Op back, I agree with never hire a lawyer for a case like this, it will always get you less in the end.

Even though I had a dozens of problems with this camper whenever I have spoken to customer service I have been treated fairly. Sometimes I didn't get all I wanted but they made the attempt to square things away.

And I'm sure, in the end I will get a fair shake, I hope ??

OP, you don't say what the issues were and would be interested to know, unless you can't. Depending on what issues, can you get a professional inspection and report done?

We had a serious issue on a previous TT that we discovered the day after we owned it. Initially they came back and said there was nothing wrong. Got an inspection done by a gov't certified facility and sent the report to the dealer & manufacturer. Within days they said they would replace it with another one without the problem "part" that stock OEM had at NO cost to us. Was actually more than a "part" that was no good and don't want to get into details.

Depending on what the exact situation is, you could be asked to sign a non-disclosure agreement. Manufacturers replacing entire TTs happens more often than you'd think because of the NDAs.

Personally I would not want a Keystone. Friends of ours have one and I'm aghast at the bad workmanship. Met a Keystone owner in a CG. Theirs leaked like a sieve from day one. Delear tried to fix it but couldn't. Got sent to the factory who only made it worse. Keystone TTs I've seen at RV shows have had doors on cabinets almost falling off and drawers all ****-eyed. Quality is just not there. You will find Keystone owners that love theirs to death though.

Problem is, if you were to go buy another brand TT, this is not a good time of year to be shopping because prices will be on the rise for the upcoming season. Not knowing more details, it's hard to make suggestions on what to do.

My unpopular opinion... If the offer is no where near generous, I'd hire an automotive lemon law attorney to represent your interests.


You must have DEEP pockets!

AT $200.+ an hour, plus clerical charges. PLUS he/she is "on the clock" even if your case were delayed.

Depends on what they offer. If they offer to replace it, awesome. If they offer trade in value, not so awesome. The difference could be tens of thousands of dollars. Even at $200 an hour, that's a lot of hours.

Friend of mine did this with an auto buy back. OEM essentially made an offer that matched auction value. He hired an attorney, who wrote a letter. They countered with full price paid, minus some very minor mileage charge.

I suggested an auto lemon law attorney, because while most (all?) states lemon law only applies to non commercial auto's, they do know the law.

Trailer companies aren't going to want to pay for attorneys either. They been through this before, they know exactly how much this is going to cost them. Sweetening the pot from an attorney letter is not unheard of.

You will do far more "damage" by threatening to go to social media than a lawyer. I'm not recommending you start out with that but it's something to keep in the back of your mind.
