German-based chassis manufacturer Al-Ko is recalling a number of their 2361 model caravan chassis', after discovering a fault which can cause wheels to come loose.
They are being withdrawn after Al-Ko's monitoring of its product
showed that there were irregularities in the film thickness of the brake
drums, which can cause wheel bolts to release, and lead to wheels
They will replace the brake drums on the caravans free of charge
at dealers and caravan workshops for any customers that have one of the
Al-Ko provides around a million caravans worldwide each year, and around 7,000 caravans are believed to have been affected.
They were supplied by Slovenian, Swedish and German manufacturers in October of last year.
Al-Ko is acting quickly to ensure no accidents are caused by the fault, and have
advised owners to not tow their caravans except to the garage, and to
take precautions by checking the wheels throughout the journey.
I would hope that anyone who had bought a caravan affected would have been contacted by their suppling dealer but give them a call if you have any doubts .
