Sure-trac trailer owners

Has anyone in the recent past bought a sure trac trailer and had any problems with crooked axles, tongues, or anything else that would lead to premature tire wear? I'd very much appreciate to hear your story.

Rare occurence during assembly as they use jigs to hold everything. More likely was when the driver stacked them and got overzealous with chains, binders and a long pipe distorting everything. If its new I would take it back. If not a body shop with a frame machine can get it straight for you. Slight adjustments can be made by measuring and sliding the axles on the leaves. Assuming you don't have torsion axles.

I bought mine 7 years ago and just put New tires on for the first time. It has been such a good trailer that 2 years ago I bought a 27' gooseneck from them. As mentioned, it could be that 1 that the jig moved on during construction.
