Axle Alignment on a 34' Excella 2001

I am in Las Vegas NV with a wheel severally out of alignment from hitting a pot hole to where the tire can't be driven. Two local alignment shops in Las Vegas have told me solid torsion bar axles cannot be aligned, only replaced. I don't think that is correct.
Can anyone help me re: question of alignment & perhaps suggest a shop in CA I could drive to after removing the wheel that is so far out of alignment. I am on my way to Oregon.

I located the Airstream list of alignment shops, that they recommend.

In Oregon, there are 2 of them.

Cairsen Brake and alignment, in Eugene, 541-3445887

Hendersons Line-up, in Grants Pass, 541-4792882 and 800-2458309 extension 1

They can be aligned but they have to be bent to do so. If you hit a pothole you may have bent something else. Since you have a 34, you have a triple axle. If your trailer is not heavily loaded, you can remove the wheel in question and drive slowly to a shop that can help you. Is there an AS dealer in Las Vegas?
