The Econotrailer two-tonne trailer recall is being overseen by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) and affects trailers sold between the 4th of February 2013 and the 31st of December 2015.

The ACCC recall notice advising that trailers fitted with 50mm x 75mm rectangular drawbar may not comply with the Australian Design Rules (ADR) required specifications due to the strength of the material used.

There is a potential for the affected draw bar on the trailer to detach from the tow vehicle and pose as an accident hazard for road users.

Owners should return the trailers to Econotrailer & Fabrication for a free draw bar upgrade.
