Kaufman Trailers is recalling nearly 300 model year 2015-2016 Mini 5-Car Hauler trailers, model FE-3/7K-44. During use, the suspension spring eye may break, and allow the axle to slide back and forth.

If the axle is able to slide back and forth, the tires on the sliding axle can contact either the fender or the adjacent tire, adversely affecting handling, and increasing the risk of a crash.

The remedy for this recall is still under development and the manufacturer has not yet provided a notification schedule.

For further information regarding this recall, consumers may contact Kaufman customer service at (336) 790-6800.
