Outdoors RV Manufacturing (ORV) is recalling 140 model year 2015-2017 Glacier Peak fifth-wheel travel trailers. The affected trailers have a pin box that may flex, resulting in metal fatigue, and possibly the separation of the fifth-wheel trailer from the tow vehicle.

If the fifth-wheel separates from the tow vehicle there would be an increased risk of a crash.

The recall began on August 26, 2016. ORV has notified the affected owners and dealers will inspect the pin box, reinforcing it as necessary, free of charge.
