What is a acceptable lean on a trailer? As you can see below I have a PP 35ck and it is leaning to the drivers side by 1 1/2". When it is parked on a level site I have to use 2x10's to level it side to side.

Don't see a picture. If you can find a place that is level side to side than you can truely see how unlevel you are. I would not be happy with 1&1/2 ins. You should be in warrenty take it to dealer and let them measure it out.

I would think something is not right if the unit is leaning that much. Possibly a weak or broken spring?

Maybe the shackles on the Equa Flex have flipped the wrong way on that side causing it to lean. I think I have read where something like that can happen.

We had the trailer in for service in the fall and I was told that a little lean is normal. It seems to be getting worse. Here is a link to a picture of the trailer. I cannot get pictures to work on this site.

Our '03 is within 3/8" side to side on truly level site.



I would check the trailer weight side to side on a cetrified scale. Might be way heavy on one side due to slides, etc.?

I have a 29RK that leans to the street side 1 1/2". I assumed this was normal because of the 2 slides and the refrigerator being on the same side??

I am with "cwit" that I am not seeing the lean in the pictures but that does not mean it is not there. I see you have the Sidewinder pin box which is what we have. Does your truck hitch swivel? Mine does and if I have it set to swivel all the time and we hit a road that is uneven our trailer looks like it is leaning to the uneven side. If I lock the hitch where it won't swivel it does not do that. Just throwing some ideas out there to see if something might help.

I just took some detailed measurements on a slab in a warehouse. To the underside of the frame it is 1 1/4 lower on the side with the three slides and fridge. From the roof I dropped a plumb line and it is out 1 1/2 to just above the wheels on the road side.



I have the Hijacker 21k undermount hitch and the head swivels both front to back and side to side and does not lock.



I have check the shackles and they all seem fine.

I think I would go back to dealer and have them check out camper and if they say every thing is fine I would ask for it in writing. I can't say a thing about crossroads or my dealer they have both helped me with any and all my problems. My dealer even went the extra mile and washed my camper.

I thought that I was seeing things when it appears that our CF30SK is tilted to the left or drivers side. I looked at the trailer on a level slab and the main coach appears square, but the bed end appears slightly ascew. It appears like the weight of the bedslide is twisting the bed end over the king pin. Itdoesn't seemedto affected anything butit is somewhat worrying.
