Universal Trailer has announced a recall for vehicles with unstable steps.

The company is recalling certain model year 2007-2010 Haulmark Motorcoach vehicles. The bolt that attaches the fan gear assembly to the steps may fracture allowing the fan gear to disengage from the steps. As a result, the steps may not remain in the expected position and may become unstable.

Unstable entry and exit steps increase the risk of injury.

The company is including about 220 vehicles in its recall.

Universal Trailer will notify owners, and dealers will install a retainer bracket on the double step assemblies and the Coachstep Linkage Assembly will be replaced and a retainer bracket will be installed on the trip step assemblies. The recall is expected to begin May 9, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Universal Trailer customer service at (574) 264-9661.
