I just got this in my Email from Motor Home advise com. It is a good reminder for those of you who are buying used and those of you who have a Extended Warranty on a Coach that is a 2003. Here is what they had to say.

End of Year Updates 2016:
– January 1st, 2017: rates will be going up for all RV’s, as your RV will be considered one model year older. It’s a common misconception that warranties get less expensive as the coach gets older, and this derives mainly from RVers experiencing a dip in their Comprehensive and Collision insurance over time. Unfortunately, this is not the case for extended service contracts, or extended warranties. As the coach gets older, the cost of a policy does go up. Purchasing prior to January 1, 2017 will save you money!
– Vehicles with a model year of 2003 will become ineligible for coverage beginning January 1, 2017. The absolute last chance to secure coverage for a 2003 vehicle will be December 31st, 2016.
– Winterizing? We get it, it’s tough to invest in a policy when you’re not currently using the coach. However, waiting even 6 months can cause a significant increase in the cost of the policy, especially with the end of year rate change. This is even more important for 2003 vehicles, who will not be able to purchase a policy when Spring RVing arrives.
– We understand that the holidays are a very busy time, and it does take approx. 2-3 weeks to get a warranty in place. Choosing to purchase the policy before the crush of the holidays will ensure that you have ample time to complete an inspection and activate coverage with minimal stress.
