Manufacturer: Heartland Recreational Vehicles, LLC
Heartland Recreational Trailers, LLC (Heartland) is recalling certain model year 2014 Sundance 2880RLT travel trailers manufactured November 20, 2013, through January 31, 2014. In the affected vehicles, the Federal Certification label incorrectly states that the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) is 16,500 pounds instead of the correct GVWR of 13,500 pounds. As such, the vehicle does not conform to Part 567, "Certification."
As a result, the trailer may be loaded beyond the specified weight rating which may cause a tire or suspension failure leading to poor vehicle handling and an increased risk of a crash.
Heartland will notify owners and dealers will replace the incorrect Federal Certification label with a corrected version, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in March 2014. Owners may contact Heartland at 1-888-262-5992. Heartland's number for this campaign is 99-01-16.
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
