EXCLUSIONS FROM THIS WARRANTY: Warrantor expressly disclaims any responsibility for damage to the trim and appearance items located in or on the unit where damage is due to condensation, normal wear and tear, or exposure to the elements. Warrantor makes no warranty with regard to tires, tubes, batteries, routine maintenance, equipment and appliances.

The Warrantor further makes no warranty with regard to any product used as a rental unit or any product not registered and normally used in the United States or Canada.

WARRANTOR EXPRESSLY DISCLAIMS ALL IMPLIED WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY OR FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE AFTER EXPIRATION OF THE WARRANTY PERIOD. No action to enforce express or implied warranties shall be commenced later than ninety (90) days after expiration of the warranty period. There is no warranty of any nature made by the Warrantor beyond that contained in this Warranty. No person has the authority to enlarge, amend or modify this Warranty.
Some states do not allow limitations on how long an implied warranty lasts, so the above limitation may not apply to you.

WARRANTOR’S OBLIGATIONS: Warrantor will remedy substantial defects in materials and workmanship caused by Warrantor. Warrantor shall elect to remedy the defect from among the following: repairs or replacement of defective parts.
PURCHASER’S OBLIGATIONS: Purchaser must complete and return the owner’s registration card within (10) ten days of purchase to validate this Warranty. The return of this card is a condition precedent to warranty coverage; failure to return the completed card to the Warrantor will invalidate this warranty.

All expenses incurred by purchaser in obtaining warranty service shall be borne by Purchaser.
EVENTS DISCHARGING WARRANTOR FROM OBLIGATION UNDER THIS WARRANTY: Misuse or neglect, including failure to provide reasonable and necessary maintenance, unauthorized alteration, accident, improper loading, and leasing of the Cargo Trailer, shall discharge Warrantor from any obligation under this warranty.
PARTS AND DESIGN CHANGES: Warrantor reserves the right to change the parts and design of its Cargo Trailer from time to time without notice and with no obligation to maintain spare parts or make corresponding changes in its product previously manufactured.
OBTAINING WARRANTY SERVICE: It is recommended that all warranty service be done by the authorized dealer from whom you purchased your unit. This is to insure your local dealer’s personal interest in your complete satisfaction. If service becomes necessary as you are traveling or following a move, service under this warranty will be done by any authorized dealer in the United States or Canada. Such service should, whenever possible, be scheduled by an appointment in order to avoid possible delays.
WARRANTY REGISTRATION: A warranty registration card is to be completed by the owner at the time of purchase and returned to Warrantor. The return of this card is a condition precedent to warranty coverage; failure to return the completed card to Warrantor will invalidate this Warranty.
OTHER WARRANTIES: As indicated in the paragraph entitled “Exclusions From This Warranty” above, certain items that are not covered by this Warranty may be warranted separately by their manufacturers or suppliers. In order to validate those warranties, you may also be required to complete and return to the appropriate manufacturer the warranty forms included with the information package. These other warranties may cover such items as chassis, tires, tubes, batteries, optional generators, and appliances, which are not covered by Limited Warranty. For service or parts required for these products, it may be necessary to write or call the product manufacturer to obtain the nearest service center location. In requesting parts for separately warranted products from the manufacturer of the product or its authorized service center, it may be necessary to first obtain a warranty work authorization number before the work is done. It may also be necessary to provide the Product Name, Model and Serial Number along with the description of the problem and part needed, plus shipping instructions. See these warranties with respect to their terms and conditions.
