Saw a 2011 Open Range for sale at a dealership. It stated that there was no warranty on the unit. Is that common when buying a used fifth wheel from a dealership?

The standard is a one year warranty from the date when sold new.

Used same as a used car, most don't offer a warranty. If it is new/unused then the manufacture warranty should be good from time of sale.
If the latter and no warranty is offered, I would be looking a big discount!!

I also found it strange but once sold all warranties are gone. Thats why I went ahead and got the GS extended warrrenty, if for nothing else a small piece of mind.

Extended warranties are available but not cheap-READ the fine print before you buy.

If the dealership is any good they usually will warranty it for 30 days. You can buy the extended warranty, they love selling them too you. I bought all of my campers but one as is used an had better luck with them then then only new one I bought.
We just got a Open Range on December 1st, also used an got only a 30 day warranty. We have the dealers word everything works and so far he is right. We can't wait for spring to put everything to the test. This =is the second camper we have gotten from him.

I've always bought used RVs from my area dealer and he has a 30 day warranty. Any current issues will pop up in that time frame.

If you purchase a extended warranty compare the list of items not covered vs items covered.

I received a 30 warranty on both used unit I purchased. I would look for another dealer if I did not receive any warranty.
