TOWMASTER WARRANTY INFORMATION
This current warranty information takes precedence over our previous warranty statement.
Customer Registration Required
Federal regulations require motor vehicle manufacturers to maintain a record of original owners of their equipment. Our warranty registration fulfills this requirement. Please make every effort to complete this document.
Before warranty can be authorized, we must receive completed warranty registration.
If we have not received the warranty registration, our Limited One-Year Warranty will start from the date of shipment to the original dealer and extend to 12 months beyond that date and the Limited Lifetime Frame Warranty will be limited to 3 years from the date of manufacture.
It is to the consumer’s benefit that the dealer or the customer complete warranty registration on the date of the sale of the trailer as it would extend their warranty period.
TOWMASTER LIMITED WARRANTY
Towmaster, Inc. (herein referred to as Towmaster) offers this extensive warranty to the original owner of our trailers. Warranty starts from the date of sale as long we receive warranty registration within 30-days of purchasing trailer. If we do not receive warranty registration, our Limited One-Year Warranty will start from the ship date of the unit and our Limited Lifetime Frame Warranty will be limited to 3 years from the date of manufacture.
LIMITED LIFETIME FRAME WARRANTY
Towmaster warranties the trailer main frame (frame, crossmembers, gussets, beavertail, and tongue or gooseneck) for the lifetime of the trailer to the original licensed owner to be free from defects in material and workmanship. This LIFETIME WARRANTY does not cover the hitch (ball, pintle, and gooseneck fifth wheel), tires, wheels, axles, suspension, ramps, lights, wiring, paint, wood, d-rings or any other features or options outside the scope of the trailer main frame weldment. Limited Lifetime is determined by the following criteria: The life expectancy of the trailer which is determined to be 10 years on tag trailers 50,000 lb. capacity and lower, or 5 years on king-pin trailers 50,000 lb. capacity and up, to the original owner and is non-transferrable, limited to the first accident or overloading. This warranty covers trailers manufactured after 01/01/2009 and does not cover:
1. Products which have been operated in excess of rated capacities
2. Misuse, abuse or accidents
3. Vehicles which have been altered, modified or repaired in any manner not authorized by our company
Each Dexter Torflex Axle carries a limited 5-YEAR WARRANTY on the suspension to be free from defects in material and workmanship. Warranty is limited to Dexter warranty policy.
TWO-YEAR LIMITED WARRANTY
Depending upon which suspension is used, it may carry a limited 2-YEAR WARRANTY by its manufacturer.
FULL ONE-YEAR WARRANTY
Towmaster warranties each new product manufactured by us to be free from defects in material and workmanship for a period of one year from date of delivery to the original purchaser except as noted below.
This one-year warranty covers the entire trailer against material and workmanship except as noted:
1. New products which have been operated in excess of rated capacities
2. Misuse, abuse or accidents
3. Items that have been pinched (air or hydraulic hose)
4. Vehicles which have been altered, modified or repaired in any manner not authorized by our company
