Interior and Frame question

I finally got my 1985 AS 31' Excella. It was shipped from Louisina to Los Angeles and I think I did good. It seems to be in excelent condition except one part that I am curious about. The partion bar seperating the kitchen area from the hallway/closets/bathroom is on angle!!! And it is not paralel to the bar by the bedroom. I would like to know if it was built that way or may be something happened to the frame! Everything else looks normal! Please look at the pics and let me know.
Thx.

That bar on my trailer is screwed into the wall. I was able to access it through a roof locker in the kitchen. Based on your photos, yours might be similar. That's right over the axles and could be a sign of a rough ride. Check for sheared or loose interior skin rivets in the area also.

Airstream walls that are no longer straight, have indeed moved.

The cause is either unbalanced running gear and/or bad rubber rods in the axles.

In either case the basic cause is vibration, which if allowed to continue, can cause frame and shell damages that can quickly get out of hand. Plus damages to appliances, too.
