I would have to go with Good Sam, just because they stand behind what they sell. With so many companies going out of business, I would believe Good Sam would be the best bet.

I bought a 2008 GS Cresendo earlier this year and shopped around for insurance and extended warranty, the best option seemed to be Good Sam.

"go rv", they offer a good package, & more than reasonable????

I had RV shield for an extended warranty for seven years and they paid every time I turned in a claim. The most expensive was when my Huei fuel pump went out and it cost with labor $3400.00. All I paid was the deductable which was fifty dollars.
They also paid for a heater fan and Evans pump.
Also for a radiator overflow plastic container that sits right on top of the radiator. It sprung a pinhole leak while I was at a balloon fiesta in Albuquerque, N.M.
So the extended insurance I had more then paid for itself. I actually got it more for the engine and transmission if they were to go out, but they have been good so far.
The thing is that once it runs out you couldn't renew it. So I don't carry one now.

rv shield? was that the name of the company?, do have any contact information?....thks. jim

Yes the name of the extended insurance was RV Shield 1-800-548-1875
I got this through the dealer when I bought the coach new. But after the seven years I wanted to continue with it and they said it was through dealers only. So I don't know, you might give them a call and see what they tell you.
Good luck!
One thing I will mention if you do get it. If something breaks down, don't let anybody touch what ever broke trying to fix it before the insurance is notified. They have to authorize the repair first before any action is taken. Just a tip!
