travel trailer axle question

I was under my trailer this morning painting the frame and noticed both my axles are not straight from tire to tire but both have a slight arc to them starting from middle of axles. Is this normal? Thanks for any help

Yes, they are made that way. It provides camber to the wheels/tires.

I'll thank you for that answer too! I thought mine were bent as well because it looked like somone was jacking on the axle.

How much is a slight arc? My forward axle has considerable more arc than the aft one.
