Forest River is recalling certain model year 2014 XLR Hyperlite toy haulers. These vehicles have an axle equalizer knurled bolt (axle shackle locating bolt) that may not be properly seated in the chassis axle hanger.

If the equalizer knurled bolt is not installed correctly, the bolt may not properly secure the axle, allowing it to shift. This could lead to a loss of vehicle control—increasing the risk of a crash.

Approximately 487 XLR Hyperlite toy haulers are impacted by this recall.

Forest River will notify owners of the recalled travel trailers beginning on June 28, 2017. Local dealers will then replace any equalizer knurled bolts and nuts that were improperly installed, free of charge.

Owners with additional questions can contact Forest River customer service at (574) 642-0431. Forest River's reference number for this recall is 45-03202017-0355.
