An RV manufacturer has announced a recall for trailers due to a labeling error.

Forest River is recalling certain model year 2015-2017 Prime Time Crusader trailers, model CSF370BHQ. The Federal Placard on the affected trailers incorrectly indicates the Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) as 800-900 pounds, when the correct CCC is 2700 to 2800 pounds. As a result, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

The manufacturer is including about 160 vehicles in this recall.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected Federal Placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin June 17, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Forest River customer service at (574) 862-1025.
