PhotoForest River is recalling 33 model year 2018 Prime Time recreational trailers, models WCF32WB, WCF34WB, and WCF37WB.

The Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) on the federal placard is listed as 6,160lbs when the axle is only rated for 6,000lbs. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

The incorrect GAWR may cause the vehicle to be overloaded and the axle to fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the incorrect federal placard and cargo carrying capacity label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2017.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0432. Forest River's number for this recall is 61-0506.
