Summary:
      Gulf Stream Coach, Inc. "Gulf Stream" is recalling certain 2018 Geo and Matrix recreational trailers. The Federal Certification Labels on these vehicles may incorrectly list the Kilogram "Kg" weight rating of the rear axle as 182 Kg "401.31 lbs." below its actual capacity. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
Consequence:
      The axle information for the front axle is correctly listed as 4400 lbs./1996kg, but the rear axle information is incorrectly listed as 4400lbs./1814kg. The discrepancy in information may cause the owner confusion.
Remedy:
      Gulf Stream will notify owners, and will provide corrected labels, free of charge. The recall began on March 5, 2018. Owners may contact Gulf Stream customer service at 1-800-289-8787.
