Keystone RV Company is recalling nearly 20 model year 2017 Dutchmen Voltage toy hauler fifth wheel trailers. The affected vehicles were incorrectly built with a 18,000 lb. rated fifth wheel pin box hitch instead of a 21,000 lb. rated hitch.

If the vehicle is loaded to a weight greater than 18,000 lbs., the pin box can fail, possibly resulting in the trailer separating from the tow vehicle and increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall began on August 5, 2016.

Keystone notified owners, and dealers will remove and replace the pin box inner with one rated for 21,000 lbs., free of charge.

For further information regarding this recall, owners may contact Keystone customer service at (866) 425-4369, recall number 16-259.
