Latest RV-Related Recalls from NHTSA


The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration listed a number of recalls outlined here.

Forest River is recalling certain 2017 Prime Time Crusaders for its issue with an incorrect label for an axle.

On an estimated 11 vehicles the federal placard indicates that the trailers have axles that have a capacity of 7,000 pounds when their actual capacity is 6,000 pounds. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”

Forest River will notify owners and dealers will replace the Federal placard with a corrected placard, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 2. Owners may contact Forest River Customer Service at 1-574-862-1025. Forest River's number for the recall is 49-02242017-0331.

Keystone RV Company is recalling their 2017 models of the Cougar and Laredo seeing as some smoke detectors may not have been installed.

The estimated 30 vehicles may have been incorrectly equipped with two carbon monoxide detectors instead of one smoke detector and one carbon monoxide detector.

Keystone will notify owners and dealers will inspect the trailers and install a smoke detector, if necessary, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin March 17. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone's number for the recall is 17-279.

Airstream is recalling its 2017 Basecamp because the tire may rub against the wheel well.

When the estimated 293 trailers are heavily loaded, the axle travel may allow the tires on these vehicles to contact the plastic liner of the wheel well or fender, possibly resulting in tire failure.

Airstream will notify owners, and dealers will replace the axle to limit the axle travel, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin May 9. Owners may contact Airstream customer service at 1-937-596-6111, extension 7401 or 7411.
