Issue

On certain toy hauler trailers, the Federal Certification label and the Tire and Loading Information label do not contain the correct Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR). The labels incorrectly indicate a GVWR of 7,338 kg (16,177 lb) instead of 6,350 kg (14,000 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.
