well, my trailer was traded in under warranty, my dealer said forest river was being cooperative with the issue.........head mechanic said the same thing as with ur issue.....axle/wheels/frame were not aligned properly

sounds like the very same situation to me Mine was also under warranty, only had it 11 months. Weather or not they fixed it, don't know, but doubt it. I'm sure this issue was passed on to someone, now out of warranty that will have to spend big $$$ out of pocked to fix it.

pretty sad commentary on trailer manufacture. only used the trailer for 6 weeks, 1700 miles........bought it while in florida last january......my dealer up here in mass, where i got my new trailer, is very honest, at least thats my impression.

in any event, headed to florida right after christmas meal with the family here,
