'75 Argosy 22' Axle Photo and Question

My new to me 1975 Argosy 22 is a deinately an ugly ducking. As I am doing my inspection I found the fron taxel to be bowing upwards. Can anyone confirm that the amount of bowing I see is either a problem or not a problem. Please check out the photo link below (I cannot embed a pic these long file name files here).

The axles are supposed to have an upward bow in them, it looks normal in your photo.

If it was flat,, then you would need to worry...

May you have at least one sunny day, and a soft chair to sit in..

A bow might be irrelevent

You were smart to not post Argosy+Axel+BIG.jpg.

The axle vendors would have not been able to conclude that your axles are shot and need replacement.

One of the vendors has a guide on his site. I can't remember which one...
