Axles bent?

Inner tire wear on all 4 tires after 1100 miles. Went to weigh camper and I'm at 7090 lbs with 920 lbs tongue weight no where near max so I know I'm not overloaded. Tire pressure was at 50-52 lbs. So I am thinking axles may be bent

Are they up-side down, the axle should have a bow in it and the bow should be up, if it is down you get severe tire wear.

I would have the axle alignment checked (most likely a "Toe" problem though).

They were doing it free last year at the Goshen Rally. Not sure about this year.

Update on trailer. Took it in to dealer and after 7 weeks of fighting with service department I finally had axle replaced and 4 new Goodyear tires put on. Not happy at all with service department at Fun Town rv in Cleburne. They tried to get me to take it with bent axles and worn out tires
