VanLeigh RV recalls 815 units to fix spare tire

WASHINGTON — VanLeigh RV is recalling 815 2015-2018 Vilano fifth wheel recreation trailers because the winch that supports the spare tire may not be properly fastened to the trailer, and the trailer’s spare tire could fall off while unit is in motion, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

If the spare tire falls off while the unit is in motion, it may increase the risk of a crash.

Remedy

VanLeigh will notify owners, and dealers will secure the spare tire winch with the correct fasteners, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact VanLeigh customer service at 662.612.4040. VanLeigh’s number for this recall is VL-101.
