Winnebago Industries is recalling nearly 100 model year 2016 Winnebago Journey and Forza, and 2016 Itasca Solei and Meridian motorhomes.

In the affected vehicles, the front sway bar mounting brackets may not fit properly on the axle causing the mounting bolts to bend or loosen.

If the sway bar bolts loosen, the sway bar may detach from the axle, affecting the handling and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall began on June 7, 2016.

Winnebago owners will be notified by Daimler Trucks North America (DTNA) and they will modify the sway bar mounting, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact DTNA at (800) 547-0712.
