Forest River recalls 33 RVs for incorrect placards

WASHINGOTN — Forest River is recalling certain 2018 Prime Time recreational trailers, models WCF32WB, WCF34WB, and WCF37WB. The Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) on the Federal Placard is listed as 6,160lbs when the axle is only rated for 6,000lbs. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”

Remedy

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will replace the incorrect Federal Placard and Cargo Carrying Capacity label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin October 16, 2017. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1.574.642.0432. Forest River’s number for this recall is 61-0506.
