RV Lemon Laws

Purchasing an RV is a big and important decision, and represents a substantial layout of funds on your part. If you have recently purchased an RV and it is defective, however, you could be looking for options under consumer protection laws to pursue compensation. 

Sadly, thousands of RVs that are purchased every single year end up malfunctioning and can cause consumers significantly in terms of downtime and overall repair costs. 

Buyers Are Protected Under Warranty Laws 

Both federal and state lemon laws can provide an avenue for remedies so you can avoid losing your investment. Even in the event that the lemon law in your state partially or totally excludes recreational vehicles, as a consumer, you can still initiate a legal claim under the federal Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act. 

This statute provides for financial support to consumers who have had to cope with defective vehicles not covered by states. Loan payments and consumer down payments can be pursued successfully with RVs such as Class A, B, and C motor homes, fifth-wheel trailers, and travel trailers.

RV Lemon Laws FAQs

  • Lemon Law Provisions

    You need a Magnuson-Moss breach-of-warranty attorney who has significant experience going up against large product manufacturers that might be taking advantage of consumers. Every lemon law claim involves potential pitfalls, but cases involving recreational vehicles can be more complicated because many state lemon laws treat these vehicles differently than trucks, cars, SUVs, or vans. 

    In fact, the majority of state lemon laws in the United States completely exclude RVs from coverage, which means that the alternative strategy of pursuing compensation under Magnuson-Moss is your best course of action. Certain state laws do cover leased or purchased recreational vehicles, so you'll want to sit down with your consumer protection attorney to be sure. 

    Some vehicular lemon laws will cover defects only in the chassis, whereas others limit coverage to non-living areas. You need to analyze the specifics of what is covered in your warranty and attempt to get these problems repaired. Most RV consumers need to give the manufacturer a reasonable opportunity to fix defects before they can initiate litigation. 

    This repair opportunity typically includes no more than three or four repair attempts in most states, but the number can be limited when serious safety issues are involved. 

  • Getting Legal Help With a Breach-of-Warranty Claim

    If the manufacturer has been given a reasonable opportunity to repair your vehicle and the defects are still present, now is a good time to take your case to an experienced lawyer to discuss the next steps. From being unable to travel in the RV to being prevented from renting it due to safety or breakdown concerns, this is a serious issue that affects your life in many ways. You shouldn’t have to pay the price for defects. 

    Remember, having your own log of evidence is crucial for presenting your lemon law claim to an attorney. You should keep all correspondence, complaints, and records of repairs organized.

  • Magnuson-Moss Requires the Manufacturer to Pay for Your Case

    The fee-shifting provision of the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act requires the manufacturer to cover reasonable attorneys’ fees if the plaintiff wins their case. As a result, our attorneys at Morgan & Morgan will work with you for free. Our fee comes from the manufacturer if we win your case.

Unbelievably organized, responsive and probably the most effective process-oriented group of people I've ever seen. Their preparation for mediation and trial is beyond comprehensive. Across two cases and 3 years, not once did anything fall between the cracks. Everyone I came into contact with exemplifies professionalism; they quickly resolved insurance issues and spent time educating me about everything affecting my cases.

It has been an amazing experience with your law firm. I will be happy to refer any of my family and friends to your law firm. I am very thankful to Sabrina Thornburg and Andrew Felix for everything that they have done on my case. Sabrina kept in touch with me to let me know how everything was going and I am very happy with the service that she and Andrew provided. Your slogan really is true, you are for the people. Thank you.

Slip and Fall
I was very happy with the communication between the legal counsel and myself. If I had any questions I could leave it if not directly and I would have an answer within 24 hours by either email or a courtesy phone call. Also, the quick resolution of the matter was something I appreciate very much. Needless to say the result was more than expected.

I originally hired a different law firm after being involved in a multi-car accident on the interstate, but after a few conversations, arguments, and showing me other cases were more important than mine, I called and hired Morgan & Morgan! That was one of the best decisions I've made as an adult! Not only have they been in contact with me, but they listened and found mistakes in the crash report that the officer didn't want to admit to! I'm beyond thankful!
