March 25, 2016

Winnebago Towable has announced a recall for a vehicle with improper identifying material.

The company is voluntarily recalling certain 2016 Instinct trailers. Due to a manufacturing error, the affected trailers may have an inadvertent I stamped as the fifth character in the 17-digit Vehicle Identification Number (VIN).

No direct safety risk exists but an accurate VIN is required to verify trailer applicability for any future safety recalls.

Winnebago believes that about 50 vehicles are affected by this defect.

Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will install a new VIN plate over the incorrect VIN plate, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Winnebago customer service at (574) 825-5250.
