National RV recall information

Hello everyone
I am wanting to import a 2006 National T330 to Canada from the US. In order to do this I must supply Customs with all recall information on the year and model. Normally, this is done by contacting the manufacturer or an authorized dealer but as the company is no longer in business, I am at a bit of a loss as to where I could possibly obtain this information. Is anyone aware of a complete list of National RV recalls and where one could get their hands on this? Any help would be appreciated!
Thanks.

That should do it. For some reason the 2004 was either ignored or had fewer recalls.

I called RIV before importing 2005 National Dolphin 18 months ago. National RV of coarse is closed so no info will come from them. Anyway, RIV said the only recall clearance they needed was from the chassis manufacturer , in my case was Workhorse. I was able to enter the VIN # in the Workhorse site and found 2 recalls needed to be done.
I had recalls done in the US while bringing the RV home. This was free and I booked the recall work from home at an authorized Workhorse dealer so they
would have the parts needed. One recall was replacing brake calipers.
After I got home I got the recall clearance info & sent it on to RIV. I suggest you
phone RIV just to know for sure this this still the same procedure.
RIV also confirmed the unit I wanted to import was eligible to register in Canada.

Thank you Gregory3 and Theberries and Dunner!
According to the arfc site there are no recalls for the 2006 National Tropical's.
I was able to check Freightliner for the chassis recalls and the sent me the only one for replacement of a Power steering inline filter. No big deal to do before import.
I am going to check with RIV to confirm I have what is needed with the chassis recall clearance, etc. Fingers crossed - I really like the National brand.
Thanks again for the info and sharing your experience Gregory3.

Can't go wrong with a National. I've only read one complaint, and I think that guy was on something... or should have been.

When we imported ours in 2010, we just requested a letter from our chassis maker, in
our case Workhorse, and they quickly provided the letter. Suggest you address your
chassis, which I assume is a diesel, and a freight liner maybe.

Thanks.

When I imported my 2004 Dolphin in 2010 they only required recall info for the Workhorse Chassis - I specifically asked them about a recall letter for National RV and they were not interested in that.
