Recalls

There should be a thread that deals only with recalls for Airstream products. Many posts are scattered around the Air Forums dealing with this, but it would be nice if they were all located in one area.

Feel free to post any recalls you find dealing with the Airstream Products.

More specific product recalls may also be posted under their BRAND name or sub-forum (ie plumbing etc.)

There is another thread titled 'LATEST RECALLS' http://www.airforums.com/forums/f161...ml#post1167319
that should be included under a single banner "RECALLS" as many of us own Airstream products that are far from new.

Dave



The following is a list of RV-related recalls for October, 2011, compiled by the National Highway Transportation Safety Association (NHTSA).


• Airstream is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 International, 16-foot ,recreational vehicles manufactured from May 10, 2010, through September 27, 2011. These vehicles were manufactured with the incorrect tire information label. Airstream will mail to consumers the corrected label or the customer will have the option for dealers to install the label free of charge.

• Airstream is recalling certain model year 2011-2012 Avenue coaches manufactured from May 10, 2010, through July 29, 2011. The driver’s and passenger’s seat swivel mechanism locking pin could loosen and become disengaged from the swivel mechanism allowing the seat to swivel back and forth going down the road. Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will repair the coaches free of charge. The safety recall began on August 19, 2011.

AIRSTREAM issued a recall on the CLASSIC model

Report a Concern


Starting date: November 6, 2012 Type of communication: Recall Subcategory: Travel Trailer Notification type: Safety Mfr System: Brakes Units affected: 40 Source of recall: Transport Canada Identification number: 2012376 TC ID number: 2012376 Advisory details

On certain trailers equipped with hydraulic disc brakes, the brake hoses may flex near the fitting on the brake assembly during suspension travel. Over time, the hoses may fatigue and fail, rendering the trailer brakes inoperative.

Check your model on the fridges from 1987 to 2010. Even if they were fixed once already, they may have to go back again.

This site consolidates a lot of the Airstream Recalls quite well.

AIRSTREAM RECALL NOTICES - LATEST RECALLS FOR AIRSTREAM - ARFC

Scroll toward the bottom of the page and pick your model.

Just because your unit is older, you should not assume that the recall has been addressed by some previous owner.
