Forest River is recalling certain model year 2014 Wildcat recreational vehicles manufactured from October 25, 2013 through January 24, 2014.

In the affected vehicles, the Federal Certification Tag incorrectly states that the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is 15,500 pounds instead of the correct GVWR of 12,330 pounds. As such, the vehicle does not conform to Part 567, 'Certification.'

As a result, the trailer may be loaded beyond the specified weight rating which may cause a tire or suspension failure leading to poor vehicle handling and an increased risk of a crash.

Forest River will notify the owners of all recalled RVs, and dealers will install a new certification label with the correct information free of charge.

For more information on this recall, contact the Forest River Wildcat Customer Service and Warranty Department at 574-206-7600.
