What has been the dealer and manufacturers attitude in resolving these problems? Any reputable dealer or manufacturer should be interested in preserving the reputation of their brand by taking care of problems. Involving a lawyer will result in drawn out negotiations with more lawyers and cost a fortune and you still won't have a coach to enjoy. I would push hard for exchanging the coach for an equivalent or as close to equivalent as possible through direct negotiations. I have seen some pretty interesting problems solved by contacting a publication such as Motor Home Magazine who seem to have some clout in intervening for you.

I live in AZ and our lemon law is much more restrictive. I can recommend contacting the following Arizona attorney. As I recall he is licensed in a few other states but I don't know which ones.

Is there a reason you won't say what the make and model of coach is?

Going through this now in TX. Contact me if you want a recommendation (based on current experience).

I'm told:
1) Exercising the Lemon law may not be in our best interest and is unusual in the RV space. Why? if the RV is branded as a lemon, it impacts the manufacturers ability to resell the unit.
2) Based on above, most manufacturers are much more likely to provide a "trade" offer at original cost and replace with a new unit, agree to fix issues + compensation, and/or extend factory warranty.

If it's a lemon issue, starting the process is fairly easy and you have to start it within 6 months of warranty expiration. I'm told that RVs get much more lax treatment in terms of lemon law rules - so you probably need to have a particularly ugly example....

Yeah, it's kinda sad that the OP posted twice for help then took off with barely a thanks and no follow up. Whatever his outcome, the information he could have provided may have helped others finding themselves in similar situations.
