Summary:
      Great Dane Trailers "Great Dane" is recalling certain 2019 Great Dane Champion Composite Plate dry freight trailers. These trailers may have an insufficient amount of reflective conspicuity tape along the length of the trailer. As such, these vehicles fail to comply with the requirements of Federal Motor Vehicle Safety Standard "FMVSS" number 108, "Lamps, Reflective Devices, and Associated Equipment."
Consequence:
      Without the required amount of reflective tape, the trailers visibility may be reduced to other drivers, increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Great Dane will notify owners, and dealers will install an additional 12 inches of reflective conspicuity tape on each side of the trailer, free of charge. The recall began November 30, 2018. Owners may contact Great Dane customer service at 1-877-369-3493.
