Recalls(6)

Roadtrek is recalling 110 model year 2007-2008 SS Agile Class “B”
motorhomes built on Dodge and Freightliner Sprinter 2500 van chassis.
These motorhomes fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor
Vehicle Safety Standard No. 108, “Lamps, Reflective Devices, and
Associated Equipment.” The rear hitch mounted spare tire carrier
(continental spare tire kit), impedes the full visibility of the left
tail light. The drivers of following vehicles may not have full
visibility of the left tail lights. This lack of visibility could result
in a crash. Dealers will install a supplementary tail light on the
fiberglass cover of the spare tire free of charge. The recall is
expected to begin during January 2009. Owners may contact Roadtrek at
1-888-762-3873. 08V-628

Owners will be provided with new mounting hardware for the towel bar and
installation instructions. If an owner is not comfortable replacing the
hardware themselves, a dealer will install the hardware at no cost to
them. The recall is expected to begin during January 2009. Owners may
