    Finially my e mails are starting to get attention.

    Please note that this industry is unregulated and just like the “Utilty Trailer Industry”
    with the “Voluntary Regulations”

    They will also have to face NHSTA… If Toyota can fall so can this industry that it totaly unregulated.

    We have defective hitches,,,defective trailers…defective boat trailers and nobody does nothing.
