Axle bent?

We have a 2018 21DS with about 800 miles on it, purchased new in October 2017. It handles well and seems to ride smooth, with no noticeable issues. While checking the tires, I noticed that one axle seems to have a small bend in the middle. I'm new to RVing and I'm not sure if this is a problem. We're about to go on a 1500 mile trip next month. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Most all trailer axles have a bend in the middle to adjust the camber.

Thanks for that. I was kind of freaking out when I saw that. The other axle is looks straight.

Just keep an eye on tire wear.
