“Due to insufficient bracing, the front landing legs may buckle and collapse while the trailer is parked,” NHTSA said. “If the landing legs buckle, the trailer will drop unexpectedly, increasing the risk of property damage, personal injury or death.”

If you purchased a trailer that is affected by this recall, you should contact your Heartland dealer for a free repair.

This recall began in October 2020.

Heartland RV Sued for Failure to Deliver Serviceable Vehicle

In October 2021, an RV buyer filed a lawsuit against Heartland RV and Camping World in the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Texas.

According to the lawsuit, Plaintiff Michael L. Jones purchased a new 2021 Heartland Pioneer BH270 travel trailer from Camping World in June 2021. The RV was made by Heartland RV, a subsidiary of Thor Industries, Inc.

Jones claims that problems with the Pioneer kept it out of service for more than 200 days in its first year of ownership and operation. The complaint accuses Camping World of deceptive practices in the RV sale, stating that the Pioneer was “defective in materials and workmanship when delivered.”

Camping World later returned the RV to Jones, maintaining that repairs were made when they were not made or were made in a deficient manner such that Jones suffered “substantially impaired use, value, and safety,” according to the lawsuit.

Jones further alleges that Heartland RV and Camping World failed to deliver a serviceable vehicle and, once the buyer discovered mechanical discrepancies and defects, failed to repair defects and discrepancies under warranty. The complaint brings claims of both express and implied warranties attached during the sales transaction and thereafter during Jones’ efforts to get the travel trailer repaired.
