Forest River is recalling six model year 2017 XLR fifth-wheel recreational vehicles.
The vehicles have a federal placard that identifies them as a "Travel Trailer" instead of "Fifth-Wheel." Also, the VIN does not correspond to the type of vehicle.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
With the incorrect information, the operator may attempt to tow the vehicle incorrectly, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River will notify owners, and will provide a new corrected federal placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 21, 2017.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0432. Forest River's number for this recall is 45-0132016-0312.
