Buying an RV (recreational vehicle) or motor home is a great way to experience the great outdoors. A road trip utilizing a “fifth wheel” camper is fun, exciting and part of how families create lasting bonds within the family unit. But owning an RV, motor home or other types of campers can come at a high cost.
If that camper that you own has a manufacturer’s defect, it can create a deadly situation for you and your family. The California Lemon Laws apply to any consumer product such as a car, truck, as well as campers, RVs and other recreational units used by the general public. If you know that your RV, motor home or camper has a manufacturer’s defect, you can call us today at the Guardian Lemon Law Group at 888.341.8537 to discuss your case. We are here to help you to get the recovery compensation that you need, when you have a dangerous safety issue related to a manufacturer’s defect affecting your RV, motor home or camper.
What Is a 5th Wheel?
A camper is commonly referred to today as a fifth wheel, because years ago in the 1900s, there was a company with that reference in their name. In general, the hitch used for campers is called a fifth wheel, before the kingpin tools were used to hitch campers as are used today.
Either way, a camper is a fifth wheel, camper, or other type of recreational vehicle, and they are all covered by the California Lemon Laws if they are sold with manufacturer’s defects. The manufacturer of RVs, motor homes and campers are expected to build and make these units to perfection. No one buys a recreational camping vehicle expecting that it is going to be a dud, a lemon or riddled with manufacturer’s defects. If your recreational camping vehicle or unit does have manufacturer’s defect, then that is the fault of the manufacturer.

What Are the Different Types of RVs, Motor Homes and Campers?
There are many different types of RVs, motor homes and commercially manufactured campers. The Lemon Laws will cover new RVs, motor homes and campers, but are not going to cover a homemade conversion of a camper that you put in your car yourself. For example, if you buy some planks, some bedding and some cooking stoves and set that up in the back of your vehicle, you are not going to be covered for a “camper” manufacturer’s defect under the Lemon Laws.
But the Lemon Laws do completely cover new RVs, motor homes and campers, and all types are under the umbrella of the law, including:
- Class A – The largest motor homes, usually built on a bus chassis, weighing up to 30,000 pounds.
- Class B – These are van conversions, weigh 6,000 to 8,000 pounds.
- Class C – These are made on a van chassis, weigh 10,000 to 12,000 pounds.
