You might be surprised to learn that the California Lemon Law is not just limited to cars and trucks. Other registered vehicles, including boats and trailers, are also covered. Recreational vehicles are also subject to the protections of the California Lemon Law, which is important to anyone who owns one.
RVs are often far more expensive than a car or a truck. Some consumers spend hundreds of thousands of dollars on a brand new, fully equipped RV. When you make a purchase this large, you have the right to expect that your RV will be safe.
So what are your options if your RV turns out to be a lemon? Owners can return vehicles that qualify as lemons under the law full refund of any down payments and monthly loan payments that they made. You may also require the manufacturer to replace the lemon with a vehicle that is as good or better than the lemon. Finally, you can accept a settlement and keep the vehicle.

You have the right to be reimbursed for many different types of costs. These can include your sales tax and registration fees, any repair bills that the manufacturer has not already covered, and any incidental costs you paid because your vehicle was a lemon. (A common example is a tow truck bill.)
Your specific reimbursement will depend on what you choose to do with your vehicle. For example, if you return the vehicle for a full refund, you will be entitled to reimbursement for any registration fees you paid. But if you keep the vehicle, you will still be using the registration, so the manufacturer will not reimburse this cost. Your incidental costs will also depend on your situation. If you got stuck out of town, for example, you might have a hotel bill.
You could also have a repair bill from a local shop because you could not make it to a dealership. All of these costs are subject to reimbursement in a fair settlement for your lemon law claim.
