Winnebago recalls some trailers built with wrong axle

Winnebago Towable (Winnebago) is recalling certain 2021 Micro Minnie recreational vehicles. The ultra lightweight travel trailers were built with undersized axles that may not support the weight of the RVs and could break.

If the axle should break it could result in serious injury or even death.

Remedy
Winnebago will notify owners, and dealers will replace the 2,500-pound rated axle with the correct 4,000-pound rated axle at no charge to the RV owner. The manufacturer has not yet provided a schedule for recall notification. Owners may contact Winnebago customer service at 1-641-585-6939 or 1-800-537-1885.

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

This kind of ‘mistake’ is just plain scary to me!

There is something more going on here. Winnebago downgraded their specs on these units from 4000 lb axles down to 2500 lb axles during the build in 2020. The dealers were still advertising the units as having 7000 lb GVWR. The actual load decals showed 5000 lb GVWR. I asked their customer service about this and never received a reply. So – what is the real story.

Is there not any kind of quality control at these places. The RV Industry definitely needs a large large reboot.
