Among the 53 recalls the NHTSA has announced this April comes news of the following:

Forest River Inc. (Forest River) has recalled an estimated 579 model year 2007-2011 Cherokee Recreational Trailers. The Federal Placards on these vehicles incorrectly state a Gross Axle Weight Rating (“GAWR”) of 3,970 pounds, when the actual capacity is 3,500 pounds. The Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) is also incorrect. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification”.

According to the NHTSA, the incorrect information may result in a user unintentionally overloading the vehicle, increasing the risk of the crash.
