Agree what others have said about pulling the trailer forward a few feet. The TT I bought used had one wheel visibly tipped inwards at the top compared to the other 3. New 3500 lb axle from dexter cost about $300 and installed myself. You could see the bend in the old axle between the spring hanger and the spindle.

What do the tires look like? Any uneven wear?


As a first step, I agree with all above, but what do the tires look like. If you have a bent axle or a spindle issue, chances are good that you will notice unusual tire wear.t thing. Checking is easy. Just look.

If you search for RV alignment shops in your area, they can check it for you.

I’d hope you agree with yourself…lol.
Guessing the owner of the RV might not just want a perspective buyer hauling a TT they don’t own down to the RV alignment shop though.

OP here again. Thanks for all your input here. All turned out good with the TT and pulled quite nicely on the trip to its new home! Tires wear looked OK. Now to sell my hybrid TT!!!
