Summary: Open range is recalling certain model year 2010-2011 Journeyer Recreational Vehicles manufactured from August 27, 2009, through November 17, 2010. A main supporting cross member was cut out to run a liquid propane line. This can cause stress cracks on the I-beams on both sides of the trailers.

Consequence: While being towed, the trailer could begin a dangerous sway, ultimately rolling over, increasing the risk of personal injury or death.

Remedy: Open range will notify owners and inspect the frame for any missing cross supports and perform the necessary repairs free of charge. The safety recall is expected to begin during October 2011. Owners may contact open range at 1-260-768-7771.

Notes: Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s Vehicle Safety Hotline at 888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to http://www.Safercar.Gov.
