Lil Bigfoot frame rails slant inward?

Hi there,
We're still investigating getting our axle replaced. Our trailer repair place tells us that the rails on the frame slant inward toward the front, which makes replacing the axle more complicated. Is this standard for a little Bigfoot?

They are discussing with the manufacturer, so I'm sure will get good info. But they do say with a standard frame, almost any axle would work, but with this one, getting a replacement attached will be more complicated.

Has anyone else experienced this?

Best,
Ellpea

If you google this site there have been a few threads on the topic of replacing the axle on the lil Bigfoot. It appears who ever you are dealing with is correct - the frame will need some modifications in order to permit a new axle install.
