Factory Seconds Buying Guide

What makes a Dometic product a Factory Second?

A Factory Second generally means that the product is an ex-demonstrator model of Dometic or third-party products that Dometic distributes. Dometic Factory Seconds may have some minor cosmetic imperfections or be a reconditioned product but is in full working condition. A reconditioned product is one that has been owned previously, been returned under warranty, and has been fully serviced by a Dometic technician.

No two Factory Second products look identical in terms of their cosmetic damage. The products are best represented by their images on the Dometic Online Store in terms of branding and colour unless otherwise stated. Some products are available in a variety of colours and will be stated as such on the product’s listing.
