October 14, 2021 NHTSA CAMPAIGN NUMBER: 21V802000

Incorrect GAWR on Certification Label/FMVSS 120

Incorrect GAWR information may cause the vehicle to be overloaded, increasing the risk of a crash.

 

NHTSA Campaign Number: 21V802

Manufacturer Cruiser RV

Components EQUIPMENT

Potential Number of Units Affected 264

 

Summary

Cruiser RV (Cruiser) is recalling 2021-2022 Hitch trailers. The vehicle certification label does not have the correct Gross Axle Weight Rating (GAWR) listed. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard number 120, “Wheels and Rims-Other Than Passenger Cars.”

 

Remedy

Cruiser will mail new labels to owners, and dealers will replace them, free of charge. Owner notification letters were mailed November 18, 2021. Owners may contact Cruiser customer service at 1-574-206-7920.

 

Notes

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.nhtsa.gov.
