Winnebago RV recall: Storage compartments may open unexpectedly


Winnebago Industries, Inc. is recalling 766 model year 2018-2019 Forza motorhomes. The exterior storage compartment door may unexpectedly open while the vehicle is moving.

If the storage compartment door opens while the vehicle is in motion, other drivers may swerve to avoid hitting the compartment door, or objects falling from within, increasing the risk of a crash.

Winnebago will notify owners and dealers will install a new latch and the catch will be inspected and properly aligned and readjusted if necessary. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 1-641-585-6939 or 1-800-537-1885.

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

We have a 2018 Winnebago Forza and 4 of our basement doors have sprung open , on the freeway. Luckily we haven’t had any accidents, but as my husband was pulling over, the door swung out and hit a mile marker sign. We have a beautiful imprint of that sign on our door. Winnebago didn’t even argue, they said get it fixed.
