Forest River is recalling 157 model year 2016-2018 Forest River XLR Toyhauler recreational trailers, models XLT25KW, XLT25KW-W, XLT28KW and XLT28KW-W.
The safety chains on these vehicles do not exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) of the trailer.
If the trailer becomes uncoupled, the existing safety chains may fail, allowing the trailer to separate from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the safety chains with chains that exceed the vehicle's GVWR, free of charge.
The recall is expected to begin April 23, 2018.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0432. Forest River's number for this recall is 45-0645.
