Forest River Warranty

I am in the process of purchasing a 2021 Catalina which from my understanding was bought last July and returned last August (2020). I was told by the Dealership that Forest River will not transfer the warranty to a 2nd owner for the remainder of the 1st Warranty. I was told by another dealership that this was possible I am confused. I don't want to buy warranties from the dealership that are unnecessary. Please advise?

Whatever a dealer might tell you about the warranty is meaningless. Go to Forest River and consult the written warranty document terms.

When I read the towables warranty, I see a paragraph like as follows, but you can obtain your own copy and interpret it.
“ WARRANTY COVERAGE SUMMARY OF WARRANTY: Forest River Inc., 55470 CR 1, P.O. Box 3030, Elkhart, Indiana 46515-3030 (Warrantor) warrants to the ORIGINAL CONSUMER PURCHASER ONLY, when purchased from an authorized Forest River Inc. dealer, for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase (Warranty Period), that the body structure of this recreational vehicle shall be free of substantial defects in materials and workmanship attributable to Warrantor.”

You can also consult the individual warranties for other components and appliances from their respective manufacturers.
