Forest River Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain 2007-2011 Cherokee recreational trailers. The Federal Placards on these vehicles incorrectly state a Gross Axle Weight Rating "GAWR" of 3,970 lbs., when the actual capacity is 3,500 lbs. The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating "GVWR" is also incorrect. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
The incorrect information may result in a user unintentionally overloading the vehicle, increasing the risk of the crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the Federal Placard with corrected one, free of charge. The recall began on May 31, 2017. Owners may contact Forest River at 1-260-593-4001 extension 17119. Forest River's number for this recall is 17-04042017-0367.
