Forest River is recalling 61 model year 2021-2022 Salem and Wildwood fifth wheel trailers.

The federal placard lists a Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) that exceeds the load-carrying capacity of the pin box, which could result in an overloaded pin box.

An overloaded pin box can fail, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will mail owners a new federal placard, free of charge.

Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed on November 3, 2021.

Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at (574) 534-3167. Forest River's number for this recall is 69-1423.
