Issue

Issue:
On certain trailers, the axles were not installed in the correct location. As a result, the hitch can be overloaded due to improper weight distribution. Also, the wire used to power the winch may be too small. As a result, the wire could overheat and weaken the trailer frame. Both of these problems could cause the trailer to become unstable when traveling at a speeds of over 80 km/h.

Safety Risk:
An unstable trailer could sway uncontrollably and create an increased risk of a crash.

Corrective Actions:
The trailers should not be use until the recall repairs are completed. Marca Trailers will notify owners by mail. The corrective actions for this recall are under development.
