GALVESTON — Two League City customers are suing a dealership, alleging the Fifth Wheel camper they purchased has been defective and not behaved as expected.
Betty Kirkpatrick and Paul Runnels filed a complaint June 20 in Galveston County District Court against Forest River Inc., alleging violation of the Texas Deceptive Trade Practices-Consumer Protection Act.
The plaintiff allege they purchased a 2018 Palomino Columbus camper from Forest River on July 2, 2018 for $92,000. Since the purchase, the suit says, Kirkpatrick and Runnels have suffered a number of problems with the vehicle, including slide outs, water leaks and water damage, plus problems with leveling system, control panel, flooring, and multiple trim damages. The plaintiffs say they have suffered repair costs and loss of use of the vehicle.
Kirkpatrick and Runnels seek attorney fees, actual, statutory and exemplary damages, costs of court, interest and all other just relief. They are represented by attorneys Craig M. Patrick and James M. Kennedy of Patrick Law Firm PC in Dallas.
