Forest River is recalling certain model year 2015 Vibe VBT272BHS travel trailers, according to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

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 number 110, “Tire Selection and Rims and Motorhome/Recreation Vehicle Trailer Load Carrying Capacity Information for Motor Vehicles with a GVWR of 4,536 Kilograms (10,000 Pounds) or Less.”

Forest River will send new labels to dealers and owners with the correct tire information. The recall is expected to begin on Jan. 5. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-206-593-4005. Forest River’s number for this recall is 59-12232014.
