Airstream Recalls Motorhomes

Airstream is recalling 51 Model-Year 2005-2006 390 skydeck, Model-Year 2006-2007 360xl, 390xl, 396xl, a37 and a39 motor homes built on freightliner chassis. the chassis contain steering filters that can plug due to failure of the screen adhesion to the filter housing causing a rise in return line pressure potentially leading to a hose separation from the filter or steering gear fitting resulting in a sudden loss of steering fluid and power assist.

CONSEQUENCE: sudden loss of steering assist without warning involving a motor home could be a problem for certain drivers increasing the risk of a crash.

REMEDY: freightliner is conducting this recall and will replace the affected filters with a larger filter (please see 07v-570). the recall is expected to begin during may 2008. owners may contact freightliner at 1-800-547-0712 or airstream at 1-937-596-6111.

Customers may also contact the national highway traffic safety administration’s vehicle safety hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (tty 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.safercar.gov.
