I know some of the Heartland lines (Bighorn, Big Country and Landmark) specifically advertise their warranty covers full-timers. Many manufacturers seem to have a "don't ask - don't tell" policy. A few specifically state their units are not intended for full time use and doing so will void the warranty. I can't remember which makes fall into the last category, but I think Montana is one of them.

DRV, though I'm not certain on their Tradition (base line, not as robust as the mobile or elite suites. Still better than most) as well as Evergreen's Lifestyle line are rated at full time. I'm quite certain Redwood is as well, with a two-year warranty.

Really check out the DRV's. After months and months of research, those seem to be the cat's meow. Or the shizzle. Whatever the kids are saying these days...

We are having some warrantee work done on our Alfa Gold by Lifestyle. They know we are living in it full time and it is not a problem. They are paying for a mobile mechanic to come to us instead of us having to go back to our dealer.

Believe it or not Jayco will not warrant Full Time use. I was quite surprised when I got the owners manual for the Jayco Precept. I even called Jayco and questioned them about it and they were quite emphatic that there units were not designed for full time use. Since then I have shied away from anything Jayco.
