Were all packed up and ready to go on Safari....
Water, food, dishes, clothing and miscellaneous supplies (including steel dog kennels and some fire wood) all packed inside.

From the looks of it, I'd say no, your axles look fine when taking the wheel opening for reference.
You should take look underneath, and observe the direction of the torsion arms. If they point down or just before level with a full load, then you're fine. If they point up, then you should replace the axles soon.

By what Andy of Inland has taught us about axles I would say, NO.

Nice!

Looks better than mine do...empty Have you had the running gear balanced and what kind of shape are the shocks in? I know when I pulled my shocks off one of them was not functioning. Just something else to check on.
