WASHINGTON — Airstream is recalling 293 2017 Base Camp recreation trailers, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported today.
When the trailer is heavily loaded, the axle travel may allow the tires on these vehicles to contact the plastic liner of the wheel well or fender, possibly resulting in tire failure. Tire failure can increase the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.
Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will replace the axle to limit the axle travel, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 9, 2017. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 937.596.6111, Ext. 7401 or 7411.
