Keystone RV Company (Keystone) is recalling certain model year 2014 Cougar, Springdale, Hideout, Passport, and Bullet fifth wheels and travel trailers manufactured January 13, 2014, through February 12,2014.

With an insufficient amount of lubrication, the wheel bearing and hub may become overheated and the wheel may seize or separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall is expected to begin in April 2014. Owners may contact Keystone at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone’s number associated with this recall is 14-202.
