The manufacturer said the lemon law doesn’t apply my travel trailer. Is this true?
Absolutely not. Your travel trailer is considered a consumer good under the California lemon law, and as such, you are guaranteed certain rights. If a manufacturer, through it’s authorized repair facilities, cannot conform your travel trailer to warranty (ie. make it work the way it should), the manufacturer is obligated to either repurchase or replace your travel trailer. This means they can choose whether to replace your travel trailer with a same or similar model, or they can refund your down payment, payments you’ve made, and pay off your loan. If the manufacturer refuses to do the right thing and offer to repurchase or replace your lemon, you may even be entitled to a civil penalty up to two times the purchase price of the trailer as well.
