Teton Can't Still be in Business
by: Anne

How can Teton still be in business when I phoned the number on website and it's no longer in service. Even the service number listed just rings and rings and rings....no answering, no message, nothing. Are they or are they not still around. They make one fine 5th.

3rd Party Extended Warranty Comes Through
by: Wes & Kathy at Scrapbooks

With so many RV manufacture's out of business, the 3rd party extended warranty is a must. We just bought our Rexhall Aerbus a year ago and spent the extra cash to get the premium warranty offered by our dealer.

One year later, we just had all the small problems fixed while we were back home for a visit. Generator Oil Leak, Washer/Dryer not drying, Charge controler sometimes not charging batteries fully, CO2 detector quit and water leak in the toilet valve.

Total repair bill was more than $3000.00 and our part was $150.00 (two deductibles - two shops)

Still one more year left on the extended... I think it was more than worth it.

RV Warranty Information
by: Don

Any RV from manufacturers who have gone out of business are referred to as orphan RVs. If you are considering purchasing one of these because they are being offered at rock bottom prices now, I'd be careful to get all warranty information in writing.

If you already own an orphan RV contact the manufacturer and see if they are still honoring the warranty contract.

Be aware there is a difference between the manufacturer's warranty, and an extended warranty or service plan through a third-party. If your purchased a third-party or extended warranty and the company is still in business they should be honoring repairs.
