Newmar Corporation Recalls Motorhomes Due to Potential Safety Risk

Newmar Corporation recalled over five model year 2021 Kountry Star and Ventana motorhomes due to potential safety risk.

One of the six brake caliper mounting bolts on the driver side steer axle may have been tightened incorrectly.

The loose bolt could result in the loosening of other caliper bolts. 

Insufficiently tightened bolts may not provide adequate clamping force between the brake caliper and brake anchor plate, resulting in reduced brake effectiveness, and increasing the risk of injury or even death during a crash.

On behalf of Newmar, DTNA will coordinate the recall repair and notify owners, while dealers will inspect and repair, free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin April 13, 2021.

There have been no reported incidents to date.
