Is Your RV or Motorhome a Lemon?
Your consumer rights may be protected by the California Lemon Law if you have purchased or leased an RV or a motor home that has any type of defect which may it unsafe to operate. The law does not cover RVs or motor homes in the same way that it covers vehicles but it does provide consumer protection for certain components of your RV or motor home. There are many different RV manufacturers and due to the large variety, each manufacturer may have many different defects that may qualify your RV as a lemon.
RV & Motorhome Lemon Laws in California
The law in California is very specific indicating protection for “new motor vehicles.” How does the law specifically define “new motor vehicles”? In addition to passenger vehicles, there are certain components of RVs or motor homes that may fall under this specific classification. The law may provide protection for certain sections of the RV. For example, it may provide coverage for the chassis, chassis cab and the propulsion system contained in your recreational vehicle. The reason being is that these components act as the motor vehicle portion of the RV.
The living quarters within an RV or motor home are not necessarily covered by the law. There are though some provisions of the Song-Beverly Consumer Warranty Act that may provide some type of coverage. You may be able to seek compensation for defects in that area only if the living quarters of your RV or motor home come with a written factory warranty directly from the manufacturer.
RV and Motor Home Manufacturers Covered
The California Lemon Law covers many different makes and models of RVs and motorhomes. This models include Class A, B and C motor homes as well as those RVs and motorhomes that are considered to be fifth wheel trailers and travel trailers. Some of these manufacturers include but are not limited to the following:
- American Coach
- Blue Bird
- Country Coach
- General Coach
- Keystone RV
- Viking RV
- Weekend Warrior
In order to possibly have a successful case your new RV or motor home must have a substantial defect impeding its safety, inhibiting its safe proper use or decreasing its value in order to qualify as a lemon. This is stated in the California Lemon Law. There are many defects that can fall into these categories. The manufacturer is allowed a certain number of repair attempts to fix the problem with the defective RV/motor home Here are some of the more common defects which include but are not limited to:
- Brake issues/malfunction
- Cargo, capacity or weight specifications issues
- Chassis defects
- Electrical issues
- Engine failure and/or malfunction
- Frame defects
- Interior design flaws
- Steering problems
- Transmission failure and/or malfunction
- Water leaks in the roof or siding
If your RV or motor home is affected by some of the aforementioned defects, there is a possibility that it may qualify as a lemon. There are also other criteria that it must meet under the law. These include the need for repairs on four or more occasions for the same manufacturer defect or being inoperable for at least 30 days.

Purchasing an RV is a big investment. Now, starting an RV lemon law case looked like an even bigger task for my family and I. Starting this process with my recreational vehicle seemed very intimidating at first. My fears were calmed when I decided to reach out to Scott Law Group. It was the best decision I could have made to take care of the issues that I was having with my motor home. Christian and his staff made the process so smooth and simple, no stress at all. That was very important for me because I did not want to put my family though a stressful process. The legal team handled all the details and contacted me a few times after the case was started. Whenever I had a concern or had a question, someone was always available to answer, whether it was via a phone call or an email. When the case came to a close, my family and I were quite surprised. The manufacturer agreed to settle on more than we thought we would be able to get. We are so thankful to have had Scott Law Group help us. We now intend to take a family vacation and maybe sometime in the future we will think about buying another RV to use for family outings. Hopefully next time around we have better luck with our purchase. My family and I highly recommend Scott Law Group to anyone dealing with an RV or motor home lemon issue. They are the best!
