Doors rub when in tow...normal?

I have a Nomad joey 196 and i noticed when i have the trailer hooked up to my van, the rear door to the bathroom is very tight and wont open or close. It is like the whole rear of the trailer is flexing. Once i level the trailer witht the jacks, everything get aligned properly and works as it should.
Is this normal? is something not adjusted rights?
thanks for the help!!

Sounds like a cheap, weak frame to me.
Is the trailer level hooked to the van?

No mention of year in your post or profile , for your trailer.
If you can find a similar unit somewhere to see if the same condition exists, I'd see if another unit is the same. Otherwise I'd be looking at structure in the rear of your unit. In particular the frame behind the rear spring to the leveler mount.
Have you had this trailer since new ?

It is not level on my van, the frame does flex very easily. I made an adjustment to the molding around the door so now it wont rub when not perfectly level.
