Jayco Has Recalled Sport Utility Trailers

(SafetyAlerts) -  Jayco Has Recalled Sport Utility Trailers because they may not allow for emergency egress.

Number of Units Affected: 55

Manufactured: 11/2001 - 04/2002

Defect Summary:
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.

Consequence Summary:
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 OR DEATH.

Corrective Summary:
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.

Important Note 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.
