Update: Keystone Hideout Recall
The NHTSA announced on Oct. 16, 2020, that Keystone RV Company is recalling Hideout 290LHS recreational trailers from model year 2020 which were incorrectly built with 3500 pound axles and ST205/75R14D tires and rims rather than 4400 pound axles and ST225/75R15D tires. “The incorrect axle, tires and rims can result in the operator overloading the trailer, increasing the risk of a crash,” NHTSA said. Keystone’s number for this recall is 20-388.
What’s the Problem?
This recall affects Keystone Crossroads Hampton 371FKL recreational trailers from model years 2018-2020, according to the U.S. National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA).
The Federal Identification Tag may incorrectly indicate the tire pressure as 6 PSI when the correct tire pressure is actually 80 PSI, NHTSA said. As such, these RVs fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567,”Certification.” An incorrect label may lead to underinflating the tires, increasing the risk of a crash.
Keystone is notifying owners and dealers will replace the Federal Identification Tag, free of charge. This recall began on June 1, 2020.
Keystone Fuzion Recall
Keystone RV is recalling the following recreational trailers sold with auxiliary fuel supply tank mounting straps that were improperly secured with grade 2 bolts instead of grade 5 bolts:

379, 419, 424, 427, 429 and 430)
- 2021 Impact recreational trailers (models 343, 359, 367 and 415)
“The grade 2 bolts may break under certain conditions, causing the auxiliary fuel supply tank to detach, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash and/or fire,” NHTSA said.
This recall began on October 2, 2020. Keystone’s number for this recall is 20-385.
