Chassis warranty

We have a 2012 Georgetown built on a Ford 550 chassis with the V10 engine. Is this covered under the basic warranty issued by Ford?

I can't say for sure, but I would think Ford would have to warrant the chassis, and Forrest River the camper part.

Your dealer should have gone over that with you?? Ford covers the chassis for 5 years or mileage, similar to a new car warranty, I can't remember the exact number, but you can probably find out on the Ford website. It's too bad Forest River did not cover everything else similar to a new car warranty.

Do you suppose Lippert makes the chassis for Ford too?

Thanks for all the replys. The dealer did leave out quite a bit of info on this sort of thing. I got a number for Ford RV assistance 800-444-3311. They were a very big help!

No Lippert does not make the chassis for Ford. The Motorhome chassis is a stripped chassis from Ford manufactured for this purpose.

Chassis warranty is 5y-60,000mi, also before you jump on a road service plan, ford gives you a free one for 3 yrs. Google ford chassis rv and you will find it. Most dealers either do not know this or fail to pass it on.

While your chassis is warranted by Ford, not many Ford dealers will agree to service it because it is not a standard that their shop understands or can fit in the repair bays. Do call the 800 number referenced in your Ford manual and they will very quickly locate an agreeable dealer. Directions came within an hour for my last request. The dealer may be located several hours drive away, but the frustration of locating the dealer is managed a lot by Ford, motor Home help desk.
