Keystone recalls certain Springdale travel trailers



Keystone RV Company (Keystone) is recalling certain 2012-2018 Springdale travel trailers, model 303BH. The Federal Identification Tag on these vehicles overstate the Gross Axle Weight Rating capacity (GAWR) by 800 pounds for each axle. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of 49 CFR Part 567, “Certification.”

The incorrect GAWR makes the Cargo Carrying Capacity (CCC) label incorrect and may result in the vehicle being overloaded, affecting the vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.

Keystone will notify owners, and dealers will provide a new Federal Placard with the correct GAWR and a new CCC label, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin this month. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone’s number for this recall is 17-289.

VIN numbers of the affected vehicles are below.

The NPS should take a hint from Michigan. Instead of raising its park entry pass, Michigan CUT the cost from about $25 to $11 annually with the option of renewing each time you purchase license tabs. The result? They now have more money for maintenance and improvements than they ever had. Why not do this nationally somehow?

Hi, I don’t know if i agree with your apparent enthusiasm regarding any “public-private partnership” about running our national parks. This has been floated before, and the chorus of not in my RV’s backyard has been resounding. I don’t think I would want Old Faithful presented by Burger King, fishing access in the shadow of El Cap presented by Exxon, or ‘this redwood presented by Georgia Pacific’ or ‘Enjoy this view of the Smoky Mountains as you puff on a Camel’ signs in my national parks. This has been an issue, I believe, since the park service was foundedThe key is proper funding, and prioritizing. Surely we’re better than this.
I’ve proposed this before: I have a senior pass getting me half-off camping and free entry at any national forest/park. I would GLADLY pay an annual $5 renewal fee to help fund our parks.

Hello Chuck, Just thought I would let you know so you can let the owners of highland ridge that they are also included in the Jayco LED overheat recall. I have a 2017 Ultra Lite and got the same notice
