make and model information
What are the defects?
The failure is caused by side loading of the coupling, which is at its greatest during slow speed manoeuvring while towing a triaxle dolly with a wide axle spread (greater than 2.8m). This could cause the towed vehicle to detach from the towing vehicle during slow speed manoeuvring. This may result in an unexpected movement on the road when the vehicles are in motion.
What are the hazards?
An unintended movement of the vehicle when in motion may increase the risk of an accident causing serious injuries or death to vehicle occupants or/and other road users.
