Nine words RV buyers must insist be written on their sales contract

The 9 words are “We give buyer a 24 hour warranty against defects”. If you look in the small print on the contract, the dealer will ALWAYS include sold “as is” and leaves all the warranty work to the manufacturer. Using these words, it puts the dealer on the hook, for 4 years by federal law, by what is called “implied warranty”. This is law in most states by what the lawyer is claiming. So in other words by adding those 9 words, you have knocked out the as is, and the federal 4 year implied warranty federal law goes into effect. That is what this lawyer is stating. But in MY opinion, you’ll have to sue the dealership under this federal law to do any work on it for you. Isn’t it sad you have to have an attorney on retainer to buy an RV?


I have low band width in current location. Video without telling us the 9 words is completely useless.


These two guys have no credibility whatsoever.

Even when something good comes out from any of the RV brand manufacturers, or even Camping World, for that matter…they will spin it somehow to fit their agendas.

They are both RV brand haters extraordinaire and do nothing but stir the pot!


Video? Bandwidth restrictions for many RVers. How about text instead of video?


This would be a fascinating magic bullet if true, but I’m skeptical of enforcing it. Effectively you’re disabling the “as is” clause (even better if you actually crossed it off) , but the 24hr limit stands. It’s like saying agreeing to sell your car at all means you can change the price later.

I’m not a lawyer but there is something really strange in the law if this works at all. You can bet its a nightmare fight even if you win.

Me too. I don’t understand how getting the dealer to ‘promise’ a 24 hour warranty against defects automatically gets you four years (in some states).


This video was pretty much useless. I frequently couldn’t understand what the guy on the phone was saying. I went to his website and couldn’t find anything about writing those nine words on the sales contract, let alone what laws give those nine words a four year warranty if the dealer doesn’t comply with them. We need more, clearer information.
