Issue

On certain fifth wheel and travel trailers, the Federal Certification label, the Tire and Loading Information label, and the Cargo Carrying Capacity label do not contain the correct Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). The labels incorrectly indicate a GVWR of 6,260 kg (13,800 lb) instead of 5,566 kg (12,270 lb). As such, the vehicle could be unwittingly overloaded, which would result in poor vehicle handling characteristics, increasing the risk of a crash causing property damage and/or personal injury. Correction: Updated labels will be mailed to owners of affected vehicles, along with instructions for proper installation.
