Taylor Lautner sues over $300,000 trailer

Country-coach Taylor Lautner must really love his new trailer. The 18-year-old "Twilight" star has sued an RV dealership for not delivering his customized rig in time for the shoot of his new movie "Abduction."

Here's the complaint, filed today in Los Angeles Superior Court.

Lautner claims his dad, Dan Lautner, negotiated with the Irvine, Calif.-based McMahon's RV dealership to deliver a $300,000 customized 2006 Affinity Country Coach RV by a June deadline so the star wouldn't have to rough it on the set of the thriller "Abduction."  

But the deadline allegedly passed, causing Lautner and his Shark Kid Entertainment to sue for breach of contract and fraud. He's seeking unspecified damages.

Considering that Lautner is scheduled to spend most of the winter in Louisiana filming the fourth and fifth installments of "Twilight," we hope for all Twi-hards that this dispute gets resolved quickly.
