Recall notice 2014 Vibe models + XLR +XXLT

Labels Wrong... get new ones...

Mods...if this is in the wrong place, kindly move! Just read this and thought it should be noted.

Forest River
, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2014 Vibe VCT6501, VCT6502, VCT6503, VCT6504, VCT6505 and VCT6506 travel trailers manufactured July 30, 2013, through April 4, 2014. The Federal Certification Label has incorrect tire and gross axle weight rating information listed. As such, the vehicles do not conform to Part 567, “Certification.” If the information printed on the label is incorrect, it may lead to the recreational vehicle being overloaded, resulting in tire failure which would increase the risk of a crash. Forest River will notify owners and send them replacement Federal Certification and Tire Information labels with the correct information, free of charge. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 260-593-0023.
