    Is this normal for a trailer? Wheels are angled inwards at top

    I just noticed that my wheels are facing inward?

    This is an 07 karavan trailer. Best picture I could get, sorry

    NO! Do not drive with that thing! It would appear the spindle is bent... I would get the tire off to confirm but I'm almost positive that is the problem. A new axle is cheap so I would just replace it...


    **EDIT** just saw your post about both sides doing this... one of two thing than IMO. Bent axle (from to much weight) or axles installed upside down (also a slight chance it was built that way?). Personally I would lean toward bent axle. Do you have a straight edge you can out across the axle tube?

    jack up the trailer & see if the wheel wobbles at all, it may be bearings going bad. Are both wheels the same?

    I guess I assumed that was done already but good point.

    I will jack it up in a few.. Finishing impellar and wear ring now.. Just traded for this trailer.. It was barely used.. Think it had a Yamaha on it new that weighted close to what I have.

    Just jack it up and check bearings before you tow it anywhere...

    Bent axle.... Or installed upside down. Get a 4' straight edge on it.
