Why do I need this bond?
By posting a Florida RV manufacturer bond, principals (RV manufacturers, distributors, importers and van converters) agree to abide by all rules, laws and regulations stated in in Chapter 319 and 320 of the Florida Statutes. If consumers suffer damages due to the poor business practices of the manufacturer, the surety will cover all financial losses up to the full bond amount. The principal must the reimburse the surety for damages paid out.
You could pay as low as $100 for a Florida RV manufacturer surety bond when you work with SuretyBonds.com!
What’s the fine print?
Florida recreational vehicle manufacturer bonds expire on annually on September 30, so your bond premium could be prorated depending on when you buy it.
The surety can cancel the bond prior to the expiration date by giving written notice of cancellation to the state. Cancellation becomes effective 30 days after the receipt of the notice.
