Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc. (Tiffin)
is recalling certain model year 2013 Allegro Bus
recreational vehicles equipped with Villa ISS GSK driver and passenger seats.

Tiffin will notify owners, and dealers will inspect for the correct seat belt installation, or re-assemble the seat belt correctly with proper attachment hardware if necessary, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661.
