You said you noticed a lot of 'camber'. Positive? Negative? How did you measure it? Camber is measured in degrees, and very few at that, normally, and not readily apparent just looking at the wheel.
A new axle
will have positive camber, which is to say the wheels are closer to each other at the bottom than the top so that when the trailer is properly loaded, the flex in the axle will bring the axle back to a 0 degree camber, loading the tires properly across the tread and reducing tire wear. Are you showing unusual tire wear? A bent axle will cause negative camber making the tires wear more rapidly on the inner tread.
We need more information to be able to help you with your issue, if you in fact have a problem. Pictures might help.
