Charmac Trailers has announced a recall for models with unstable suspensions.

The manufacturer is voluntarily recalling certain model year 2015-2016 Horse and Cargo trailers equipped with certain 3500 pound capacity torsion model axles. The weld that secures the torsion arm assembly may fail allowing the tire, wheel, hub, and torsion arm to separate from the trailer.

A separation of the torsion arm can result in a loss of trailer stability and control, increasing the risk of a crash.

The recall from Charmac applies to four trailers.

Charmac will notify owners, and dealers will replace the suspect axles, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in January 2016.

Owners with questions about this recall can contact Charmac customer service at (208) 733-5241.
