Potential Number of Units Affected: 4,360

All Products Associated with this Recall

2006-2010 Homesteader Enclosed Cargo Trailer and 2006-2010 Homesteader Horse Trailer

Manufacturer: Homesteader, Inc.

SUMMARY:
Homesteader is recalling certain model year 2006-2010 enclosed cargo trailers and horse trailers manufactured January 2006 through April 2010. It may be possible to remove the key from the lock in a way that potentially jams the deadbolt.

CONSEQUENCE:
If the deadbolt jams, the interior side of the door lock may also jam. A person inside the recreational vehicle 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.

REMEDY:
Homesteader will notify owners, and Fastec will coordinate the inspection and replacement of the cylinders, as needed, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by early November 2013. Owners may contact Homesteader at 1-423-626-9040 or Fastec at 1-800-837-2505.

NOTES:
Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153)
