Summary: Jayco is recalling certain model year 2013 Eagle Premier Fifth Wheel recreational vehicle trailers, manufactured from June 14, 2012, through August 10, 2012. These vehicles were manufactured with incorrect information on the Recreational Vehicle Cargo Carrying Capacity Label. Thus, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard No. 120, "Tire Selection and Rims for Motor Vehicles Other Than Passenger Cars."
Consequence: An inaccurate label could lead to owners overloading their vehicles and tires. An overloaded vehicle can result in a tire failure which may result in a vehicle crash, personal injury, or property damage.
Remedy: Jayco will notify owners and provide corrected labels free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during November 2012. Owners may contact Jayco at 1-574-825-0608.
