Does your trailer lean?

Only when it drinks too much

Anyone have leaning issues?


There was a post in a different listing about someone having a toy box about 2 yrs old and his springs went flat!, you did not say the age or mileage but since you have it in the garage anyway look at the springs before you jack it up and see what they look like.

If on the newer side you might just need to have a spring shop add a leaf or two to level the coach out, since most of the heavy items are on that side.

Good luck and Happy Camping

The post came from the A-Frame subforum. We are discussing a very small trailer here...not one with slides or extreme weight.

No (Trick) at all can be used on (Signal or Dual wheel setup) Just place Ramp in front of tire and Drive up on ramp/ STOP/ place other ramp behind other tire/release brake and let tires equalize between ramps/DONE! Amount you go up the 1st ramp will determine the (Amount of Lift)! They are (Magnum 16000#/4ton set/ramps) Made in the USA! Harbor Freight# 67722 I attached plywood on the bottom to be able to use is them in (Soft soil/Stone/Gravel) situations also! We have (Stacked wood/Lego type plastic blocks/Ect) this works Very Easy for Us,Your situation may very? The ramps are Light weight also! Youroo!!

Back to the original question. The axle manual doesn't mention any adjustment options. But the Al-Ko axle does have a two year warranty. So if your camper is within that time, I'd start a warranty claim by having the camper inspected by an Al-Ko repair facility. Call Al-Ko at 574-294-6651.

Thanks for all the replies. I am just talking about a A-Frame type trailer. It does not have springs, it has the torsion axle. Also the trailer is sitting unhitched in my garage, leaning towards the drivers side. I will take it to work and weigh each side to compare.

Did you ever weigh it?
Do you have water in the holding tank? That might cause a 'lean' effect.

After all the various replies I've far off does it lean... measurement wise?
