Chassis manufacturer G&S Chassis has voluntarily initiated a recall of some chassis fitted with Control Rider TS Suspension.
The chassis being recalled were built between May 2015 and June 2016.
The move to recall these chassis occurred when G&S Chassis noticed that “a small number of early chassis (less than 0.5 per cent of chassis produced) exhibited a trailing arm weld failure”, according to the Caravan Trade Industry Association of Victoria (CTIAV).
“The association has been advised of no instances of accident or injury relating to this product,” CTIAV CEO Rob Lucas said.
The CTIAV has praised G&S Chassis for conducting the recall.
“We commend G&S Chassis for their obvious concern for their customers by initiating this voluntary recall,” Mr Lucas said. “G&S Chassis is a family-operated business which has been in operation for over 40 years and during that time they have contributed greatly to the recreational vehicle industry and the general community. It is their uncompromising commitment to the quality of their product and customer safety which guided them to commence the voluntary recall in relation to the Control Rider TS Suspension System.
“(We) support G&S Chassis with their swift, proactive approach to addressing their concerns for this product. G&S Chassis are complying with their legal obligations to ensure customer safety and are conducting the voluntary recall in line with the ACCC guidelines.”
G&S Chassis builds more than 4500 chassis a year.
