Suspension Defect Prompts Recall from Fontaine Trailer Company

October 2, 2015

A trailer manufacturer is issuing a recall for one model due to a suspension issue.

Fontaine Trailer Company is recalling certain model year 2015 Traverse HT trailers that were manufactured from March 4, 2015 to August 6, 2015. The affected trailers have a suspension member that may separate from the trailer as a result of cracks in the trailer.

If the suspension member separates from the trailer, there would be an increased risk of a crash and injury to occupants and others.

Fontaine believes that 23 of its trailers are potentially impacted by this defect.

The manufacturer has notified owners and has installed additional reinforcing pieces, free of charge. The recall began September 2, 2015.

Owners with questions about the recall can contact Fontaine customer service at (205) 485-1375.
