Thor Motor Coach recalls 171 RVs to add seat belts

WASHINGTON — Thor Motor Coach is recalling 171 2017 Chateau, Freedom Elite, and Four Winds Motorhomes because the sofa may not have a seat belt for the middle seating position, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

Without a seat belt, the occupant sitting in the middle position of the sofa will not be properly restrained in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Thor Motor Coach will notify owners, and dealers will install a middle seat belt, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 7. Owners may contact TMC customer service 877.855.2867. TMC’s number for the recall is RC000130.
