The Good Sam Club Extended Service Plan has paid millions of dollars in repairs for RV mechanical breakdowns over the years, and now that protection is more important than ever, according to a press release from the Ventura, Calif.-based club.


With the increasing number of RV manufacturers closing their doors or filing for bankruptcy, the Good Sam Club, the world’s largest RV owners community, has expanded the protection available from the Good Sam Extended Service Plan to include the time normally covered by the manufacturer.

“We still repair or replace any of the thousands of parts of your RV we have covered for years, but now that coverage starts even during the original manufacturer’s warranty term, in the event the manufacturer is unable to honor their warranty,” according to a news release.

This benefit is now available exclusively through participating Good Sam Authorized Dealers or through the Good Sam Club for anyone in the market for a new or used RV.

The new program was launched in May.

This is yet another new wrinkle from the Good Sam Club which has been providing extended service coverage for more than 12 years, noted Scott Blanc, vice president and general manager of the Good Sam Extended Service Plan Division, part of Affinity Ventures.

“Heretofore, typical coverage excluded the time the vehicle was under the manufacturer’s warranty,” he explained. “We have closed that gap and provide coverage back to Day 1 for vehicles that no longer have protection from the manufacturer.”

There is no additional cost to the consumer, Blanc noted.
