Keystone RV Company "Keystone" is recalling certain model year 2014-2015 Keystone Avalanche recreational vehicles, model 355RK, manufactured from May 6, 2013, through April 24, 2014; model year 2015-2016 Keystone Alpine, models 3100RL, 3101RL, 3555RL, 3556RL, 3590RS, 3591RS, 3600RS, 3601RS, and 3730RS, manufactured from October 8, 2014, through July 28, 2015; and model year 2016 Keystone Laredo, models 325RL, 350FB, and 355RL, manufactured from July 13, 2015, through July 21, 2015. The affected vehicles may be equipped with a rear window that has a sticker labeling it as an emergency exit sticker. However, this window may be partially blocked by the rear ladder and was not intended to be a secondary emergency exit.
In the event of an emergency, occupants could try to escape through the rear window, but would not be able to. This delay in their escape may increase the risk of injury.
Keystone has notified owners, and dealers will remove the emergency exit sticker, free of charge. The recall began on August 17, 2015. Owners may contact Keystone customer service at 1-866-425-4369. Keystone's number for this recall is 15-233.
