    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)

    Not sure where to post for the VIBE
    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."

    Hey Mtnguy.....I happened to see your profile picture of truck and trailer on Skyline Drive overlooking Shenandoah? I have an F150 Suprer Crew cab 4.6L, 3.73..In your opinion, would my rig have trouble making that trip? We would love to take the Grandchildren there in 2013 or 2014. Great pictures!!

    Hi Chap,

    Just to let you know, Mike and I decided to trade in our 263. We got a 2013 Cruise RV Funfinder X 210UDS 21' with a slide. We wanted something smaller if you can believe that! It's a great little camper. We are going to stay on the FR Forum though, it a great site for information.

    Take Care,
