Tiffin recalls 4,990 RVs to fix tow hitch defect

WASHINGTON — Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling 4,990 2011-2016 Allegro Open Road motorhomes because the tow hitch on these vehicles may can detach from the coach under heavy loading or hard braking conditions, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported.

If the hitch detaches, the tow vehicle would not be connected to the motorhome, increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will install frame rail extension liner brackets, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin Motorhomes customer service at 256.356.8661.
