Thor motorhomes recalled: Overhead cabinets may detach

1

Thor Motor Coach (TMC) is recalling certain 2018-2019 Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes. The overhead cabinets located above the driver and front passenger seats may detach and fall onto the seat occupants, possibly causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle.

A loss of vehicle control can increase the risk of a crash.

Remedy
TMC will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the overhead cabinets, and reinstall them as necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin February 5, 2021. Owners may contact TMC customer service at 1-877-855-2867. TMC’s number for this recall is RC000208.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

I have noticed that if you put too much weight (how much is too much I dunno) in the o/h cabinets, the staples will want to pull out. Try reinforcing strategic spots with proper wood screws.
