High Altitude Trailer Co. (HATC) is recalling six model year 2019-2020 XT50 trailers retrofitted with a black rear swing arm spare tire carrier.
The weld on the retrofitted rear swing arm bracket may fail causing the rear swing arm, spare tire, and any other attached items to break away from the trailer frame.
If the rear swing arm spare tire carrier bracket weld fails, the spare tire may separate from the vehicle, increasing the risk of a crash.
What to do
HATC has notified owners, and dealers will add reinforcing welds along the top seam of the swing arm bracket and trailer frame free of charge.
For customers not in the immediate region, the manufacturer will coordinate with a local welding repair shop to add the welds and reimburse the shop directly.
The recall began July 28, 2020.
Owners may contact HATC customer service at (720) 391-6685. HATC's number for this recall is 2020G27.
