October RV Manufacturer Recalls

Three recreational vehicle manufacturers—Airstream, Jayco, and Cruiser RV—have recently announced recalls.

Airstream, Inc.

Jackson Center, Ohio-based Airstream, Inc. is recalling 18 model year 2011-2012 International, 16-foot RVs, manufactured from May 10, 2010 through September 7, 2011. These vehicles were manufactured with the incorrect tire information label.

During replacement of the tires, a consumer could install the incorrect tire, potentially leading to property damage.

Airstream will mail to consumers the corrected label or the customers will have the option for dealers to install the label free of charge. Owners may contact Airstream at 1-937-596-6111.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1.800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.

Jayco, Inc.

Middlebury, Indiana-based Jayco, Inc. is recalling 502 model year 2010-2011 Greyhawk Class C Motorhomes manufactured from May 28, 2009 through September 22, 2010 for an improper electrical connection at the buss bar on the affected transfer switches.

This could lead to overheating and melting of the transfer switch, increasing the risk of a fire, injury, or death.

Dealers will replace the transfer switch free of charge. Owners may contact Jayco at 1-800-283-8267.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1.800-424-9153), or go to safercar.gov.

Jayco, Inc.

Middlebury, Indiana-based Jayco, Inc. is recalling 2,444 model year 2007-2008 Jay Feather LGT Travel Trailers manufactured from October 9, 2006 through April 17, 2008. These travel trailers may have insufficient clearance between the tires and the wheel well.

This could allow the tires to contact the wheel well, increasing the risk of a crash, injury, or death.

Jayco will notify owners, and Jayco dealers will add a spacer to increase the distance between the axle and the wheel well.

This service will be performed free of charge. Owners may contact Jayco at 1-800-283-8267.

Howe, Indiana-based Cruiser RV, LLC is recalling 1,362 model year 2011 Shadow Cruiser and Viewfinder RVs, manufactured from April 21, 2011 through September 6, 2011. These vehicles have the incorrect Federal ID Tag, Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) information labels, which fails to comply with the requirements of Part 567, “Certification.”

Failure to follow proper vehicle loading specifications because of a misprinted label could increase the risk of a crash.

Cruiser RV will mail to consumers the corrected label, or the customer will have the option for dealers to install the label free of charge.
