And this is written where? Unless the chassis is severely overloaded, the alignment should not change, especially the toe in, toe out. The caster/camber might change a little, but not enough to wear tires out in 12,000 miles. JMO.

I don't remember where I saw it or if someone at Forest River said it to me, but I was told that Forest River aligns their coaches after they are built and before they leave the factory.

FR says they do the last alignment before it leaves the factory. I have hit nothing that I can recall, but that doesn't explain why both tires are toed in over 1/2 inch out of standard. I shouldn't have to worry about an alignment with under 12000 miles.
