Pintle Mounting may Fail and Trailer may Detach

A trailer that detaches from the tow vehicle increases the risk of a crash.

 

Summary

Stoughton Trailers, LLC (Stoughton) is recalling certain 2016-2019 DVW trailers. The forward attachment points for the pintle mounting assembly may crack, leading to the detachment of the pintle assembly from the trailer and therefore detaching the trailer in tow.

 

Remedy

Stoughton will notify owners, and dealers will repair the cracks and reinforce the mounting, free of charge. The recall expected to begin in March 2019. Owners may contact Stoughton customer service at 1-608-873-2580.

 

Notes

Owners may also contact the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration Vehicle Safety Hotline at 1-888-327-4236 (TTY 1-800-424-9153), or go to www.safercar.gov.
