A Louisiana man is suing a Baton Rouge RV dealership, alleging defects and negligent repairs to his vehicle.

Kenny Bartram filed a lawsuit on Oct. 22 in U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against Thor Motor Coach, Inc. The R.V. Shop Inc., and Bank of America, alleging defects and negligent repairs related to a purchased RV.

According to the complaint, on Nov. 14, 2014, Bartram purchased a new 2015 Thor Four Winds model 35SB from the R.V. Shop in Baton Rouge for $128,000 (more than $300,000 with finance charges). The suit says there were several defects with the vehicle, including water leaks and the batteries not holding a charge.

The lawsuit states Bartram sent the RV to the defendants for repairs under warranty on several occasions, but the issues still persisted.

Bartram seeks the purchase price of the RV and all other costs associated with the vehicle, rescission of sale, all costs of suit, and other relief deemed appropriate by the court. He is represented by attorney Richard C. Dalton of Mandeville.

U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana case number 2:15-cv-05399-JCZ-MBN.
