Is Your Motorhome a Lemon?

Yes, the California lemon law covers motorhomes and other towable recreational vehicles. It is important to discuss the particulars of your recreational vehicle with an attorney who understands the complexities of these vehicles.

This is because motorhomes and other towable products are covered by multiple, concurrent warranties. The lemon law is applied differently if for defects related to the chassis. The lemon law treats the chassis like an automobile. Whereas, the coach or box portion of the motorhome is covered by the same section of the lemon law as motorcycles, boats, kitchen appliances, etc.

Defects that we see with motorhomes and other towable recreational vehicles include, but are not necessarily limited to, the following:

  • Excessive days in the shop
  • Slide outs binding or damaging the floor
  • Leveling jacks failing to deploy or retract
  • Electrical problems and excessive battery drain
  • Fluid leaks
  • Generator
  • Water intrusion
  • Dog tracking
  • Excessive lean, or
  • Engine overheating
