Additional information:

Among the 70 recalls the NHTSA has announced this July comes news of the following:

Logo - Erwin HymerErwin Hymer Group North America, Inc. (“Erwin Hymer”) has recalled an estimated 1,701 model year 2013-2019 Roadtrek E-Trek, RS Adventurous, CS Adventurous, and TS Adventurous Motorhomes built on Sprinter chassis and equipped with one or two second row captain’s chairs, with integrated seat belts.

The seat pedestal base anchor brackets to the chassis frame in the recalled Motorhomes may not have enough strength to prevent the seat and seat belt from moving in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (“FMVSS”) number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages” and 207, “Seating Systems.”

According to the NHTSA, in the event of a crash, the second-row captain seats in the recalled Motorhomes may not provide adequate protection for occupants, increasing their risk of injury.

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Erwin Hymer customer service at 1-844-464-3735 during normal business hours Eastern Standard Time, Monday to Friday. Erwin Hymer’s designation for this recall is 2019-01.
