Motor Homes and Travel Trailers are considered vehicles by the Texas Department of Transportation. Please see the sections on this website as they provide general information on vehicles that are applicable to motor homes. However, motor homes present special problems because the warranties are usually very short and are divided into the motor portion and the home portion. This leads to the home warrantor pointing the finger for a particular problem at the motor warrantor and vice versa. There are also “gray areas” such as the electrical system which may be part of both. A bad motor home also involves a LOT of small problems that are usually considered cosmetic, (i.e. the shower door will not close) or that may be attributable to improper operation (i.e. the sink flooded because the gray water discharge was not properly set up.) Because motor homes are much more expensive and harder to resell than passenger vehicles, motor home manufacturers are generally less willing to repurchase a problem motor home than are manufacturers of passenger vehicles. If you have a bad motor home you may wish to consult an attorney to help you even if you have a simple problem.
The law discussed on this site is Texas law pertaining to Texas situations. NO advice is given for any transaction or situation that does not involve Texas law.
