The trailer’s drawbar may break at the front attachment where it bolts to the chassis, leading to failure and detachment of the drawbar. Heavy or frequent commercial use may accelerate this hazard. Detachment of the drawbar poses significant safety hazards to other road users and bystanders.
What to do...
All Trailpro trailers have an identification plate on the side of the trailer’s drawbar (as shown in the photo). Check to confirm if it’s a Trailpro trailer, and if so, stop using it and contact Bunnings to organise a refund. NZTA-appointed inspectors have been instructed to not issue WoFs on affected models.
