Airsteam Recalls 2000-2003 Land Yacht -- 08/07/2003

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) has announced a safety recall of Airstream Land Yacht motorhomes, years 2000-2003. Certain 350 XL and 355 XL and units designated as 35' XL and 37' XL motorhomes, built on the Ford F-53 chassis, fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 105, "Hydraulic and Electric Brake Systems." The brake-system-warning indicator may not function as required by the standard.

As a consequence in some of the affected vehicles, the brake-system-warning indicator will not illuminate when the ignition is in the start position, or for a low brake-fluid condition.

Dealers will repair the affected vehicles for free. Owners who take their vehicles to an authorized dealer on an agreed-upon service date and do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Airstream. NHTSA Campaign ID No. 03V152000.
Enjoy the unexpected
