The exceptions noted above disqualify many RV's including the OP's motorhome..
OK, it was never my intent to make this nitpicky or an argument about Arkansas. My intent was to point out that some people wrote RV's are never covered and all you need to do was google your state laws to see what they actually said. This posters reply to my statement just emphasizes another point to look at more than one site. I also very strongly advocate talking to an attorney in the state that is applicable. Now as far as this reply to my post. I did some more research. This is from a brochure from the Arkansas Attorney General about the Arkansas Lemon Law.
"Who Is Covered Under The Lemon
Any consumer who buys, leases, or licenses a
new motor vehicle in the State of Arkansas is
covered by the Lemon Law during the time
period described below.
The consumer is protected during the term of
the manufacturer’s warranty for up to two (2)
years after the original delivery date of the
vehicle OR for the first 24,000 miles, whichever
occurs last. If the vehicle is transferred to
someone else during this period, that owner or
person leasing the vehicle is also covered
under the Lemon Law.
IMPORTANT: The Lemon Law does NOT cover
the living quarters of mobile homes. The Lemon
Law does NOT cover vehicles over 10,000
pounds gross vehicle weight rating. However,
motor homes over 10,000 pounds gross vehicle
weight rating are covered."
It is easy to misread or understand things and then put them out as what you think is correct. I have done that before. If you read what the Atorney General says. The living Quarters of MOBILE HOMES are not coverred. Mobile homes are trailer houses that you live in often they are double wide and pulled my Semi Tractor trailer rigs and parked on a foundation of some kind. Now as you read at the bottom it says MOTOR HOMES over 10,000 pounds gross vehicle weight are covered. The Attorney General notes their is a difference between MOBILE HOMES and MOTOR HOMES. My Allegro Bus is a Motor home if i had bought it new then it would have been covered under the Arkansas lemon law.
When we read these laws and give advice we need to be careful what we read and say.
Once again if any doubt at all contact an attorney. If i have any questions at all about a matter that might be a legal issue I discuss them with an attorney licensed in the state of Arkansas.
