Additional Travel Trailers at Risk of Wheel Detachment Recalled
Grand Design RV and Crossroads RV are both adding a number of recreational vehicles to a growing list of travel trailers and fifth wheels being recalled for defective wheel studs.
Keystone RV previously announced a recall of Keystone Sprinter and Dutchmen Denali trailers for this same reason.
On the affected vehicles, the wheel studs, which are used to attach the vehicle's wheels to the axle hubs, may suddenly break. If this occurs, the wheel could detach from the vehicle while it is moving, increasing the risk of a crash.
The following RVs are affected:
Grand Design – certain model year 2015-2016 Reflection 303RLS, 308BHTS and 313RLTS travel trailers that were manufactured between March 12, 2015 and April 6, 2015.
Crossroads – certain model year 2016 Cruiser, Cruiser Aire, ReZerve, and Sunset Trail recreational trailers manufactured between March 19, 2015 and April 6, 2015.
Both companies will notify owners of the recalled RVs, and local dealers will replace any affected wheel hubs, free of charge.
Owners with additional questions about this recall can contact Grand Design customer service at (574) 825-9679 (reference recall number 910003) or Crossroads customer service at (855) 226-7496 (reference recall number 37.)
