When RVs break down, repairs are expensive. ARW’s extended warranties protect RV owners from unexpected repair costs.
At a time when RV repair shops are facing month-long backlogs and staff shortages, many RV owners are turning to mobile RV mechanics to get repairs done in time.
The problem: Most RV warranty companies only accept mobile mechanic repairs when the RV is completely disabled. And they only pay a tiny portion of the service fee.
For new customers, ARW now accepts repairs by mobile RV mechanics regardless of whether the vehicle is disabled.
Need your fridge repaired and don’t want your vehicle to sit in the shop for a month? Call a mobile mechanic, and ARW will cover it. We’ll even cover up to $500 of the service fee per issue—which comes in handy if the mechanic needs to make multiple visits to complete repairs.
Whether your rig is a brand new motorhome, a 5th wheel, or a used trailer, when something breaks on your RV, the cost of repair can be astronomical. That’s why many travelers living the RV life think it’s a good idea to have an extended RV warranty, also known as a service contract, to protect themselves against costly repairs and enjoy their RV to the fullest on the open road.
Just as RVers want the best RV for their money, they also want the best coverage at the best price. That’s where America’s RV Warranty comes in. No other warranty provider delivers the quality customer service or solid RV warranty coverage that ARW offers.
Our coverage can be used with any licensed repair facility or mobile mechanic in the USA or Canada.
We’re partners with our administrator, so we work closely together to process claims and resolve issues.
Other warranty companies make you pay a third-party inspector before the warranty period, and can use this inspection against you later.
ARW provides reliable coverage that will last for the long-haul.
Your salesperson is your point of contact with ARW, ensuring transparency and hassle-free coverage.
If you sell your RV, you can use the coverage to boost the value and provide peace of mind for the buyer.
ARW pays full retail for brand new parts and covers diagnosis fees. That means less hassle and less out-of-pocket.
We deliver quality service where it counts, and our A+ rated Better Business Bureau (BBB®) business profile shows it.
An extended warranty protects recreational vehicle owners from unexpected costs when something breaks down.
RV repairs can be expensive. Our warranties offer peace of mind by covering those repair costs and getting you back on the road.
We cover all the essential mechanical components, systems, and appliances that keep your vehicle functioning, from the motor (we cover gas and diesel engines) and transmission to the septic, refrigerator, AC, water heater, fresh water system, slide-outs, and more.
An RV has all the potential issues of a house and a vehicle, so it's no surprise that even well-constructed units commonly suffer mechanical failure.
RV manufacturers don't have the ability to build every item themselves, so they purchase many of the systems and appliances from third party companies, which can cause quality control problems in even top-of-the-line models.
Approximately 30% of RVs will break down within two years of use. Almost 80% will need repairs by their fifth year of operation, and almost all will break down within ten years.
Here are a few quick reasons why we think we're the clear choice for RV owners:
While most companies only allow you to use a mobile mechanic when your RV is completely disabled, ARW lets you use a mobile mechanic any time, for any repair. Since mobile mechanics require a service fee, ARW will cover up to $500 of any reasonable service fees for a given issue.
America's RV Warranty provides coverage that is backed by an A-rated insurance company.
Beware of RV warranty companies who offer coverage backed by risk retention groups. These companies could go out of business and leave you without coverage or a refund. By choosing a company with coverage that is backed by an insurance policy, you can rest assured that you're covered for the long term.
The term "extended" means that the coverage lasts for much longer than a manufacturer's warranty, which is often a one year warranty.
Technically, extended warranties are not warranties—they are vehicle service contracts which cover repair costs in the event of a mechanical breakdown. Warranties can only be offered by RV manufacturers.
However, they function just like a warranty and cover the same things a warranty covers, so throughout the RV industry they are known as extended warranties.
A warranty and an RV insurance policy cover different issues. In simplest terms, insurance covers accidents and damage, while warranty policies offer a service plan to cover the costs of mechanical failures and breakdowns.
This means that RV insurance assists with major repairs caused by physical damage, but doesn't help travelers with normal, everyday breakdowns. A warranty/service contract helps RVers plan their travel budget by removing the fear of a large repair bill caused by a major mechanical failure.
Note: Depending on the RV class, a liability insurance policy may be required to operate the rig. Motorhomes require this coverage since they are motor vehicles, but travel trailers do not.

You might need coverage earlier than you think. Manufacturer's warranties cover different items for different lengths of time, and some RV manufacturers offer only limited warranties that cover the first year after the RV purchase.
By purchasing coverage while your manufacturer warranty is still in effect, you can lock in a better rate. Used RVs and older rigs cost significantly more to cover, so much so that owners often spend less total for more years of coverage when they buy early.
Our warranties cover all items for the duration of the plan, so purchasing while you still have manufacturer's coverage helps you avoid a lapse in coverage.
Keep in mind that many manufacturer warranties are not transferable, so even if your recreational vehicle is new to you, it may not come with a warranty. Ask the selling dealer to be sure.
Yes! Each warranty plan comes with a number of optional benefits for your RV, including things like roadside assistance, towing, and travel expense reimbursement.

While the mention of exclusions might sound sinister, exclusionary policies are actually the most complete protection plans available in the RV industry.
The term "exclusionary" refers to the way covered items are defined, and exclusionary plans are often defined in contrast to comprehensive coverage. Learn more about both types of coverage on our blog post about the different policy types.
The bottom line: either type of policy will help during a mechanical breakdown, and you choose should the one that fits your needs and your budget.
You can use any licensed repair facility or mobile mechanic in the United States or Canada—we'll even pay the service fee to the mobile mechanic.
Some people prefer to return to their dealership for repairs. That's fine with us, and it does not affect your service plan.
