Forest River recalls RVs for missing emergency exit window

Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain 2018 Cardinal travel trailers, models CAF3045RLLE, CAF304SR, CAF322DS and CAF392RD. The vehicles were manufactured without an emergency exit window in the rear wall of the vehicle.

Without a secondary means of escape from the vehicle, a person may be trapped inside the vehicle during an emergency, which could increase the risk of injury.

Forest River will notify owners, and dealers will install an emergency exit window, free of charge. The remedy window has red handle latches and hinges at the top to allow for egress through the window in compliance with the ANSI 119.2 section of the code “Fire and Life Safety Systems” and sub-section 6.2.2 “Secondary Means of Escape.”

The recall is expected to begin March 28, 2018. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-206-7600. Forest River’s number for this recall is 15-0626.

    i did contact coachman and service person said that it should be the window over dinette. it is not and i told him i would call him back when i got the vehicle back from camping world. also had an email from another contact person from coachman and he is to contact me again. i did mention i wold probably contact the us department that checks vehicle for recalls. all three exits are in the front of vehicle, the driver and passenger door and the side entry to back part of camper.

    I HAVE A COACHMAN LEPRECHAUN 190CB THAT HAS NO EMERGENCY WINDOW EITHER. JUST TRIED TO CONTACT FOR THIS PROBLEM SHOULD HAVE BEEN RECALLS FOR THESE 2017 CLASS C RV’S I PURCHASD FROM CAMPERS WORLD IN nc. THEY SAID THEY WERE RENTALS FROM FLA. AND DON’T HAVE ORIGINAL PAPERS ETC. THEY HAD A WHOLE BUNCH OF THESE VEHICLES FOR SALE IN DIFFERENT CAMPER WORLD LOCATIONS.

    Forest River modified our 2017 Rockwood Signature Ultra Lite 5th wheel for the same problem – no exit window in the bedroom.. As far as I know there was no recall issued, but when we brought it up they came up with the fix which they implemented for free. (We chose to go to the factory to have this done because we have very little confidence in the local dealer.)

    What about the Coachman Clipper model\ I don’t see any safety problems other than the high one step to exit from the camper.
