Forest River is recalling 19,911 of the following model year 2022 fifth wheel and travel trailers with awnings:

  • Silverlake
  • Forest River Cherokee
  • Flagstaff

The electric retractable awning has a welded seam on the fabric that may separate, potentially allowing the awning to drop beyond normal operation.
