Summary: Roadtrek is recalling certain model year 2011 and 2012 Roadtrek 21PC Popular and 21VC Versatile model class "B" motorhomes built from October 1, 2010, through November 12, 2011. On some motorhomes, the rivets may fail that secure the awning brackets to the motorhome side wall, allowing the bracket and Thule awning to come off the motor home while operating the awning.
Consequence: If the awning separates from the motor home, the user or people nearby may be injured.
Remedy: Roadtrek will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional stainless steel rivet on each of the awning brackets, free of charge. Roadtrek has not provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Roadtrek Service Department at 1-888-ROADTREK (762-3873) or 1-519-745-1169.
