November 30, 2015

Airstream, Inc. is issuing a recall for recreational vehicles due to a potential fire risk.

The RV manufacturer is recalling certain model year 2016 Classic, Flying Cloud, International, Sport, Eddie Bauer, and Land Yacht recreational trailers. The affected vehicles are equipped with Auto Changeover Propane Gas Regulators. Propane gas may leak into the plastic gas level indicator window of the regulator causing it to degrade and crack.

If the indicator window cracks, propane gas may leak out, increasing the risk of a fire.

Airstream is recalling about 900 recreational vehicles in connection with this defect.

Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will replace the propane regulator and the required hoses, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Airstream customer service at (937) 596-6111, extension 7401 or 7411.
