Car hauler axle camber ?

Looking at a used trailer to tow the TJ on. Trailer was built in 1996 but is in great shape.

When I was crawling around under it the axles didn't appear to have any camber built in. They just looked straight all the way across.

Is that something I should be concerned about? It's a 7k trailer.

Thanks,

Jon

All car trailers have solid axles.

I have built a few trailers over the years and as I recall the axle were bent up in the middle. Suppose it is for when it is loaded down the axle will want to bend down in the middle from the weight. I haven't looked at my car hauler lately but it would not surprise me if it was not bent up anymore (mini excavators are heavy). I doubt it would hurt it if they were straight. I wouldn't sweat it if I were you. Dave
