Some people have suggested standing at the rear side of the motorhome and trying to push the body sideways at about shoulder-height. If it moves they say a trac bar will help. I've never tried it so I cannot say but you might want to give it a shot.

I do not know if moving that much weight laterally manually is possible but maybe it is. I'd probably push lower, about axle height, because that's where the trac bar gets installed but maybe it doesn't matter.

If you push shoulder height, you need to watch if its swaying like a tree or moving like a weather vane.

Sway is cured with anti sway or roll bars.

Weather vane movement is controlled by a track bar.

You could stick a long pipe in the trailer hitch and move it side to side. Watch if the rear is moving or the front is. Then see if its spring deflection or tire deflection.

I experienced that while loosening a hitch ball that was way to tight.

Wow complete missed that thanks, still lowering toe is not going to make wander better, neither is lowering caster, you want more toe more caster.

Also rear trac bar can help with sway not just lateral movement if its mounted higher than normal roll center causing a raise of roll center making it harder to lean.
