NEW ORLEANS — A buyer is suing the manufacturer of a recreational vehicle and the dealer where the RV was purchased, citing alleged breach of the warranty contract.
Georgia resident Curtis D. Cagle filed a complaint on Oct. 19, in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Louisiana against defendants Forest River Inc. and Dixie Motors LLC, alleging that they violated the Magnuson-Moss Warranty Act.
According to the complaint, the plaintiff purchased a new 2014 Prime Time Sanibel 3050 on Nov. 3, 2014. When delivered, the fifth wheel RV was defective in materials and workmanship, and the defects were discovered within the warranty periods, the complaint said. The defects were alleged to substantially impair its use, value and safety. The plaintiff holds Forest River Inc. and Dixie Motors LLC responsible because the defendants allegedly failed to repair the subject vehicle to bring it into conformity with the warranties.
The plaintiff requests a trial by jury and seeks judgment against defendants for all damages, rescission of the sale and the return of the purchase price, economic losses, prejudgment and post-judgment interest, costs of the lawsuit and all other relief deemed appropriate. He is represented by Richard Dalton of Richard C. Dalton LLC in Mandeville.
