Forest River trailers recalled: Aluminum siding may detach

Forest River, Inc. is recalling certain 2022 Della Terra travel trailers and Silver Lake travel trailers. The sidewall extrusion may not have been properly installed, which can cause the aluminum siding to detach.

Siding that detaches increases the risk of a crash or injury. Nearly 3,000 RVs may be affected by this recall.

Dealers will inspect and replace the sidewall metal as necessary, free of charge. Owner notification letters are expected to be mailed October 11, 2023. Owners of the trailers can choose to contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-264-6664. Forest River’s number for this recall is 500-1672.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to for further information.

If they did this recall on their own, swell.
When I lost my tail-brake lights on my rig and no shop within 150 miles would even look at it I was thinking of buying a Forest River product.
The closest Winnie dealer was over 230 miles from me. I had no desire to drive that far without lights.
Sadly I’ve read where that the dealer in Marysville, Wa. is calling it quits.
They were swell to deal with the few times I needed a part or something..R.I.P. You will be missed..
