Tiffin Motorhomes is recalling 284 model year 2017 Allegro Open Road motorhomes.
A sticker on the tow hitch states a capacity of 10,000 lbs, and a maximum tongue weight of 1,000 lbs, when the correct towing capacity is 5,000 lbs, with a maximum tongue weight of 500 lbs.
If the hitch is loaded to the weight on sticker, it may fail and the towed vehicle can separate from the motorhome, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Tiffin will notify owners and will supply a corrected weight capacity sticker, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.
Owners may contact Tiffin customer service at 1-256-356-8661. Tiffin's number for this recall is TIF-105.
