Among the 14 recalls the NHTSA has announced this March comes news of the following:

Tiffin Motorhomes, Inc. (“Tiffin”) has recalled certain model year 2017 Allegro Open Road Motorhomes. A sticker on the tow hitch may list the incorrect weight capacity for the hitch. The sticker states a capacity of 10,000 pounds, and a maximum tongue weight of 1,000 pounds, when the correct towing capacity is 5,000 pounds, with a maximum tongue weight of 500 pounds.

According to the NHTSA, if the hitch is loaded to the weight on sticker, the hitch may fail and the towed vehicle can separate from the motorhome, increasing the risk of a crash.
