If you purchased a brand-new motorhome, RV, or travel trailer, you probably spent a good amount of money. Unfortunately, these large purchases are significant investments that could be lost if problems arise following delivery. The good news is that when you purchase a new recreational vehicle, federal and state laws are designed to protect your investment, and provide recourse, when your vehicle performs poorly. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (Lemon Law) entitles consumers to warranty coverage for vehicles manufactured by companies with household names, such as a Winnebago or a Fleetwood RV. It protects consumers from purchasing defective vehicles, helping them avoid getting stuck with a Lemon RV, trailer, or motorhome needing repeated repairs.
If you bought your RV from a dealership and discover it is defective within its warranty period, you should contact the dealer to see if they will repair or replace the vehicle. If they refuse, you may be able to file a Lemon Law claim against them for breach of the warranty to receive compensation for damages caused by their negligence.
