Jayco, Inc. is issuing a recall for recreational vehicles due to improper equipment.

The manufacturer announced that it is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2016 Eagle Half Ton (HT) fifth wheel trailers. The affected vehicles do not have warning labels on the towing hitch to identify the maximum gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) for towing, maximum tongue weight and towing vehicle braking information.

A vehicle operator could unknowingly overload the trailer, which may result in tire or axle failure and increase the risk of a crash.

Jayco is including about 725 trailers in connection with this defect.

The company will notify owners, and dealers will apply the proper warning label, free of charge. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Jayco customer service at (800) 283-8267.
