Received the recall notice and contacted local dealer (North Carolina) - they don't have a certified aluminum welder but will contract one and then schedule and notify everyone who contacted them. Will update once the repair is done. One nice side note about the repair is that they will relocate the spare tire to the rear bumper. This due to the additional bar they are welding to the frame, right where the spare tire sits on my 21RBS.


My Camplite is a 2013 16BHS... however, this sounds exactly like what is happening to mine.  Anyone with an earlier model have an issue with cracks in the frame?


My less than year old 2018 16TBS is also displaying the cracks in the same areas....
I would imagine they will also be recalled at some point.
