Forest River is recalling five model year 2017 XLR recreational trailers, models XLF413AMP, XLF422AMP, WZXLF422AMP and XLF380AMP, manufactured September 29, 2016, to November 8, 2016.
The vehicles may be equipped with an incorrect federal placard that does not indicate that the vehicle has a third axle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”
If the federal placard contains incorrect axle information, the operator may overload the trailer, causing a loss of a vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected federal placard, free of charge, though owners may also contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-642-0432. Forest River’s number for this recall is 45-11122016-0272.The recall is expected to begin January 13, 2017.
