Update: Thor Hurricane, Windsport Motorhomes Recalled for Crash Hazard

Thor is recalling the following motorhomes for a potential manufacturing defect that could pose a crash hazard to occupants:

  • 2018-2019 Thor Hurricane
  • 2018-2019 Thor Windsport

The overhead cabinets located above the driver and front passenger seats on affected motorhomes may detach and fall onto the seat occupants, potentially causing the driver to lose control of the vehicle, NHTSA said. A loss of vehicle control can increase the risk of a crash.

This recall began on February 5, 2021.

What’s the Problem?

Thor Motor Coach is recalling certain Hurricane and Windsport motorhomes that were sold with potentially defective circuit boards that could cause a fire from voltages over 17 volts or reverse polarity.

According to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA), this recall affects 2019-2021 Thor Hurricane and Thor Windsport motorhomes, models 27B, 29M, 32T, 33X, 34J, 34R, and 35M.

The electronic control center circuit board on affected motorhomes may be damaged from voltages over 17 volts or a reverse polarity situation, NHTSA said. A damaged circuit board could increase the risk of a fire.

Thor Motor Coach is notifying owners and dealers will add an additional circuit module to the existing component board to provide reverse polarity and over-current protection, free of charge.

This recall began on October 20, 2020.

Thor Motor Coach Lemon Law Lawsuit

In recent years, Thor Motor Coach has attempted to avoid the application of California’s lemon law to their vehicles by having the cases transferred to Indiana, where the company is based. However, consumer lawyers have opposed the motion, and the judge ruled that the cases will be adjudicated in California.

The ruling marks a significant victory for the consumers of California who have been affected by Thor Motor Coach’s alleged violations of the state’s lemon law. Lemon laws provide a remedy for purchasers of cars and other consumer goods in order to compensate for products that repeatedly fail to meet standards of quality and performance. If a vehicle is found to be a “lemon,” the manufacturer is required to provide a refund.

The judge’s ruling is important not only for the consumers of California who have been affected by Thor Motor Coach’s alleged violations of the lemon law but also for consumers across the U.S. who are in similar situations. It sends a message to manufacturers that they cannot evade the consumer protection laws of a state by simply transferring the case to another state.
