This didn't come from me, and hard to tell from your pics. If you look under te trailer, at the axles, they should be frowning, bent up in the middle. If they are not, then they were built wrong, with the spring tabs on the wrong side. Have seen this before on a few Wildwoods. Don't read the label, it can say anything, look at he axle. Yours sounds like if you looked at the axle, it would be smiling, which is upside down. Should be covered under warranty, but may be a fight. Hope you have a good dealer.

Take a look at this thread

Having tire issues on a brand new camper....

My Salem was doing the Same (2010 T25S), I brought mine back within 7 months of new. Lippert replaced the axles assemblies under warrently at my dealer. although they balked at the tire wear and said that the tires were NOT covered by their warrenty, I have to give kudos to Forest River for stepping up and replacing all 4 tires with new ones when i complained about the tires not being covered by Lippert.

The dealer has the axles on order from leppert. Hasn't said anything about the tires yet. I'll let you know what they say.

Update my dealer ordered and installed the new Axles from Leppert and replaced the tires! I hope to pick it up either Saturday or Monday! I spoke to the owner of the dealer may have helped slightly. Couldnt ask for a better result!

This happened to me. Brand new trailer wearing the jnside of the tires in less than 500 miles. Trailer was never overloaded. First tires were replaced, tires wore off. Then tires were replaced again, tires wore off. Then tires and axles were replaced, tires wore off. When I got tired of the problem, I took the trailer to a truck/trailer alignment shop, and they fixed the problem quickly. Haven't had a problem in more than 3000 miles of towing. The shop told me that new trailers are usually out of alignment out the factory, so I am convinced I could save some myself some grief by aligning the axles first before trying to replaced the axles the first time around. Trailer dealers can't deal with trailer alignments so all they do is keep replacing tires and axles until hopefully they get a set of axles that fall within spec wasting your time. Save yourself some aggravation and get some peace of mind and take your trailer to a alignment shop after you pick up your trailer to make sure your problem is100% fixed. You don't want to find out you still have a problem on a long trip vacation like I did.

Never would have thought to check alignment on a new TT. Thanks for the heads up as I am picking up my new trailer on Monday and would like to make sure they are aligned.

Any tips are helpful.
