Among the recalls the NHTSA has announced recently, comes news of the following:

Logo - Forest River, Inc.Forest River, Inc. (“Forest River”), an Elkhart, Indiana establishment, has recalled an estimated 484 model year 2013-2019 Starcraft Allstar, 2013 and 2019 Allstar XL, 2017 Candidate II, 2014-2018 Senator II and Senator II HD, and 2015-2019 Starlite Recreational Vehicles marketed, sold and delivered in the United States and equipped with Safe Fleet Prolo Roof Escape hatches. Due to a manufacturing issue in the recalled RVs, the roof hatch external handle may unexpectedly break under reasonable use.

According to the NHTSA, if the roof hatch external handle breaks, in the event of an emergency, the hatch cannot be easily opened from outside the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.

Forest River will notify registered owners, and dealers will replace the hatch, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin September 13, 2019. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-800-748-3440. Forest River’s designation for this recall is 05-1060.
