Newmar has issued a recall of 77 model year 2017 Dutch Star, Mountain Aire, London Aire, Essex, and King Aire motorhomes due to a structural problem.

The affected vehicles have front fascia wood trim that may separate from the slide-out and possibly contact the driver or a passenger.

If this occurs, the result may be a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Newmar will notify owners, and dealers will secure the trim with screws free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin September 3, 2016.
