Forest River is recalling 35 model year 2017 Flagstaff and Rockwood recreational trailers.

The vehicle's federal placard indicates a capacity of 5,000 lbs for each axle, however, each axle actually has a capacity of 4,000 lbs.

As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

The incorrect information can cause the vehicle to be overloaded or result in axle failure, increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the federal placard with a corrected one, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 8, 2017.

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-2640. Forest River's number for this recall is 10C-03082017-0341.
