Forest River, Inc. "Forest River" is recalling certain model year 2014 XLR XLT29HSF travel trailers manufactured October 10, 2013, through April 16, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Federal Certification label incorrectly states that the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating "GVWR" is 11,135 pounds instead of the correct GVWR of 9,774 pounds as well as incorrectly stating the Gross Axle Weight Rating "GAWR" as 5,080 pounds instead of the correct GAWR of 4,400 pounds. As such, the vehicles do not conform to Part 567, "Certification."
If the trailer is loaded to the specifications listed on the label, tire failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners and will supply a corrected certification label, free of charge. The recall began on May 23, 2014. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-800-353-7383.
