Forest River is recalling certain model year 2017 Cherokee travel trailers, models CCKT16BHS, CCKT16FQ and CCKT17CJ, manufactured April 15, 2016, to July 28, 2016. The affected vehicles may have insufficient clearance between the bottom of the trailer and the top of the tire and, during use, the tire may make contact, possibly damaging the tire.
A damaged tire may unexpectedly deflate, causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install a bolt on lift kit, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-260-593-4005. Forest River’s number for this recall is 17C-07292016-0234.
