AIRSTREAM INTERSTATE 2015-2016
Airstream, Inc. (Airstream) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Airstream Interstate NCV3 B motorhomes manufactured August 1, 2014, to May 18, 2015. In the affected vehicles, if the screen door is in the closed position and the vehicle's curbside sliding door is closed, the motorhome occupants may not be able to move the screen door in order to open the sliding door to exit the vehicle.
If occupants are unable to open the sliding door and exit the vehicle in the event of an emergency, they would be at an increased risk of injury.
Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will attach a stop on the screen door to keep the sliding door from shutting if the screen door is closed, free of charge. The recall began on June 29, 2015. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-937-596-6111 extension 7401 or 7411.
