Jayco has announced a recall for trailers due to a manufacturing error.

The company is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 White Hawk travel trailers, model 25BHS. The affected trailers were incorrectly built on axles rated for 3000 pounds, when they should have been built with axles that have a capacity of 3500 pounds.

If the trailer is loaded to the capacity listed on the label, trailer handling may be affected, increasing the risk of a crash.

Jayco believes that 10 trailers are potentially affected by this error.

All of the affected trailers have been quarantined at Jayco dealers prior to their sale and thus no owner notification letters will be sent. Dealers will install the correct axles, free of charge.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Jayco customer service at (800) 283-8267.
