The rear axle needs to be aligned.
Something may be warn or detached.

You need an all-wheel alignment. It sounds like the rear axle is out of align. If you are near Orlando there is no where better than Josam's.

Maybe a broken spring or center bolt.

I'm not familiar with your model of coach. Does it have leaf springs in the rear? If so, it has happened that the rear leaf springs are mounted wrong onto the rear axle, which will make the vehicle drive crooked, or 'dog track'.

A good truck or alignment shop can fix this easily.

No leaf springs - the Ultimate Freedom has air suspension. Still can have a cock-eyed rear axle, though. Get it to a competent truck alignment shop and have them diagnose the problem.

Is that a second question? Not sure what it might mean...

Your description supports Stuhly's diagnosis.. I would get a full suspension inspection.. Replacing a spring is easier than you think.. About 1 hour labor by a pro should do it, 2 if I do it.

And yes I have done it Several times on assorted vehicles.

This and Gary are correct. A full chassis alignment by a large truck alignment shop is in order. A tire could be mounted incorrectly but I don't believe it would cause serious "dog tracking".
