As a past RV owner that did his homework, asked questions, read every form before signing, I'm here to say that one question I didn't think to ask was "Has there been any warranty work on the RV"? Camping Worlds profit my loss. I fought long and hard, wrote letters, made pleading phone calls and have realized that my health both physical and mental needs to rest. RV dealerships should have RVFax as do car dealers when buying a car and the consumer shouldn't have to ask for it. Warranty work is one of the money makers for dealerships I have found. Are they causing damages to an RV so that they can make their monthly quotas, so-called "trained" RV Techs causing damages for a paycheck? Don't buy, rent!

Brand new poster alleging criminal activity by CW? Poorly written. No facts. You do need a physical and mental rest.

Your post makes no sense to me. What difference does it make if it had warranty work before you bought it?

If the unit had prior warranty work done on it for whatever part and the part malfunctioned again warranty will kick it back because it was already done. Think about it. Why would a brand new RV on the lot need any warranty work on it????

Because they are not perfect. Just like a new car needs warranty work sometimes.

Make money on warranty work???

If they did we wouldn't have to fight to get warranty work done, it is a money loser. You really think the factory is going to pay $135 an hour?? That's the last posted price I saw in a CW. (also why I fix it my self)

Warranty work is a money loser for the dealer. They only do it because it is required by the manufacturer to enable them to sell their product. I'm sure that there isn't a dealer who would love to never have to do any warrant work.
As to whether or not any warranty work has been preformed on a unit: what difference does it make?

Actually not true. While under the warranty period the item would be covered no matter how many times it failed.
As to why it would need warranty work; parts fail even new ones. After bouncing around who knows where a flaky new part fails and needs replacing. The dealer does it before sale(which would be unusual but I guess it happens) to make it ready for sale.

Also. remember. it was in a 70 MPH Cat 7 earthquake on it's way to the dealer.
