SUMMARY:

Fleetwood RV is recalling certain model year 2013 Bounder Classic and Terra motorhomes manufactured between July 9, 2012 and January 16, 2013. The tire load index letter printed on the Federal Certification Tag is incorrect. Due to the inaccurate label, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Part 567, “Certification.”

CONSEQUENCE:

The vehicle may be inadvertently fitted with incorrect replacement tires, which could lead tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY:

Fleetwood will mail the corrected tags to dealers and owners. Owners who are not comfortable installing these labels may get them installed at a dealer, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in June 2013. Owners may contact Fleetwood Owner Relations at 1-800-509-3418. Fleetwood’s recall number is 130417FRV.

NOTES:

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
