Could be a tire problem. Check the DOT codes for age of tires if over 7 years replace. Inspect for tread separation or bulges. If that does not show anything have them checked for out of round.

Have you tried moving your wife to the other side the coach?? Lol.. Just kidding my man, it's most likely a bad tire that is rounding on the edges...

Did it do it before you put the new tires on? A few years ago I put 6 new tires on a coach and it vibrated horrible. Had the fronts balanced and everything. Finally found a tire guy who just broke down the tire spun it on the rim, reinflated, re balanced and all was well.

A friend of mine just bought 6 new Samsons and had terrible vibration problems. A analysis by an independent dealer showed that 5 of the 6 tires were severely out of round, to the point where balancing could not correct it. He is now arguing with Samson over replacements. The Samson dealer says that corporate approval is needed to replace them, but Samson wants the tires shipped back to China () so they can inspect them first. Then they will let him know what they decide. And if he wants to roll in the meantime, he has to buy another set of tires to use. Great warranty, huh?

With the newest information I think I would be moving away from tires and looking at chassis/steering components and alignment. It is easy for us armchair mechanics to throw out guesses but it looks like it might be time to call in the pro's and find a good chassis shop..

You say it does it on back roads. Could be the road surface causing bounce and road crown causing pull to right. They seem to crown back roads more than main roads to get rid of standing water.
