StowAway Warranty and Product Returns
StowAway Carrier Five Year Warranty
We stand behind our StowAway line of Hitch Cargo Carriers. So why wouldn’t we offer one of the best warranties on the market?
Recreational Products, Inc. (PRP) warrants to the original retail
purchaser of the StowAway Cargo Carrier that it is and shall remain free
of defects in materials and workmanship for a period of five years from
the date of retail purchase.
Should the purchaser discover a
defect and notify PRP during the warranty period, PRP will, at its
opinion, repair or replace the unit at no additional charge, or refund
all or part of the customer’s original purchase price. The limited
warranty does not cover damage caused by collision, disaster, abuse,
modification or misuse. Misuse includes, but is not limited to
overloading, improper installation and use with any hitch receiver or an
incorrect size or style.
Limited warranty service may be
obtained by first calling or writing to PRP and describing the problem
or perceived defect. PRP may request documentation to fully understand
the nature of the problem or defect. If a defect or problem is
confirmed, PRP will, at its sole discretion, replace, repair, or
authorize, along with proof of purchase data, using the original
shipping container or equivalent. Unless otherwise authorized, return
transportation charges must be prepaid by the purchaser.
