Class A appears to list on driver side front?

I am considering buying a 2005 Fleetwood Bounder from a large RV dealer in Tampa. It is a 37' diesel (300hp Cummings) with 55,000 miles. Overall, the coach looks very well cared for. However, it appeared to me when standing in front of it that the driver side was listing. I used a tape rule to measure and the driver side was approx 2" lower than the passenger side? Any idea's why? Moved to another site and it was still off over an inch and a half. Coach has air bags (diesel). Could this be serious?

Start the coach up and bring the air pressure up so air ride and level itself then measure it.

Most air bag suspensions have 2 ride height valves on one axle, and only one on the other axle. This could be a ride height adjustment issue.

For example, if the motorhome has two valves on the rear axle, and only one on the front (both front air bags will be tied together for air pressure), and the passenger rear ride height valve is set too high, the result will be the driver's side front will be too low.

It's an easy fix.
