Uneven Trailer tire wear

Dual axle camp trailer. You can see the tire in question; the other three are in great shape with normal wear. Should I have caught this earlier? Probably. But here we are. Obviously the tire needs to be replaced, but is an alignment something I can easily do at home? Or is it a bad bearing?

I would check axle camber, if the spindle is bent, or bearing are bad / loose (easy to check, lift axle up check for play in wheel)

These guys are your friend for $200ish.... Well worth the cash IMHO vs blowing that tire and destroying your trailer.
This one. ^^

Check your bearings first, since you can do that yourself. If they check out, make an appointment to get the thing aligned.

My money is on a bent axle. Camp trailers are built as cheaply as possible and if they can get away with a lighter duty axle and be barely under the max weight, the do it.
