NHTSA Recalling Trailers for Suspension Problem

Stoughton Trailers

Stoughton Trailers is recalling more than 1,200 trailers made between Oct. 1 and Dec. 18, 2013, because of a problem with the pivot bolts in the suspension system, according to documents from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.

The recall affects certain 2014 model AHV, AVW, AVXW and ZGPVW trailers with SAF-Holland CBX Trailer Suspension Air Ride Axle Systems.

The recall says that if the pivot bolts fail, then the suspension and attached axle could separate from the trailer and increase the risk of a crash.  Stoughton will notify owners about the recall between now and July 1.

Owners may contact Stoughton customer service at 1-608-873-2555, or SAF-Holland customer service at 1-888-396-6501.  SAF-Holland-approved repair shops will replace the defective pivot bolts free of charge.
