WHHHAAATTTT?!?!?!
Someone in the RV manufacturing community admitting liability for a defective product?
Tell me it isn't so. I'm guessing someone took them to court and won their case. Now they are attempting damage control.

Have you even looked at the number of recall threads in this section of the Forum?
Not sure why you seem surprised cause there are a lot of them.

Forest River recall for 2013-2016 Thunderbolt and other Toy Haulers

Recall is for something to do with the axle configuration. They say an axle may come loose and cause a crash. They want you to take it to a FR dealer for repairs. So I am going to pull my trailer for 4 hours to the closest FR dealer for repairs. Anybody sell short term life insurance?
