As long as your not overloading. I am gonna say its just crappy tires. I had about the same amount of miles on my tires and they were wearing horribly even to the point I thought at first I had axle problems. But after reading numerous posts about cheap tires coming on our rigs I replace this year with maxxis m8008 and went from a 6 ply to and 8 ply. I have around 1500 miles and tires and wearing perfectly.

Usually wear on the inside and outside edges of the tire means that either the tire is under inflated or is over loaded. But it can also just be a low quality tire. What brand of tires are you running?

This spring I replaced the cheap/crappy 205-75-14 Trail Express factory tires on our 2012 Grey Wolf 26BH because they were weather cracking very bad even though they are covered when not being towed. I put on 215-75-14 Hercules Power STR and all has been good so far.

If they were all wore like that then you must have either bent axles or bent spindles.

The only true way to find out what is bent is to take it to an alignment shop, most places that do car/light truck alignments won't have the equipment needed to check a trailer so will have to find a shop that works on semis and other OTR trucks and trailers.

Where all the tires worn on the inside or outside, or was it one side on the inner and other outer? What model is your camper?

Since you said the trailer is only a year old do you still have warranty on it? If not it might be worth a call to your dealer to see if they might help you out at all.
