Massachusetts initiative threatens RV industry

(March 30, 2012) -- The ballot initiative would prohibit any motor vehicle manufacturer (the definition of ‘motor vehicle’ in Massachusetts includes both motorhomes and RV trailers), starting with model year 2015, from selling a new motor vehicle in Massachusetts without allowing the owner, or the owner’s designated in-state independent repair facility, to obtain diagnostic and repair information electronically on an hourly, daily, monthly, or yearly subscription basis.
