March 17, 2016

Open Range RV has announced a recall for vehicles due to incorrect labeling.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2012-2014 Mesa Ridge and Roamer trailers and 2013-2014 Light trailers. In the affected fifth wheel and travel trailers, the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) calculation on the label may be incorrect, which may result in the overloading of the vehicles.

An overloaded vehicle increases the risk of tire failure, which makes a vehicle crash more likely.

Almost 2,000 trailers are included in the company's announcement.

Open Range will notify owners and will provide a label with the corrected weight information, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Highland Ridge RV customer service at (260) 768-7771.
