Forest River, Inc. is recalling 230 model year 2017 Cherokee recreational trailers, models CCKT16BHS, CCKT16FQ and CCKT17CJ.

The affected vehicles may have insufficient clearance between the bottom of the trailer and the top of the tire and, during use, the tire may make contact, possibly damaging the tire.

A damaged tire may unexpectedly deflate, causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin September 26, 2016.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a bolt on lift kit, free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, owners may contact Forest River customer service at (260) 593-4005, recall number 17C-07292016-0234.
