The word...Lawsuit... should never come up in the conversation. (all communication will shut down if that word is use)

1) talk to Dealer owner on phone. Tell him his Rep said 'tire problem'.... Tell him that everyone else that you talked to said 'alignment' problem. Tell him you will not drive 7 hours and trust a bios 'rep', but will take to a local alignment shop for review. You will contact him after the review for reimbursement on the alignment and adjustment on the tires. If the Dealer wants Lippert involved.. YOU talk to Lippert for yourself and do not go through the Dealer.


No words about Lawsuit.... (keep your cards covered)

Not fair to condemn the entire model line, could be small number of TTs.

Which model Wildwood do you have? I see two that could be cargo challenged. The 27RKSS and the 27RLSS. Loading both those to the max could cause problems. The rest of the lineup has what looks like more CCC than you could actually load in a TT.
If you only have 1200lbs or so of CCC then it is possible that you are overloaded.

Have you looked underneath to see what axle you have? The GVW of that TT is 7648lbs. Assuming a minimum of 10% tongue weight would give you a fully loaded weight around 6883lbs. If they put two 3500lb axles under then you could be close on max load. Just a thought. I would hope they put 4400lb axles under it.

OK I found one like yours and it had a sticker of the axle and CCC sticker. You do have 3500lbs axles. The dry weight of the one on the net was 5700lbs. Not sure what yours weighs but since most people load 1000lbs in I'll go with that. 6700lbs and 10% for TW that leaves 6030lbs on the axles. 7000lbs for the axles leaves you with 242.5 per hub. I think that should be enough. But if they're lippert it's a good chance that they're using softer steel and they have in fact bent.
I would get it weighed camp ready and then see how far under the GVW you are. That will give you something to work with.

Not much more to add Robert.

I wish you luck and keep us posted on your efforts. Sounds like you have a good handle on what should be done.

Just bring it to a quality heavy duty truck/trailer alignment shop. They will fix the problem for under $200.00 and you can move on. Don't go to an RV dealer they are not equipped to do an alignment. All they will do is replace the axle with a new one which may be off as well. The popular Correct Track system won't do you any good either. All they do is adjust the axles tracking they cannot make adjustments for camber or toe. A good alignment shop can adjust all three.
