RVer learns part of new Motorhome isn't so new

DANDRIDGE (WATE) -- A Dandridge RV owner was caught by surprise when he learned his new purchase had a truck chassis from the previous year.

Some of the smaller classes of RVs come on a truck chassis such as a Ford, Chevy or Dodge. Those companies don't make the motor homes, though. A separate manufacturer does that.

Retired auto worker John Nolan bought an $80,000 RV at the beginning of January. It was an end of the year deal.

The manufacturer is Pleasure-Way Industries Limited and the RV sits on a Ford F-350 chassis.

Everything in the home was built in 2007, but the truck wasn't. "I thought I was buying a 2007, F-350," John says.
