What Does This Mean?
We can confidently say we perform inspection and repairs
above and beyond any other dealers do. Believe

advertised as "ready to go" that required thousands of
dollars of repairs. In other words, we far exceed the
requirements for Certified status, but here are the minimum
The first, and one of the most important requirement
to sell a certified pre-owned Camper is that we are not
allowed to advertise the Camper as Certified if it is
being sold on an AS-IS; it must include at least a
limited warranty, also known as a service contract. We
offer a warranty on all our Certified Campers. To

their Camper to us if something goes wrong in the first

The Camper's odometer must be accurate.
the Camper has not been repurchased under any state
lemon law or the federal lemon law.
The Camper must not have previously sustained frame
or unibody damage.
The title for the Camper cannot have been branded as
lemon, flood damaged, junked, salvaged, rebuilt, or
The Camper cannot have previously sustained damage
in a collision, fire, or flood that materially decreases
its performance or safety, even if the damage has been
The term "Certified" cannot be employed by used car
dealers in a manner that is untrue or misleading.
California law also mandates that prior to the
delivery of any Certified used Camper the dealer must
give the buyer a copy of the inspection report showing
which specific components of the vehicle were inspected
in the certification process.
