Cruiser RV is recalling 48 model year 2016-2017 Stryker travel trailers, models ST3316, STG3112 and STG3212, manufactured December 11, 2015, to March 10, 2016.
The trailers are equipped with safety chains on the A-frame that are rated for 11,700 lbs instead of being rated equal to, or greater than, the gross vehicle weight rating (GVWR) of the travel trailer.
In the event the main trailer connection fails, the weight of the trailer can break the safety chains if the chains are not strong enough, allowing the trailer to separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
Cruiser will notify owners, and dealers will replace the existing safety chains with chains that have a 16,200lb rating, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin by the end of April 2016.
Owners may contact Cruiser customer service at 1-260-562-3500.
