2019 FONTAINE INFINITY - STRUCTURE

Fontaine Trailer Company (Fontaine) is recalling certain 2019 Fontaine Infinity trailers. These trailers were built with an under ride guard compliant for a wheels back trailer configuration, however, due to the customers design changes, the wheel set was moved forward and the vehicles no longer meet the definition of a wheels back trailer. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 223, "Rear Impact Guards," and 224, "Rear Impact Protection."

  • Hazard
    The incorrect rear impact guards may not adequately reduce the possibility of a car traveling under the trailer in the event of a crash, increasing the risk of injury to the car driver.
  • Consumer Action
    Fontaine will notify owners, and dealers will remove the C-channel style horizontal member and replace it with a 4-inch tube and reinforcement gusset, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in October 2018. Owners may contact Fontaine customer service at 1-877-345-9526.
