You need to weigh the trailer on a CAT scale. No amount of guessing at weights will tell you what you need to know.

Weight adds up really fast!

And I really doubt your axles got bent sitting in a campground. As mentioned above you would have had your jacks down and even 1500lbs static load is probably less stress than 600lbs load bouncing around going down the highway and over bumps.

Hopefully your warranty covers you. Although it might not if the dealer thinks you overloaded the trailer.

You may need to see if your tires are inflated properly.
If you haven't weighed your trailer, you should be running your air pressure at the maximum cold pressure. Typically on a 15" trailer tire it is 65 lbs.

I teach tire safety seminars all over the country. If you have questions please do not hesitate to contact me. I will be happy to answer your questions.

You will get all sorts of comments on forums. Most of the time they are very accurate but sometimes...

Let me know if I can help
