Defect SummaryOn certain travel trailers, the self taping screws that are used to secure the liquid propane (lp) bottle support tray to the trailer frame may fail. the support tray is mounted to the a-frame of the trailer and holds the lp bottles securely in place.
Consequence SummaryShould these screws fail, the lp bottles could come loose, disengage from the trailer increasing the risk of a crash. if significant contact were to occur over a period of time, the lp tank or lines could be damaged and potentially leak lp gas, which could result in a fire.
Corrective SummaryDealers will repair the lp bottle tray free of charge. the recall began on march 19, 2007. owners may contact coachmen at 1-800-453-6064.

 Subject:milestar tires on coachmen travel trailer comments: i purchased a new 2007 32' coachmen travel trailer in may 2007 with milestar 15 load range 'd' tires on it. i drove the trailer from michigan to glacier national park in july 2007, after 1700 miles the tires where worn bald. i replaced the tires with goodyear radial tires and drove to yellowstone and home another 3000 miles and the goodyear tires worn fine. the trailer weights 8500lbs. coachmen paid be back the $600 for the tires, but i think they should stop putting these tires on these trailers. the outcome could have been a lot different, if i did not notice them wearing out. i had 65psi in them, the tires are made in china. i hope you can warn people about these tires. i have pictures if you need them. thanks .*jb
