The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) lists one new recall for RVs.
Keystone RV Co. is recalling certain 2018-2019 Keystone Raptor recreational trailers, model 353TS. The tires may rub against the frame outrigger while being towed. The recall is estimated to affect 95 units. The remedy is that Keystone has notified owners, and dealers will cut a notch into the frame outrigger that will provide clearance between the frame and tire, free of charge. The recall began November 20, 2018. Keystone's number for this recall is 18-339.
