If I purchase a new Class C RV in Texas and register it in another state, which state would the lemon law fall under?

The law is different in each state and in the end, IF you think you have a lemon, THEN you look at where you sue. In CA the question is "where did the title pass?" If it passed IN CA or that is where you intended for it to pass, with dealer, then the proper venue is almost always here in CA. But the lemon law here requires other things like repairs here...

You must understand that California attorneys can only render an opinion about California law. Each states’ respective laws may apply and Texas may allow you to file there under its lemon law regardless of where you end up moving.
Please do not message or call me unless you are a serious prospective client. The discussions would be outside this forum and would not be visible to the public. If you have additional follow up questions or additional facts to add, re-draft them into a new question and post the new question. My responses on this website DO NOT constitute a consultation, nor do they establish an attorney-client relationship. Only a written retention agreement signed by client and myself will establish an attorney-client relationship.
I think you would pursue it in the state in which you reside.
