Airstream, Inc. (Airstream) is recalling 3,135 model year 2019 International, Flying Cloud, and Classic travel trailers, equipped with Dometic 3-burner cooking stoves. The stove’s saddle valve securing bolt may be overtightened, possibly damaging the O-ring seal and causing a continuous gas leak.
A gas leak can increase the risk of a fire, which can lead to injury or death.

The recall is expected to begin February 9, 2021. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-877-596-6505 or 1-937-596-6111 extension 7401 or 7411.
