Stoughton Trailers recall
Stoughton Trailers is recalling more than 4,000 dry van single-axle trailers, according the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration documents. An issue with the suspension is the reason for the recall.
More specifically, 2017-2018 Stoughton DAVW and DVW 285S dry van single-axle trailers are affected. The outside welds that attach the front suspension hangers to the subframe may crack, allowing the front hanger to detach, according to a NHTSA recall document. If the hangers detach, the axle assemblies will break loose from the trailer, causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Owners will be notified by Stoughton, who will inspect the hanger for cracks and repair as necessary. Gussets inside the subframe will be installed as well. Stoughton has not released a notification schedule as of press time.
