Cruiser RV is recalling nearly 500 2015-2016 Stryker toy hauler trailers manufactured June 12, 2014, to August 27, 2015, equipped with aluminum black ladders manufactured by Christianson Industries.
The affected ladders have retractable hinges, each with a welded ‘top hat’ that can separate from the hinge.
If the hinges separate from the ladder while in use, the ladder may fall from the vehicle, increasing the risk of injury.
Cruiser will notify owners, and dealers will install a hinge brace over the back of the existing hinges, free of charge. The recall is expected to begin in November 2016.
Owners may contact Cruiser customer service at 1-260-562-3500. Cruiser’s number for this recall is 99-03-11.
