Hello everyone.... my husband and I are just about ready to pull the trigger and become full timers...... We don't have an RV right now... have owned one in the past.

Open Range 3X is a top contender...but we have a question about the warrenty. Does Open Range (Highland) warrenty cover full time use?

If not, are there extended warrenties available?

I searched the forum but couldn't find an answer to these questions.

We had our unit for the two years before we went full time so the warranty question really didn't apply at the time. We went full time in December 2014 and our warranty expired August 2014. After that we know for a fact that the folks at the service center where we have had repairs done (after warranty and out of pocket) know we live in ours full time and they have been more than accommodating.

We were told by one of the warranty persons last year that the reason most rv manufacturers don't recommend full time in the units is the "excessive" where and tear. When things don't hold up as well as if you only used it on a part-time basis people get unusually upset with things (such as furniture; carpet; etc.) Since it not a stick built house be prepared to replace those things along the way unless you take extremely good care of them.

Good luck in your full time!

We bought our OR 4 years ago as declared full-timers. No issues with the 2 year warranty. Our Mesa, AZ OR dealer let us stay overnight near the facility for necessary repairs or routine service. The factory service center in Shipshewana, IN has gone overboeard to keep us on the road before or after the annual rally.

I also have had repairs at various dealerships and the service center with the full knowledge that we lived in our unit fulltime.

We just purchased a used Open Range from a dealership and got a 4-year, unlimited miles extended warranty. This is the company: https://www.pdsadm.com/preserverv/default.aspx
