Thanks Larry. I guess my wife would love the extra storage, but she has learned to get along with what we have now which isn't much. I am looking at the 31RLTS, have to keep the weight down as much as possible. My Truck is a Ford F-350 SRW with a V-10. It is a 2000 model but I only have 64,000 miles on it so I can't see getting a new Truck. All the new Campers seem to have Stone counters and Porcelin toilets. For all the extra weight they can add. My Plastic toilet in my designer just went bad a month ago and I put in another plastic one. Plastic is a lot lighter. Gross weight for my Designer is 13,000 lbs. New ones are all 14,000 to 15,000 or more. Have a guy at the camp ground where we are now in Texas with a 99 V-10 F250, he is towing a camper much heavier than mine. But I need to keep it close as I can to what I have now

Thanks for your reply Smokerbill! That is what I read before, I guess it would just be up to Jayco whether they would step up tp the plate or not! As for some ones reply about the carpet being worn, this camper is now 10 years old and we've spent a lot of time in it. Grand kids have spilled on it etc. and the carpet looks great yet. So I think that would not make a great difference. Just would depend on if they want a reason to deny coverage and save money!

Thanks again to every one who replied.

HAPPY CAMPING TO ALL!!

I'm considering purchasing a motorhome and registering/titling it it under a LLC but will not be using it as a rental or a mobile office. According to the "What Is Not Covered" section of the Warranty, I would not be covered. Does anyone have any experience with this situation?

Why would you want to do this?

Why not? There are many good reasons for this that I won't get into. Check with your CPA.

When I purchase a car or truck through an LLC, the warranty is not voided. If I buy a motorhome through an LLC and the usage is no more intensive than if I bought it and used it under my own name, what's the problem?

NEman: you brought the LLC into the discussion. Spend a moment and explain a few if the benefits to you with a vehicle or an RV.

I am a CPA, and can think of NO reason to put a PERSONAL RV asset into an LLC.

It can be used as a method of tax and fee avoidance, although some (possibly including the person's home state) might consider it a form of tax evasion. Not saying that that's NEeman's intention, nor saying that it's a good or bad idea. It's just something I read on the internet, so it must be true...

There are no liability issues that an LLC would save you from unless the asset is used in the pursuit of income (legitimately used in a business). A personal asset like an RV is insured to protect its owner from liability issues associated with its use.

As for the Montana LLC thing, sorry, but as a licensed CPA, I would not knowingly work with a client in one of these schemes. It is straight up tax evasion, no doubt, not to be confused with tax avoidance (the difference being that there is no other reason for this action than the evasion of a legal tax). I worked WAY too hard for my license to risk it and my good name on something like this.

Montana LLC's for RV's are coming under increased scrutiny in many states. I understand that if you are pulled over in California with a Ca drivers lic and a Montana registered RV it gets impounded till the taxes are paid on it.
NOW as far as warranty.. an RV registered to an LLC would be used as a rental and that voids the warranty..
