Just got back from our first trip, electrics not working. We're told bring it back we will sort it. Next day poured rain, awning leaks Like a seive now being told that's our problem second hand van. I threatened to go to consumer affairs dealer now saying Will talk when we see you surely they are responsible.

Lawyer's Assistant: Because consumer protection law varies from place to place, can you tell me what state this is in?

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

Good Afternoon

How long ago did you buy it?

Do you have anything in writing to confirm what you were told? Was this advertised that it was in good working order and came with a warranty?
