Grand Design RV is issuing a recall for vehicles with improper labeling.

The recreational vehicle manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Momentum trailers, models 397, 398M, and 388M. The affected trailers may be equipped with a Federal Certification Label that lists an incorrect unloaded vehicle weight (UVW), causing the cargo carrying capacity (CCC) to be overstated. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."

If the operator loads vehicle per the information on the label, the vehicle may exceed the Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR), thereby increasing the risk of a crash.

Grand Design is including about 30 recreational vehicles in this recall.

Grand Design will notify owners, and dealers will install a corrected label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin January 11, 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Grand Design customer service at (574) 825-9679.
