Read that warranty!

In the future, it may pay to read the warranty as well when comparing brands and deciding upon a purchase. Came across this page from the RV dealers association. It seems changes where made to warranties last year that do not benefit the purchaser. Note especially that a warranty might now only cover "Warranty language limiting coverage to “substantial defects” which prevent the RV from performing its intended use for short term recreational camping.". Also, if you purchase "new old stock" (one that's new but was built say in 2020) your warranty is only 90 days.

I understand that these changes might have been made to ease the backlog dealers have in their service departments, but if I were buying new I would not be happy with those warranty terms.
