Keystone recalls trailers. Tires could rub floor support

1

Keystone RV Company is recalling certain 2019 Dutchmen Endurance and 2017-2019 Dutchmen Voltage travel trailers. The RV’s tires could make contact with the rear floor support, affecting the trailer’s handling.

Tire contact with the floor support while being towed can affect vehicle handling, increasing the risk of a crash.

Keystone has notified owners, and dealers will cut a notch in the floor support to provide sufficient clearance between the tire and the floor support, free of charge. The recall began on January 15, 2019.

Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone RV’s number for this recall is 19-338. They may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153).

Seems to be clear evidence that the RV company did not do any thorough vehicle evaluation during their design phase and maybe didn’t do much or any final inspection to confirm their products meet some basic clearance measurements. I wonder why they have a floor “support” that can be cut with no long term negative consequences. What testing have they done to confirm the “notch” will not result in any long term structural issues?
