Triple E Recreational Vehicles (Triple E) is recalling certain model year 2014 Free Spirit FS22, FS22SS, and FS22TE motorhomes manufactured September 2013 through March 2014. In the affected vehicles, the spare tire carrier and spare tire cover obstructs the visibility of the driver's side taillight.
If the driver's side taillight is obstructed, drivers behind the vehicle may not see the motorhome's intention to turn left, increasing the risk of a crash.
Triple E will notify owners, and dealers will replace the old tire carrier with a newly designed one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in April 2014. Owners may contact Triple E at 1-877-992-9906. Triple E's number associated with this recall is CA#7841-1.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov
