2019 GREAT DANE FREEDOM - STRUCTURE
Great Dane Trailers (Great Dane) is recalling certain 2019 Great Dane Freedom Combo Drop Deck Platform trailers. The rear impact guards on these vehicles may be too narrow. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard (FMVSS) number 223, "Rear Impact Guards."
HazardIf the rear impact guards do not meet the width requirements, the guards may not prevent a vehicle from going under the trailer in the event of a rear impact, increasing the risk of injury.
Consumer ActionGreat Dane will notify owners, and dealers will install a set of rear impact guard extensions, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in December 2018. Owners may contact Great Dane customer service at 1-877-369-3493.
