Forest River, Inc. is recalling certain model year 2017 Coachmen Freedom Express trailers, models FET28SE, FET282BHDS, FET282BHDSLE, FET281RLDS, FET281RLDSLE, FET29SE, FET292BHDS and FET292BHDSLE, manufactured May 16, 2016, to July 19, 2016. The vehicles may have insufficient space between the slideroom driveshaft and the driver’s side tires, causing the tires to rub.
If the driveshaft rubs against the tires, tire failure may result, possibly causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.
A remedy plan has not yet been determined. The recall is expected to begin September 16, 2016. Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-825-8205. Forest River’s number for this recall is 220-07192016-0229.
