2015 Vibe VBT272BHS Recall

I got this from another member, and thought it would be good to post:

Report Receipt Date: DEC 29, 2014
NHTSA Campaign Number: 14V823000
Component(s): EQUIPMENT
Potential Number of Units Affected: 159

Manufacturer: Forest River, Inc.
Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2015 Vibe VBT272BHS travel trailers manufactured July 15, 2014, to December 19, 2014. These trailers may have incorrect tire size and tire pressure information on the Federal Certification and Tire labels. The information on the label lists the installed tires as ST225/75R15/C inflated to 50 PSI, however the tires that are actually mounted on the trailer are ST225/75R15/D inflated to 65 PSI. As such, these trailers fail to comply with Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 110, "Tire Selection and Rims and Motor Home/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 Kilograms (10,000 Pounds) or Less." If the tires are replaced with the tires indicated on the label, the tires may be insufficient to carry the load and a tire blow out may result, increasing the risk of a crash.

Forest River will send new labels to dealers and owners with the correct tire information, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin on January 5, 2015. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-206-593-4005. Forest River's number for this recall is 59-12232014.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
