I had a problem like that years ago with a bumper pull trailer. I had a guy come out to do a laser alignment. The one axel was actually positioned about 1/4 of an inch too far back and the other axel had too much toe in. He did all the work in my driveway. Afterwards, I got new tires and I watched them carefully. I never had anymore unusual wear. The only was about $450.00, if I remember right. However, that beats the heck out of buying new tires every couple of thousand miles!

If I'm right that Surveyor has rubber torsion axles. I'd have them checked to make sure the mounting bolts aren't loose or the rubber inserts are in good shape.

It's probably a good time the check and relube the bearings if that hasn't been done lately.
