Illinois top court ruled a couple CAN sue and get their money back plus damages from the sale of an RV with an undisclosed defect. Every RV sold has something wrong with it and if all buyers can sue....

Hard part is proving the seller knew about the defect.
Same issue exists for trading regular homes.

You'll pay more alright. But not for quality. It'll be for any potential litigation.

Very true, you'll just pay a lot more for the lawyer fees. Illinois has a history of making things cheaper for the consumer, NOT. Look at fuel and tag fee's that have increased.

Sounds like they were yanked around and it literally took an excessive amount of time to address.

Similar to automobiles, if they fix things in a timely manner, it's not covered by lemon laws but if it gets crazy, it is.

If there is any impact, it will not be to manufacturers but to Illinois dealers. It's not that far to drive to Wisc or Indiana. If Illinois gets silly, manufacturers will simply mark up any unit sold to Illinois dealers enough to cover the risk...net result is Illinois loses dealers.

Posted this a week or longer ago.

Only some states have adopted UCC and of those states some have only adopted certain articles of UCC and may not have adopted the article relating to retail sales. The case stated has just been ruled on, there are appeals coming, it took years.


It's not going to be some nationwide fall back on catch all for the consumer any time soon, if ever. The RV Industry will simply circle the wagons and send out the lobbyists with pockets full of cash like is done to address any pending Lemon Law legislation. They probably have already done so and will pump cash to the dealer mentioned provided by both the RVIA and RVDA for appeals. No mention of this ruling BTW in any of the RV Industry trade publications, go figure, so it evidently got the attention of the legal dept.

Well, unlimited liability put the brakes on small airplane manufacturing in the 80s and 90s. Cessna and Piper virtually halted production of 2 and 4 seat planes for 15 years until they got tort relief. The new aircraft aren't that much better than the old ones, and some say they're worse. They're certainly more expensive.
