Photo source: Forest River
Forest River is recalling 53 model year 2018-2019 Forest River Surveyor recreational trailers, models SVT201RBLE, SVT201RBLE-47 and SVT201RBS-47.

The federal placard indicates that the vehicles have 3,500 lb. capacity axles, whereas they actually have 2,500 lb. capacity axles.

The incorrect label may cause the trailer to be overloaded, possibly resulting in a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.

What to do

Forest River has notified owners and provided replacement placards that contain the accurate axle weight capacity information free of charge.

The recall began on March 18, 2019.

Owners may contact Forest River's customer service at 1-574-642-3119. Forest River's numbers for this recall are 37-0979 and 47-0979
