SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: 

Background

    Under 49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(B), a motor vehicle, including a 
trailer, that was not originally manufactured to conform to all 
applicable FMVSS, and has no substantially similar U.S.-certified 
counterpart, shall be refused admission into the United States unless 
NHTSA has decided that the motor vehicle has safety features that 
comply with, or are capable of being altered to comply with, all 
applicable FMVSS based on destructive test data or such other evidence 
as NHTSA decides to be adequate.
    Petitions for eligibility decisions may be submitted by either 
manufacturers or importers who have registered with NHTSA pursuant to 
49 CFR part 592. As specified in 49 CFR 593.7, NHTSA publishes notice 
in the Federal Register of each petition that it receives, and affords 
interested persons an opportunity to comment on the petition. At the 
close of the comment period, NHTSA decides, on the basis of the 
petition and any comments that it has received, whether the vehicle is 
eligible for importation. The agency then publishes this decision in 
the Federal Register.
    G&K Automotive Conversion Inc. (G&K), of Santa Ana, California 
(Registered Importer R-90-007) has petitioned NHTSA to decide whether 
nonconforming MY 2014 EMU Camper Trailer 4x4 Extreme Adventure trailers 
are eligible for importation into the United States. G&K believes these 
vehicles are capable of being modified to meet all applicable FMVSS.
    G&K submitted information with its petition intended to demonstrate 
that MY 2014 EMU Camper Trailer 4x4 Extreme Adventure trailers are 
capable of being altered to comply with all applicable standards to 
which they were not originally manufactured to conform.
    Specifically, the petitioner contends that the nonconforming MY 
2014 EMU Camper Trailer 4x4 Extreme Adventure trailers meet or are 
capable of being altered to meet the following standards, in the manner 
indicated:
    Standard No. 108 Lamps, Reflective Devices and Associated 
Equipment: Installation of the following U.S.-certified components as 
necessary to meet the requirements of the standard: front and rear side 
marker lamps, stop lamps, taillamps, turn signal lamps, front clearance 
lamps, and side and rear mounted reflex reflectors.
    Standard No. 119 New pneumatic tires for motor vehicles with a GVWR 
of more than 10,000 pounds: Replacement of any nonconforming tires with 
tires that conform to the standard.
    Standard No. 120 Tire Selection and Rims and motor home/recreation 
vehicle trailer: Installation of the required tire information placard.
    G&K further states that labels will be affixed to conform to 
requirements of 49 CFR part 567 Certification.
    This notice of receipt of G&K petition does not represent any 
agency decision or other exercise of judgment concerning the merits of 
the petition. Notice of final action on the petition will be published 
in the Federal Register pursuant to the authority indicated below.

    Authority:  49 U.S.C. 30141(a)(1)(A), (a)(1)(B), and (b)(1); 49 
CFR 593.7; delegation of authority at 49 CFR 1.95 and 501.8.

Director, Office of Vehicle Safety Compliance.
