Vintage Trailers Ltd. "Vintage Trailers" is recalling certain model year 2007-2013 Crystal, Intimidator, Aero, Outlaw, Bandit, and Cargo trailers manufactured January 2007 through May 2013 and equipped with Fastec-brand door locks. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.
If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the travel trailer at the time will then be locked in and be unable to exit the vehicle without using the emergency exit, increasing the risk of injury.
Vintage Trailers will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall began on December 13, 2013. Owners may contact Vintage at 1-800-233-5455 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.
