Forest River is recalling 88 model year 2020-2021 Surveyor travel trailers, model SVT296QBLE.

The safety chains are insufficient for the trailer's Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) and may break if the trailer comes unhitched.

If the trailer becomes detached from the tow-vehicle, the safety chains may break, leading to complete detachment and potential property damage, personal injury or a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and a dealer or service center will replace the safety chains free of charge.

The recall is expected to begin July 1, 2020.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at (574) 642-3112. Forest River's number for this recall is 37-1170.
