So we just bought a brand new 2021 coachmen leprechaun 300BH two weeks ago. They had us stay in the RV overnight to make sure there wasn't anything wrong with it. So the radio know wasn't working and all night I could swear I was hearing large water drops in the wall of the RV as it was raining. But thought maybe I just didn't know what I was hearing because I haven't ever owned an RV before. The next morning my wife saw something on the ceiling on the other side of the RV from where I was hearing the drops and showed the sales rep, I was sure it was water damage. He said no it's not it's just adhesive seepage. So we said ok he knows what he's talking about. Well I had a friend look at it and he confirmed it is water damage. I called the service department and they confirmed it was a leak as well. So here is the issue now they say they can't get me taken care of for up to 6 weeks, now we're selling our house and won't have a place to stay while the RV gets fixed. I'm at a loss Buying a brand new RV should not have felt this shitty.

How long ago did you buy it, some State have a so called lemon law, which gives you the right to return it.
Either way, a Lawyer would be very helpful.

Mold and mildew is an issue. If it was on the lot then this wasn't the first time it leaked. Cover it with a tarp. Try to get the dealer to exchange units if they refuse try to be it in for repair earlier.

I understand the dealer is saying they can’t fix it for 6 weeks but the manufacturer delivered the RV in that condition. Go to the manufacturer too.

It was built brand new from coachmen. We actually had to wait for a month before we got it in from the manufacturer. I am supposed to take it in on teusday to have them look at it.

In most states, lemon laws do not apply to RVs.

What you've experienced is not fun, but unfortunately is not exactly rare either. RV quality assurance has a long way to go before it reaches economy car consistency.

Get a lawyer RFN and launch a law-suit. Do NOT wait for them to to get their act together.

Well lots of pointed opinions here, but put it in perspective. It’s a RV leak not cancer so deal with it and don’t let yourself get jerked around by the dealer. Not the end of the world. Not worth losing sleep over, yet anyways. Just get it fixed.

Wouldn't that cost a hell of a lot of money. I can look into it though I guess protecting a 80k purchase.
