    Single axle? My old Trailerman did that. They said it was the axle and would not effect anything bad, except for tires... That trailer was not kept around long after that though...

    So when you put a load on it, the tires flatten out and wear better.

    Bent axle from overloading it? I see trailers everyday here, single axle trailers with 2 big mowers on them and the wheels are angled like your speaking off.

    When my trailer tires did that, it was a bent axle. When I looked at the axle from the back of the trailer i could see where the center of the axle bent down. I think I overloaded it !
