?

My vote is NO! Scotchguard is the inside treatment and just a good wax job outside. Even if you get the rig washed and waxed four times you will be well below that price.

I have been told that most new coaches come with soil  resistant fabrics which means they have already been treated with something like Scotchgard.  As for the exterior, keep it clean from road grime and it will last 5 years looking good on it's own.  Ours is 15 years old and still looks great but I will admit that it is stored indoors.  I would really lose a lot of faith in a dealer to whom I had just given several thousand dollars and then have them try to scam me with such an offer.

Anything a used car/rv dealer is trying to sell you that is optional is always massively overpriced and usually unnecessary IMHO.
I would like to apologize to anyone I have not yet offended. Please be patient and I will get to you shortly.

Thanks all.

I figured it was a ripoff, and I declined the offer.

However if the opinion was it was a worthwhile option, I would have called him back on it, seeing as how I do not plan on taking possession till this coming Thursday.
