Travel Lite recalls some Falcon trailers

13

Travel Lite has recalled some 2018 Falcon RVs, models F-23TH, and F-23RB. A 2″ Class III hitch coupler was mistakenly installed instead of a 2 5/16″ Class III hitch coupler. Travel Lite was not aware, initially, that they were installing the wrong hitch coupler. 

Because the coupler is underrated for the weight of the GVWR for the trailer, the trailer could become unhitched from the tow vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash. 

The remedy for this recall is still under development. The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule. Owners may contact Travel Lite customer service at 1-574-831-3000.

After re-reading the recall notice above, it’s NO WONDER Travel Lite cannot address the issue. Unless someone can show different, there is NO SUCH THING as a Class III coupler with a 2-5/16″ cup. It requires a step up to Class IV to get a 2-5/16″ ball coupler. Atwood, RAM and Fulton DO NOT appear to even make a Class III coupler that Travel Lite is trying to ‘remedy’. It seems the trailer chassis for some Falcons and ALL Idea TT’s will NOT convert to a Class IV coupler. Maybe it’s time for the NHTSA to shut them down !!!

Good Ole Travel Lite has a legitimate recall and it’s under development …WHY !!! For Heavens sake take it on the chin and for once take care of your dealers & customers..I can talk from authority as they did nothing for us and their mistake cost me over $1,000. and MISSED SEVERAL summer traveling weeks so now take your time to figure what to do while the customer are using a faulty DANGEROUS mistake..Take you time “MAYBE IT WILL GO AWAY” or do what you did to us …”DO NOTHING AND SPEND NOTHING”..

We also have an identical issue with our Travel Lite Idea 2.0 i18 TT. We’ve been waiting since October 2017 for a response on how they intend to fix this problem.
