genuine and what's not
Warning after shock find at Adelaide show
BOGUS COUPLINGS COULD KILL
Have your say
CARAVAN and camper manufacturers have been warned to beware of
counterfeit couplers which could put people's lives at risk
Cruisemaster says the fake non-compliant copies are of its premium DO35
It says the copies are of the previous V2 version which ceased production
last June with the release of the V3.
The first copies were identified at February's
Caravan & Camping Lifestyle
Show in Adelaide
withdrawn after discussions between Cruisemaster and
camper trailer importer.
It has now been revealed that people are trying to sell the counterfeit
copy to other camper and caravan manufacturers.
The counterfeit coupling had no manufacturer's
details, which makes it non-compliant.
It also had a copy of the logo normally used by Cruisemaster on their DO35
couplings and it is believed it infringes Cruisemaster's intellectual
The coupling had also been assembled incorrectly, with the receiver on
back to front.
Cruisemaster managing director Chris Goddard warned that it could be a
serious safety risk if used on the road.
Cruisemaster advises anybody who has recently bought or ordered a product
with a DO35 coupling to check it is the genuine article, and if it is not
to contact Cruisemaster on 07 3624 3800.
