|Recall Summary:||Forest River, Inc. (Forest River) is recalling certain model year 2006-2012 Amera-Lite cargo trailers manufactured November 2, 2005, to July 21, 2011; 2007-2013 Cargo Mate cargo trailers manufactured December 1, 2006, to February 27, 2013; 2005-2016 Continental Cargo cargo trailers manufactured January 27, 2005, to November 11, 2015; and 2007-2012 US Cargo cargo trailers manufactured January 30, 2007, to July 12, 2011. The tire pressure specification for the 5.30" x 12" Load Range C Tire is listed as 50 PSI instead of the correct tire pressure specification of 80 PSI. As a result, the subject vehicles have incorrectly stated Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) and Gross Vehicle Weight Rating (GVWR) on the Federal Placard. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, "Certification."|
|Hazard:||Using the trailers to the loading specifications on the label while the tires are underinflated may result in sudden tire failure, increasing the risk of a crash.|

Owners may contact Forest River customer service at 1-574-266-7539. Forest River's number for this campaign is 51-02292016-0141.|
