Uneven tire wear on 2015 Microlite

The tires on the right side of my TT are worn bald on the outside edge just like an auto that needs a front end alignment.



Camping world is telling me that there's no alignment or adjustment to correct this issue. They say that both axles will have to be replaced.



Does anyone have experience in this area and is replacing the axles the only way to correct the problem?


Thanks in advance,

Dennis

Might not be the axles. We had the leaf springs go flat on one side and that caused tire wear. It was hard to see until we had it on a flat piece of concrete.

With these smaller tt, uneven loading of the trailer can put too much weight on the tires and cause uneven wear, although that's not common.

Did Camping World actually see the trailer or are they giving you their best guess as to what's going on?

If it's covered under warranty, I'd let them do it. If not, I'd get a second opinion from a trailer repair place.

I can see you are not under warranty. Yes any good autobody shop with a frame alignment rack can fix it. Axels my not be the problem. Had that issue with my motorcycletrailer. Took the junk tires off and installed new redial tires. Problem solved.
