RV & Vehicle Recall Notices

While recall notifications are typically sent by regular mail if you’re not the original owner, the manufacturer likely doesn’t have a way to contact you in the event of a recall. It’s always a good idea to get in touch with the manufacturer or local dealer to provide them with your address. Same goes if you’re the original owner, but have recently moved.

Below you’ll find our July/August 2021 summary of RV recalls followed by vehicle recalls. We typically publish this list the first week of January, March, May, July, September, and November.

If you have an RV or vehicle that is subject to a recall, you should have it repaired right away to ensure it is safe. Please record the VIN or serial number and call your dealer or manufacturer.
