SUMMARY:Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2017 Spartan Toyhaulers, model STF3712X, manufactured March 31, 2016, to June 17, 2016. The Federal Certification Label incorrectly states that the vehicle has a third axle with two extra tires, however, the vehicle is only equipped with two axles and four tires. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."
CONSEQUENCE:If the owner follows the information on the Federal Placard Label, the operator may overload the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
REMEDY:Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install corrected Federal Placards, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin August 18, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-862-3033. Forest River's number for this recall is 61-03032016-0211.
