Gulf Stream Coach Inc. - Vista Cruiser - Recall
Gulf Stream Coach Inc. has announced NHTSA recall 05V446000, which affects some 2005 and 2006 Vista Cruiser type B motorhomes, built between January 5, 2004, and August 25, 2005. The potential number of units affected is 306.
On certain motorhomes built on the Sprinter chassis, the steel bracket that secures the holding tank is installed in a location where it could press against the brake lines. This creates points of possible wear resulting from vibration during vehicle operation, which, over time, could cause the brake lines to fatigue and leak brake fluid. This could cause a failure of the brakes to operate properly, which could result in a crash.
Gulf Stream dealers will repair these vehicles. The repair will take approximately two hours. However, because of service scheduling times, the service center may need the vehicle for a longer time period.
For more information about this recall, contact Gulf Stream at (574) 773-7761. Owner notification was expected to begin in October 2005.
