Forest River is recalling model year 2017-2018 Salem, Wildwood, XLR, Sanibel, Wildcat, Vengeance, Chaparral Lite and Columbus recreational trailers.
The federal placard may inaccurately list the tire and rim combinations that are installed on the trailers. Additionally, the Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) and the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) information may be incorrect.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims," and 49 CFR part 567, "Certification."
The incorrect information may cause the operator to install an incorrect replacement rim or tire, overinflate the tire or overload the vehicle -- all scenarios that may increase the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River will notify owners and will provide a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 22, 2017.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-800-348-7440. Forest River's number for this recall is 51-04242017-0393.
