Keystone RV Keystone RV is recalling 150 model-year 2007 Montana
fifth-wheel trailers. The taillight sockets may not maintain contact with the bulb, so the
taillights may not function reliably. Failure to remedy this situation may result in an
increased risk of a rear-end collision while driving, due to other drivers not being warned
on stopping or turning. Dealers will inspect the taillight sockets and replace them free of
charge. The recall is expected to begin during May 2007. Teton Homes Teton
Homes is recalling some model-year 2007 Laramie Tradition and Denver III Prestige
fifth-wheel trailers equipped with Hickory Springs “Big Easy Triple Steps.” An improper
engagement of the bottom step pivot arm with the formed stop edge of the middle step
support bracket can result in the bottom step rotating to an unsafe downward angle. A
person could be injured should the step give way while being used to enter or exit the
trailer. Dealers will inspect the trailers for the manufacturing date sticker to verify the
date of production of the step and, if necessary, will weld stock to each side of the lower
(triple) step stop edges. The manufacturer has not yet provided an owner notification
schedule.
