Keystone RV Company is recalling 6,252 model year 2015-2016 Keystone Carbon, Fuzion, Impact, Raptor, and Dutchmen Voltage toy hauler fifth wheels due to an equipment problem.

The affected vehicles are equipped with aluminum black ladders, which have retractable hinges. The hinges have a welded "top hat" that can separate from the hinge. If the hinges separate from the ladder while it is being used, the ladder may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury to the user.

The company will notify owners and dealers will install a brace over the back of the existing hinges free of charge. The recall is expected to start in November 2016.
