Summary:
      Stoughton Trailers, LLC "Stoughton" is recalling certain 2017-2018 DAVW and DVW 285S dry van single-axle trailers. The outside welds that attach the front suspension hangers to the subframe may crack, allowing the front hanger to detach.
Consequence:
      If the hangers detach, the axle assemblies will break loose from the trailer causing a loss of vehicle control and increasing the risk of a crash.
Remedy:
      Stoughton will notify owners, and dealers will inspect the front hanger for cracks, repairing them as necessary. Dealers will also install gussets inside the subframe, free of charge. The recall began on July 17, 2017. Owners may contact Stoughton customer service at 1-608-873-2500.
