My VTDP was in production during that period. Was it all Ventana's, or just a particular Model number?

As a precaution, pretty easy to check the frt sway bar axle mounting bracket bolts yourself.
Here's additional info.

Newmar Corporation (Newmar) is recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Ventana, and Ventana LE vehicles manufactured March 27, 2015, to February 8, 2016, built on a Freightliner chassis. The front sway bar mounting brackets may not fit properly on the axle causing the mounting bolts to bend or loosen.

If the sway bar bolts loosen, the sway bar may detach from the axle, affecting the handling and increasing the risk of a crash.

Newmar will notify owners, and dealers for Daimler Trucks, manufacturer of the chassis, will modify the sway bar mounting, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin July 2, 2016. Owners should contact Daimler Trucks North America LLC at 1-800-547-0712, or e-mail them at DTNA.Warranty.Campaigns@Daimler.com to locate a service center. Owners may also contact the Newmar service department at 1-800-731-8300. Newmar's number for this recall is 16V 208.
NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to Home | Safercar -- National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).

Thanks Skypilot. I Guess I meant model size (??). I have the 3636 VTDP. Maybe you are saying that all Ventana and Ventana LE's from 34' to 43' are affected.

Your post is very helpful.

The easiest way to tell if you are included in this recall is to call Newmar Customer Service and give them your coach number and ask...

There was a similar recall for Dutch Stars produced around the time frame my coach was produced. Called them, gave them the coach number. They told me my coach was NOT in the recall.

Hopefully, your coach won't be either.
