Forest River recalls 11 RVs to correct axle label

WASHINGTON — Forest River is recalling 11 2017 Prime Time Manufacturing Crusader recreation trailers, model CSF338RSK, the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration reported today.

The federal placard indicates that the trailers have axles that have a capacity of 7,000 lbs when their actual capacity is 6,000 lbs. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”

Incorrect axle information on the placard can result in the trailer being overloaded, causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash, NHTSA warned.

Remedy

Forest River will notify owners and dealers will replace the Federal placard with a corrected placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 2. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 574.862.1025. Forest River’s number for the recall is 49-02242017-0331.

  1. SO imagine you are a lucky owner of one of these units. After the axle label is changed did the tire size, load capacity or GAWR also change? What about carrying capacity
