Jayco Has Recalled Sport Utility Trailers
Jayco Has Recalled Sport Utility
Trailers because they may not allow for emergency egress.
Number of Units Affected: 55
Manufactured: 11/2001 - 04/2002
VEHICLE DESCRIPTION: SPORT UTILITY TRAILERS EQUIPPED WITH AN OPTIONAL CARGO
BAY WALL. THE CARGO BAY WALL INCLUDES A LOCKABLE DOOR. IF THE DOOR IS LOCKED
AND THERE ARE OCCUPANTS INSIDE THE COMPARTMENT, THERE IS ONLY ONE EXIT, THE
EMERGENCY EGRESS WINDOW.
IN THE EVENT OF AN EMERGENCY, IF THE ONE EGRESS WINDOW WERE INACCESSIBLE,
THE OCCUPANTS WOULD BE TRAPPED INSIDE. THIS COULD RESULT IN PERSONAL INJURY
DEALERS WILL INSTALL AN ADDITIONAL EMERGENCY EGRESS WINDOW IN PLACE OF THE
STANDARD WINDOW. OWNER NOTIFICATION IS EXPECTED TO BEGIN DURING MAY OR JUNE
2002. OWNERS WHO TAKE THEIR VEHICLES TO AN AUTHORIZED DEALER ON AN AGREED
UPON SERVICE DATE AND DO NOT RECEIVE THE FREE REMEDY WITHIN A REASONABLE
TIME SHOULD CONTACT JAYCO AT 1-800-825-7876.
NHTSA CAMPAIGN ID Number: 02V132000.
Regarding Auto Recalls
Frequently SafetyAlerts will list
auto recalls before
your dealer will know about them. If you have a vehicle
affected by one of these posted recalls be sure and
write down the NHTSA
CAMPAIGN ID Number.
If your dealer doesn't know about the recall when you
check, ask them how they are notified of recalls and
when the next update is due.
