The frame has a camber from front to back. Think of a flat bed trailer and how they have an obvious bow from front to back. Same thing applies to the trailer frame. They said my frame was out by an inch.

Thanks for all the replies guys. Sounds like I have a real conundrum here. A couple of folks say good radial tires fixed the problem, but if the axle is out of alignment, I want that fixed but I could without my brand new trailer for a long time. The dealer already expects to have it for four weeks to fix the roof. And that's without sending it anywhere. Wow.

I've owned 3 trailers from Forest River. Axles on the first two were misaligned upon delivery causing repeated wheel bearing failures. Left-side spindles on one of them were 2 5/8" further apart than the right-side. 3 tires on my current trailer were worn out at 6000 miles due to bent spindles. F.R. has provided some help with realignments and axle replacements both in and out of warranty. They have also provided plenty of frustration.
