The lawyer was stupid to make such a statement. If it's true.

Only if the people hearing it have some actual knowledge of how small these RV's are with the slide in.  Most folks hear, "functions just fine" and they don't understand what a big deal it is.

If it wasn't new, that just shifts the liability.  Someone still (knowingly in that case) sold them a piece of poo coach. 

That said, we bought our TT used and we spent probably 2-3 hours making the tech go through everything.  We made him put the slide in and out, the awning in and out, light the oven, turn on the water, show us where the fuses were...I had a 4 page checklist.  So far, all we've found wrong is we can't get the antenna to turn.  The dealer found the radio didn't work and had a brand new one shipped to us, having shown us how to install it.  We haven't bothered yet.  Our 3-month dealer warranty ends October 27.  When we come back from our next trip on October 7, we'll let them know if there's anything else they need to fix. 

So they bear some of the blame, but it still needs to be made right.

Since Winnebago issued a new vehicle warranty after they purchased it, it would appear that it was 'new' in that it had never been titled before.  Probably a unit that didn't sell for some reason.

We were told half the jury were RVers so I'm pretty sure they gave the others a clue.

In my Honest opinion: It has more to do with the selling dealer and a possibly an unscrupulous salesperson! It seems as the dealership didn't check to make sure all systems were working properly before it was ready to sell! Yes the settlement is quite a bit extreme but it was very disappointing to lose the use of it for so long! I wouldn't be a happy camper either!
