This is my second post on this subject. At around 65 mph i get a rhythmic shake of the coach. Also hear noise sounding like defective tire at that same speed and frequency. This is new coach with new michelin tires. Had tires removed and balanced and air bag height checked. No change in vibration. Any one with similar or any suggestions. Will have 3 T's do their stability package after FMCA Indio.

PioneerRV --

I had some handling issues on my '07 34H Journey. It too had a vibration in it at around 60 mph. Problem was that the two front tires were out of round. Michelin replaced them and no more vibration (also wandered around the road as well).

See my post in the Winnebago Owners Forum under "Steering Feel on 34H Journey".

Are you considering having 3_T's handling packages added to your coach? If so, I would be interested in your feedback.

When my Horizon was delivered the lug nuts on the left front wheel had been loose for a while which wore the pilot allowing the wheel to be mounted off center. Balancing the tires off the vehicle would not detect this, only spinning on the vehicle would pick this up. It was real obvious. Took it to the Freightliner and they replaced the hub, but the wheel was still worn. Take it some place that will check it on the vehicle.

Yes sir, we had the front wheels balanced on the vehicle with the spin machine. I suspect that maybe a tire tread might be separating and will not show up unless tire has weight on it.
Tires are now showing any abnormal wear at 7500 miles on vehicle.
