My 2001 Tropical has the leans!

I have a 01 Tropical with third axle. It drives fine, but it leans to the right all the time due to the obvious wait distribution (fridge and Washer/Dryer).

What is the best and most economical solution to level the ride?

Welcome wmtorp to irv2.
If you take coach to a good spring shop they will add leaf springs to balance the load all around so coach will ride level.
You could also have air bags installed with auto levelers control.
Both will cost some money when I had mine done was 1200 with front end alignment.
I installed air bags myself and cost ran about the same.
You can also place the Timbren type lifts but may not level coach.

Solid axle or WH P32 coil springs and independent front suspension?
Then decide if the front or rear is causing the problem and get back.
I have my doubts if it's a weight distribution problem.
