Forest River is recalling 8 model year 2017 Cedar Creek recreational trailers manufactured September 8, 2016, to September 19, 2016. This recall is due to the axles on the recalled vehicles being incorrectly identified as having a 7,000 pound capacity when they were only rated and designed to carry up to 6,000 pounds.
As a result of this, an owner of the vehicle with the incorrect axles could unknowingly overload the vehicle, possibly resulting in a loss of control or reduced braking distance, potentially increasing the risk of a crash. All affected vehicles have been captured at the dealer level and are being repaired prior to sale. Therefore, an owner notification letter will not be issued for this campaign. Dealers will replace the axles that are rated for a 7,000lb capacity.
Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-593-4000 extension 20209. Forest River’s number for this recall is 20-10112016-0255.
