Sounds like you may have an alignment issue, maybe too much positive camber.

It is possible to have a tow in issue with one tire on a, non steer, axle and no wear on the other side tire.
Ditto, on alignment required.

I had a similar problem. Measurements by a mobile RV guy showed the trailing axle was not to spec. It was replaced and problem solved. Maybe it's alignment. Maybe it's something else. Maybe measurements could tell you more. I wouldn't know WHAT to measure, exactly, but the repair people probably could tell you.
