Erwin Hymer Group North America, Inc. is recalling 1,701 model year 2013-2019 Roadtrek E-Trek, RS Adventurous, CS Adventurous, and TS Adventurous motorhomes built on Sprinter chassis and equipped with one or two second row captain’s chairs with integrated seat belts.
The seat pedestal base anchor brackets to the chassis frame may not have enough strength to prevent the seat and seat belt from moving in the event of a crash. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 210, “Seat Belt Assembly Anchorages” and 207, “Seating Systems.”
In the event of a crash, the second-row captain seats may not provide adequate protection for occupants, increasing their risk of injury.
The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Erwin Hymer customer service at 1-844-464-3735. Erwin Hymer’s number for this recall is 2019-01.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).
