Is my RV a lemon?
If you live in Canada and think you have a lemon RV then the odds are you probably do! Have you experienced repeat trips to the nearest authorized repair shop? Was it dozens or hundreds of miles away? Have you had repeated breakdowns with your RV?has your RV been subjected to multiple repair attempts for the same defects? Have you lost campground deposits because your RV would not run right or operate right? If you have to pay for repairs because a factory dealer was too far away or would not do the work? And you probably have a lemon.
Is there a Canada lemon law that covers my RV?
No, but if your RV was made in the United States, then the US federal lemon law may give you legal rights when your new RV bought in Canada turns sour and the selling dealer fails to fix it within a reasonable number of attempts or in a reasonable amount of time. This US lemon law applies to all Recreational vehicles – class A, class B, class C motorhomes, towable travel trailers, toy haulers, fifth wheel trailers, and park model units.
