Recreational vehicles, motorhomes, and campers are great for touring the countryside and enjoying the outdoors, but they are also prone to defects and often subject to recalls. Unlike the auto industry, the RV market has a wider variety of manufacturers and vendors, and its products are subject to much less federal and state regulations and oversight.
Compounding the problem is the fact that most RV dealers provide poor service and lack the technical knowledge they need to correctly diagnose and repair defects. Again, in contrast to the auto industry, the RV market has very few repair technicians who have received extensive training and certification to properly service the vehicles the dealers sell.
While the Lemon Laws of some states cover the vehicle portion of some types of RVs (for example, the engine, chassis, and driver/passenger cabin), the living quarters of RVs, motorhomes and campers are generally exempt from the protections afforded by state Lemon Laws.
Timothy Abeel & Associates represents the owners of RVs, motorhomes and campers in:
- Lemon Law claims (where applicable)
- Federal and state consumer protection claims
- Breach of warranty claims and litigation against RV, motorhome and camper manufacturers and their dealers
Given the range of possible legal avenues for consumer claims and compensation, it takes an experienced consumer protection attorney to enforce the rights of RV, motorhome and camper owners.

How We Handle RV Cases
We have a well-earned reputation for holding RV manufacturers and dealers accountable for violations of their warranties and helping our clients obtain the compensation they deserve.
We will conduct a thorough evaluation of the facts of your case and carefully explain your rights as a consumer and your various options for achieving a good result.
Depending on the circumstances, you may be able to recover damages up to three times the amount of your actual losses plus reasonable attorneys’ fees and costs.
YOU WILL NEVER BE RESPONSIBLE FOR ATTORNEYS’ FEES AND OUR OTHER EXPENSES UNLESS WE SUCCESSFULLY RESOLVE YOUR CASE AND GET YOU COMPENSATION.
