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.
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.
