Normally the Johnson Law Firm only assists Iowa consumers. Defective recreational vehicle cases involving Winnebago are the exception, because Winnebago Industries is headquartered in Forrest City, Iowa. Send us an e-mail or give us a call regardless of where you live. Breach of warranty litigation against Winnebago can probably be brought in federal court in Iowa regardless of where the motorhome was purchased or where the RV owner lives.
It can be very discouraging for an RV enthusiast to purchase an expensive motorhome only to find out they have purchased a lemon. For many, it is not just the inconvenience of repairing the defective RV similar to a car, because having the recreational vehicle out of service for long periods of time can curtail long awaited vacations or consume precious retirement time. When the RV dealer will not or cannot repair the defective motorhome and the recreational vehicle manufacturer will not replace it, it is time to contact an attorney who knows warranty law pertaining to defective recreational vehicles.
RV owners do have rights. The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act (sometimes known as the federal lemon law) protects consumers where a recreational vehicle manufacturer such as Winnebago fails or refuses to honor its warranty. If you have a defective recreational vehicle, take the motorhome to the authorized dealer and give the dealer a reasonable opportunity to repair the vehicle. Keep good records as to the defects and time out of service. Complain in writing to the manufacturer. Save all correspondence and keep good records of contacts and correspondence. If your motorhome still is not repaired, contact the Johnson Law Firm for a free initial consultation.
The Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act allows a prevailing Plaintiff to recover attorney’s fees from the RV manufacturer. In most warranty cases the Johnson Law Firm agrees to take, we will take the risk on recovery of most, if not all, attorney’s fees.
