Is it just my imagination, or is NHTSA paying more attention to RVs these days?

If they aren't they probably should be with all the shoddy builds we seem to hear about all the time. Of course it could be the shear number of new RVs out there in the last two years, and newbie owners that aren't accustomed to having stuff show up with as much stuff that needs to be fixed. NHTSA is probably hearing from more folks because of it all.

There will be more recalls than posted on the forum for sure. I only get email alerts for Roadtrek and for Winnebago & both alerts were set up several years ago.
