Forest River is recalling two model year 2016 Amera-Lite Cargo Van trailers, model ALD612SA.

The thickness of the steel tubes used to manufacture the trailer's drawbars may be insufficient for the vehicle's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating.

The drawbars can fracture and fail during operation, potentially resulting in a loss of control or the trailer detaching from the tow vehicle. Either scenario increases the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the drawbars free of charge.

This recall is expected to begin August 10, 2020.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at (574)848-1335. Forest River's number for this recall is 24-1191.
