Motor Home Problems on the Rise

The economic downturn caused the motor home industry to go stagnant. Auto Fraud Legal Center saw several manufacturers and dealership file for bankruptcy protection or go out of business. Now that the economy has recovered motor home manufacturers are once again beginning to sell their product. You should know that motor home dealers are subject to the same financing disclosure requirements as car dealers. Once again, our attorneys are beginning to see that the motor home dealers are failing to adhere to their responsibilities to make the mandated financial disclosures. These dealers are proving that they are as unscrupulous as car dealers. Find our more about our most recent case after the jump.

Our lemon law attorneys have just accepted a case against Thor and the selling dealer for failing to install seals on the slide out. Even though one dealership was an authorized Thor repair facility, it refused to work on the motor home, and ignoring the fact that poisonous carbon monoxide fumes and biting insects were filling the coach. We have also learned that the selling dealership steered this particular, defective motor home to our clients.

Typically motor home dealers require you to keep your motor home parked on their lot for weeks, if not months, at a time while waiting for parts, which is wrong and prevents you from using your motor home. Here, Thor’s authorized repair facility flat out refused to service the motor home.
Few attorneys will accept cases involving motor homes. We do! It is important to hire an attorney who has experience navigating the complex world of motor home litigation. This is because you frequently face warranty issues from both the end manufacturer, such as Tiffin, Forest River, or Jayco, as well as the chassis manufacturer, such as Ford or Freightliner. If you have problems with the generator, slide out, or leveling jacks, you may also have to address warranty coverage issues involving the corresponding component part manufacturer, such as Onan, Power Gear or HWH.

We also have experience in addressing the implications of an out of state delivery and how this may impact your rights under California and federal laws that protect you. Perhaps the selling dealer failed to mention this fact to you.
