    Thats a good question??
    It could be normal as it depends on how the weight is distributed inside the vehicle, not only furniture but what he has got stored inside as well:RollEyes:
    it certainly wants investigating

    Don't ignore possible weak rear spring , as this will cause front to drop

    Also if on an Alko chassis it may have broken or collapsed rear torsion bar (very expensive repair)
