Un-even tire wear

I have 2001, 27ft Safari and the front tire on one side is wearing unevenly. Can the axels be realigned. I check the tire pressure ofen when travelling so I don't think that has a bearing on my problem. I would appreciate any thoughts that you would have on my problem.
Thanks,
RM

Are they the same size and brand (not all tires are exactly the same size as listed) on all four wheels?

Measure from a common center point at the front to a common point on all axles and make sure the distance is the same. On my little single axle trailer I noticed it dog leging on me and I found that one of the springs was put on backwards. The centering pin was about 1/2 inch off center. Flipped the spring around and it tracked properly.

Check with the Airstream factory. There are service centers that are able to align your axels. I'm sure you will find one in your general area.

Out of alignment and/or lack of proper tire wheel hub and drum balance, can cause the problem.
