March 14, 2016

Highland Ridge has announced a recall for RVs due to an issue with labeling.

The recall from the manufacturer applies to certain model year 2015-2016 Highland Toy Hauler, Light, Mesa Ridge, and Roamer travel and fifth wheel trailers. The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) calculation on the label may be incorrect, which can allow the vehicle to be overloaded.

If the vehicle is overloaded due to incorrect Weight Rating information on the label, tire failure may result, increasing the risk of a crash.

The company believes that about 1,900 vehicles have misleading labels.

Highland will notify owners and will provide a corrected label, free of charge. One model (the HT31RGR Toy Hauler) will require two heavier axles installed and five larger tires as well. These repairs will provided free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

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