The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) today released a list of auto safety recalls announced in November and December 2000 and urged consumers to have the problems fixed promptly.

Fleetwood Enterprises, Inc.

Models: Fleetwood Prowler Years: 2000-2001 Fleetwood Wilderness Years: 2000-2001 Fleetwood Terry Years: 2000-2001

Number Involved: 1,090

Dates of Manufacture: June 1999 - July 2000

Defect: On certain fifth wheel travel trailers, excessive flexing and/or twisting of the chassis structure that supports and secures the center axle hangers can occur. This can lead to abnormal tire wear and tearing of the chassis main rails occurs. This condition can lead to a loss of vehicle control, increasing the risk of a crash.

Remedy: Dealers will reinforce the chassis by adding steel supports to the main chassis rails above the center axle hanger and will add a cross-member in the same area. The manufacturer has reported that owner notification began Dec. 27, 2000. Owners who do not receive the free remedy within a reasonable time should contact Fleetwood at 1-800-629-8454.
