2013 Wild Wood Xlite - 195BH Cassis Camber?

Driving down the highway another motorist pulled up and said "something is wrong with your tire." We had always noticed the passenger side tire had a slight angle to it (\) and was more noticeable than on the driver side.
I pulled off the tire and used the spare to get us through our last trip.
Has anyone else had this happen?
We have never exceeded the 800lb contents max. I have an apt on Wed to look at getting new tires, since the trailer still has its original that came with it back in 2013. They are also going to look at the axle for me.
Any info would be appreciated!

- also anyone 195bh owners try a bike rack on their bumper?

Turns out, the axles was installed upside down. A local shop is fixing this today. Have reached out to CampingWorld where we purchased it, they said it was over 12 months so it wasn't their problem. I have a message in Forrest a river as well.Click image for larger version

I have reached out to the dealer and Forrest River. No one will speak with me about it.

Thats a shame because I feel like that is always something the factory or dealership should repair. It came wrong, how would you have any idea that the axle was upside down?

I agree. The plan is to push a refund of the repairs through litigation channels but I have not yet had the time.
