Forest River is recalling 11 model year 2017 Prime Time Manufacturing Crusader recreational trailers, model CSF338RSK.
The vehicle's federal placard indicates the trailers have axles with a 7,000 lb. Capacity, when their actual capacity is 6,000 lbs.
As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
Incorrect axle information on the placard can result in the trailer being overloaded, causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Forest River will notify owners and dealers will replace the Federal placard with a corrected placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 2, 2017.
Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-862-1025. Forest River's number for the recall is 49-02242017-0331.
