BEWARE - 2013 Camplite QBB 16ft Trailer Axle Came Off
« on: September 01, 2020, 01:08:31 PM »
Third time trying to post - anyone thinking of purchasing this or any Camplite needs to have someone check the axle, this could have caused a fatal injury.

Thankfully was coming to a slow stop, not on the highway, or would have totaled my tow vehicle as well.

Beware, CHECK your axle.

Here is some helpful info about the why and how this can happen, is another story of Camplite axle coming off - https://rv.org/blogs/news/watch-those-axles-a-true-story

This forum won't let me upload any photos...

I scaled images down - really important for folks to see what can happen I think.

I loved this trailer, but now afraid of any Camplite model at this time.

One loaded now, yay - here are two more.

Have your trailer inspected, read the link on first post as to why these all aluminum frames may have been welded poorly to the axle - protect yourself.  I or someone else could have been killed.

Stay safe.
