We established the group RV Horror Stories a few months ago and it has grown to nearly 11,000 members. The idea is to provide a forum for RVers who bought seriously defective RVs to tell their “horror” stories.
We hope that as the group and its influence grows, these people will get some respect and prompt action from dealers and manufacturers getting their RVs fixed. As is, far too many RVers are stuck with lemons that remain in repair shops for several months on end (or longer) — and we’re talking about brand-new units.
Because of the group, some members have learned about RV lemon law lawyers and have contacted them to help resolve their issues. We are happy to report that just recently one RVer reached an out-of-court settlement with an RV manufacturer. It was because of RV Horror Stories that this happened. And, FYI, for a list of helpful resources, including contact information for RV lemon lawyers, click here.
Here’s one of the latest member reports. Please leave a comment below or go to RV Horror Stories and leave one there (you’ll need to be a Facebook member to do that).
The member’s report:
We purchased a 2017 Weekend Warrior from the RV factory in Wakarusa, Indiana, now we have a dealer telling us that due to the manufacturing defect the roof needs replaced at a cost of $12,000! A $100,000 RV and the roof needs replaced was the response from the RV factory.
If you have a defective RV, please consider joining the RV Horror Stories group. You need not be a member of Facebook to read the messages on the group page, only to post or comment.
