Bout time! I never did understand - lemon laws exist for autos costing <$20K, yet a Motor Home costing $300K was unprotected.

I believe the lemon law in Texas is for all vehicles. I was having a problem with my levelers and after about the 4th time in the shop I enquired of the manager about lemon law information. He gave me a two sided paper on the lemon law. I don't have it with me, but generally after a reasonable amount of attempts, the owner needs to file a complaint in writing to the dealer and the manufacturer. They then have a reasonable time to fix the problem or replace the unit.

It was funny how after my inquiry I was contacted every day by the service manager on the status, and finally it was fixed.

I'm glad that they are trying to make it easier for everyone, and not just specific states.

The dealer in my case was only concerned about his dealership's reputation. If the lemon law is invoked, it is the manufacturer who eats the cost of replacement and the dealer gets another sale on the replacement. Funny how that works. But the dealer then looks bad in the eyes of the manufacturer for not being able to repair the problem.

It is what it is, and then it is what you make of it.

In Nevada there used to be a lemon law that covered all vehicles, new and used.. but, because of pressure from dealers and manufactures they changed it so that it only went up to a certain weight and of course RV's were then out.
