    I was watching the outboard wheel face and top of tire.
    Totally out of plane between axles.

    Not a small bit out- like 2-3” or so.
    What’s that- maybe 20^o difference in camber between the sets....

    I was following a couple of codgers driving a pair of matching little campers with alloy wheels.

    Yep- some of the scenes dockside are grim- I’ve watched plenty of bloody yelling matches and boats being driven up into docks or into the cockpits of other yachts- the helmsman in full panic and wow....

    No- cross square axle which looks sort of light weight- has a uneven beat up looking camber bent into it.
    I am assuming the stubs/cords are short on each side.
    I don’t know if they use the Dexter...

    I told them not to bother- I just balance the tongue weight to 10% and figure if the tow has enough balls to not squat not heeded.
    This was yet another case where I got overruled by the dealer and...

    Yeah Bob now that you mention it yes- scuffing and popping gravel as some newbie tries to back a boat trailer.
    I just never remember seeing the whole rim laying over.
    Maybe the torsion liners in...

    Yeah I actually do- it’s just ~1400 pounds on each tire and believe it or not you can get a good feel for how solid something is attached by a decent kick or grabbing the tire and giving it a decent...

    I am buying the scrub explanation as the trailer pivoted.
    It just was surprising to watch- WAY out of camber..
    I guess they were 15” tires, alloy wheels.
    It seems odd but something was happening....
  17. Ot- Is there a visible camber change on dual torsion axle trailers when you back?

    Some friends just bought a sort of mid level RV a 5500 pounds or so, dual torsion axles and set with a sway bar rig on tow vehicle.

    I was working with them as they tried to learn how to back the...
