2. Harvok Warranty


Harvok warrants to the Owner that it will during the Harvok Warranty Period, at its option, repair, replace or adjust free of charge at the premises of Harvok or a Harvok Approved Service Repairer, the Van or Part which it finds to be defective in factory materials or workmanship under Normal Use and Condition within Australia provided that an Exception does not apply.


No individual (including any agent, employee or representative of Harvok) is authorised to make any representation or warranty concerning the Harvok Warranty except to refer to this document.


Any warranty or representation other than set out in this document, whether written or verbal, is hereby expressly excluded and negatived.


The Harvok Warranty is a contract entered into between Harvok and the Owner. The rights and title to or benefits under the Harvok Warranty are not capable of assignment to any subsequent owner of the Van or Part or any other person. To the maximum extent permissible by law, the Harvok Warranty extinguishes on the sale, transfer or disposal of the Owner’s right, title and interest in the Van or Part.

3. Exceptions


Each of the following will constitute an exception in which case the Harvok Warranty will cease to apply:

  • tears, punctures, shrinkage, softening or fading of fabric items such as canvas, canopies, cushions, mattress and upholstery;
  • any defect is attributable, whether wholly or partly, to any modification made to the Van, or use of a Part subject of a modification, unless such modification has been made by or with the prior express, written consent and direction of Harvok;
  • Harvok believes on reasonable grounds the Van has been:
    • written off;
    • used for full time or permanent residential purposes which has accelerated fair wear and tear; or
    • used for any purpose other than recreational personal use including commercial or hire purposes;
  • the Van or a Part has become defective as a result of:
    • fair wear and tear;
    • the Owner’s failure to properly maintain or use the Van in accordance with the recommendations and instructions specified by Harvok in the Harvok Owner’s Manual or in other communication by Harvok to the Owner;
    • the Owner’s failure to have the Van properly and regularly serviced in accordance with the recommendations specified for the Van by Harvok;
    • misuse or neglect of the Van or a Part;
    • normal deterioration or reduction in aesthetic or physical appearance caused by UV exposure;
    • the Van, or the motor vehicle towing the Van, being involved in a motor vehicle crash;
    • accident, theft or fire;
    • water ingress from submersion or water crossing;
    • the Van being used at excessive speeds; or
    • stone or rock strike, hail, windstorm, lightning or other weather event.


Where a defect is exacerbated, or the cost of repairing such a defect is increased, by a failure of the Owner to deliver the Van to the premises of Harvok or a Harvok Approved Service Repairer for the carrying out of the required repair of a defect as soon as possible after the Owner became aware, or ought to have become aware, of the defect, the Harvok Warranty shall only cover the part of the defect that arose to the time the Owner knew, or ought to have known, of the defect.

4. Supplied Parts


Any Parts which are not manufactured or imported by Harvok (“Supplied Parts”) are not covered by the Harvok Warranty to the maximum extent permitted by law in the following respects, which cases Supplied Parts are separately warranted by the manufacturer or importer:

  • that spare parts and facilities for the repair of any Supplied Parts will be reasonably available; and
  • that the manufacturer or importer of Supplied Parts will comply with any express warranty given by that party.
