CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. warrants that each CARRY-ON TRAILER operated by the original purchaser under normal use in the continental United States or Canada will be free from defects in materials and workmanship for one year following the original purchase, subject to the requirements, exclusions and limitations stated below. Enclosed trailers carry a three year warranty on structure. The obligation of this warranty shall be limited to repairing or replacing any part or parts, which in the opinion of the factory are defective in materials or workmanship under normal use and service during the warranty period commencing with the date of the first retail purchase. If the trailer is rented or used for commercial hauling this Limited Warranty is null and void.
In order to validate this Limited Warranty, you must document your purchase. A registration card is attached to the Manufacturer’s Certificate of Origin provided with each trailer. Complete the registration card and mail it to CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC., 101 Joe Harvey St., P.O. Box 542, Lavonia, GA 30553, no later than ten (10) days following the purchase of your CARRY-ON TRAILER. Warranty registration may also be completed electronically by visiting the consumer resource center at www.carry-ontrailer.com. Federal law requires this purchase record. Failure to complete and return this warranty registration within the above period will automatically void the warranty.
Subject to the requirements, exclusions and limitations stated below, the structure of your CARRY-ON TRAILER is warranted to the original retail purchaser against defects in materials and workmanship by CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. from normal use for a period of one (1) year for utility trailers and three (3) years for enclosed trailers from the date of purchase. The structure is that portion of the trailer, which includes the main frame, consisting of the bottom rails, cross members, side posts and exterior walls, roof rails and bows, and the sub-frame, excluding the floorboards and running gear.
Subject to the requirements, exclusions and limitations stated below, all other components (electrical, lights, mechanical jacks, fiberglass, doors, sealants, locks, and couplers) of your CARRY-ON TRAILER are warranted to the original retail purchaser against any defect in the materials and workmanship by CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. arising from normal use for a period of one (1) year from the date of purchase.
Expressly excluded from the Limited Warranty are any claims related to items that are warranted by their manufacturer. These items include, but are not limited to: tires, rims, axles, and axle components including, without implied limitation, tow in/tow out and camber on axle; brake components; springs and suspension components; couplers and jacks; and any other items purchased and installed by CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. Any claims related to these items must be presented to their manufacturer for adjustment. Subject to the other terms of this Limited Warranty, CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. warrants proper installation of the above listed items.
This Limited Warranty covers only defects in original components which arise from normal use and does not apply if the trailer has been subject to negligence, accident, abuse, misuse, improper loading, or has been repaired or altered without the prior written consent of CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. Damages caused by failure to provide proper maintenance and repair, loose or improperly torqued lug nuts, use of incorrect or altered hitch ball or improper latching or loose nuts, bolts, and screws (maintaining necessary tightness is the owners responsibility) are not covered by this Limited Warranty.
In addition to the above exclusions, CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. expressly excludes from this Limited Warranty the following: tow vehicle wiring, replacement and work performed or options installed by others; deterioration of paint and appearance due to use and exposure; loss of time, inconvenience, loss of use of trailer, rental of substitute equipment, loss of revenues, or other commercial loss; and tow vehicle wear. The trailer covered by this Limited Warranty is designed to be towed by a vehicle with up to one (1) ton capacity, and any use of the trailer that exceeds the tow vehicle manufacturer’s specific limitations are not covered by this Limited Warranty.
No reimbursement will be made to any dealer or owner for repairs made without the prior written consent of CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. Any defective part(s) must be sent by prepaid freight to CARRY-ON TRAILER, INC. in order to qualify for replacement or reimbursement under this Limited Warranty.
