Summary: Super Test Corporation (Super Test) is recalling certain model year 2012 Alumadump aluminum trailers, model AL6096, manufactured from September 2011 through April 2012, sold exclusively through the Home Depot. The weld that connects the tongue to the trailer frame can fail under stress.
Consequence: A trailer that separates from the towing vehicle while in use may be a significant road hazard, increasing the risk of a vehicle crash.
Remedy: Super Test will notify owners and will offer a full refund for each of the affected trailers. The safety recall is expected to begin during October 2012. Owners may contact Super Test at 1-815-623-8400. Owners should not contact the Home Depot.
