I dont think it sounds much like an issue but then again what I see as I read your description could be different than reality, but I think for the "tilt" to be perceptable, it would be worth checking a few things to see why.
Does the floor (with a level) seem to be off as much as the roof? and have you checked the campers inside on the floor (thus proving that the floor is as level as the ground it is on, then measure on top the roof with same level. If floor is level but roof isnt when down, Im still not sure there is cause for alarm either. and certainly, the tanks would be offset with storage area's weight when ready to camp, but again I cant tell you that from here? I would only be worried that something is wrong with springs or axels, more to my point, is something comming loose?
Oh and before you panic about loose suspension, due to me thinking at time I typed this pose, FWIW, my hilo has pads where roof comes down to the stops, some are more worn than others. I assume from a cable out of adjustment so when it is down maybe not resting all the weight on that pad like the others had?
Back to my original slim as it is theory, I thought of one barely plausable thing... IF wheels/tires and everything else are perfect match, knowing that different brands/tire models even, can have different depths of tread, from MFG... Meaning one brand of tire might have 8/10ths of tread when new, another might have 6/10ths inch of tread, which also wears off slightly slower for same (if rated same mileage lasting?) which I guess could explain the possible lean (although, I think tread differences, would be so slight I cant imagine it being very perceptable?) So you have to find the one place that is level when on level surface, then see why other things are not level, least I would want to know? My camper has 4 wheels, so the likely hood (I believe) with people tighter budgets like me, if I had a flat, I might buy 2 tires, not 4... if the 2 I bought weren't exaclty same brand, PLUS the wear of old tires... seems like a slim thread to wonder about... but that is how I roll,,,
Maybe the roof has had repairs?
Maybe you noticed but didnt tell us, but does it look tilted when fully up? Even then it might just been built that way, where something slipped when screwed or welded together and no body told the person that inspects upon final assembly... but just doesnt seem right, I would also be wondering why if the heck it IS NOT level...
Half heartedly I think a slight lean wouldnt be bad, keep water from pooling on top, ya know?
