Additional information:

Among the twenty four (24) recalls the NHTSA announced this month comes news of the following:

Logo - Airstream, Inc.Airstream, Inc. (“Airstream”), a Jackson Center, Ohio establishment and subsidiary of Thor Industries of Elkhart, Indiana, has recalled 1,888 model year 2019-2020 Sport, Nest, Flying Cloud, International Serenity, International Signature, Classic, Globetrotter and Tommy Bahama Trailers and 2020 Basecamp, Bambi and Caravel Trailers marketed, sold and delivered in the United States.

NHTSA Safety Notification 19V753000 reports that due to improper welding, the Demco Ball Coupler installed on the recalled Travel Trailers may not provide enough clamping force on the tow ball, potentially causing the coupler to separate from the tow ball.

According to the NHTSA, if the Coupler separates from the tow ball, the towed Trailer can detach from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

Airstream will notify registered owners, and will send a temporary use adaptor that can be slipped over the ball portion of the Ball Coupler to allow owners to tow their trailers. For the final remedy, dealers will add a shim plate to the backside of the ball coupler clamp to put it in position to apply the required clamping force on the tow ball, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin December 20, 2019. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-877-596-6505 or 1-937-596-6111 extension 7401 or 7411 during normal business hours, Monday to Friday, Eastern Standard Time (“EST”)”.
