If the front of the trailer drops while being towed, it may contact the road, causing a loss of control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Columbia Northwest, Inc. (Columbia Northwest) is recalling certain 2016-2017 Somerset Chesapeake and Somerset Newport recreational trailers. A weld on the front A-frame bars may fail, possibly allowing the front of the trailer to drop while being towed.
