Simplest explanation is the two front and rear tires fight each other in turns, and no Ackerman (As a result of track width, the tires on the inside and outside of a vehicle in a turn roll on different turn radii requiring different steer angles)
Who says the spindles are welded on exactly straight? Wouldn't take much to scrub the rubber off. If you look under a lot of these trailers, including my stacker, the axle has an arch in it to keep the camber correct with a load on it.

This is a quote from etrailer.com


A trailer axle should be slightly arched, with the high spot in the center of the trailer and the spindles on either end being slightly lower. When the trailer is loaded the arch will flatten, placing the trailer tire treads in full contact with the road surface. A damaged or overloaded axle may place the inside edge of the tires in greater contact with the road, rather than the whole tread. A worn or damaged suspension component might cause the trailer to track incorrectly, which would also affect the alignment of the wheels and cause uneven wear.

My trailer has 4000 lbs Torx axles and my total weight is around 5000 lbs with the 2000 lbs T Bucket in it.
I thought that 25000 miles on trailer tires was pretty good.... The second set of tires may have been my fault rather than the tires I was running them a little bit underinflated at 55 psi when I should have been at 75 psi so this set may fair better........I hope..

Mike

These stacker trailers painted to match are great.

From the looks of the rear door it must be something very low profile like this

At Hearthside Grove : Luxury Motorcoach Resort in Petoskey, Michigan you can unload the toys at the clubhouse and they will park your trailer for you in the trailer area....no problem!

Really not that hard with electric or hydraulic tongue jack on the trailer to unhook, and a wife with a hand held walkie talkie and a were view camera. A little practice and you will be an old hand at it.

Just do not forget to watch the noise of the MH when backing up.
