the affected trailers could increase the risk of a crash

Aluma/KLM is recalling more than 1,800 model year 2011-2015 8605T, 8610T, and 8612T trailers due to misaligned axle mounts, possibly resulting in the axle mounts detaching from the trailer, and nearly 530 model year 2011-2015 5410T and 5410WD trailers due to missing welds on the trailer tongues.

If the axle mounts or the trailer tongue separates, there could be a loss of control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

Aluma/KLM will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the axle mount alignment and for missing welds, repairing it as necessary. Additionally, flat straps will be retrofitted to the axle mounts and adding any missing welds and retrofitting two additional gussets, free of charge.
