What noise are you talking about? Outside traffic, inside rattling? the person in the other seat talking too much?


Specifics might help with an answer and if it is one or two there are previous threads that cover various solutions. Three, I am not going to touch.

What kind of noise? Where is it coming from?

I see you have a class A. If it is engine road noise, many people have pulled the front carpet and doghouse, and applied dynamat like material. Dash noise, some have plulled the dash and added insulation.

Racket in back; we put paper plates or dish towels, between items, to keep the noise down.

Another guessing game. Class C? Class A? I'm guessing it's one of them. The biggest noisemaker on my last class C was the kitchen ranges burners and the metal brackets holding the pots and pans above the burner. Next was kitchen utensils, pots and pans stored away with no cushioning between them. I owned 1 class A and 1 class C, and neither has been even close to quiet going down rough or semi-rough roads.Which are common these days.

Towels in the range, towels in the cupboards. Then I removed and replaced the noisy trifold shower doors. The other issue was the entry door which needed adjustment to stop the rattling.

Noise from a FW? Unless he has clunking from his hitch. Or he bought a new rig and didn't update his profile.

With such an inadequately explained question, I think most folks would be inclined to provide smarty pants answers like the following:

1) Roll the windows up.
2) Stop lighting firecrackers.
3) Get back onto a nice smooth paved road.
4) Replace the flat tire.
5) Put a muzzle on the mother-in-law.
6) Your better reply here.

I have nearly the same setup, actually the only noise I hear is the occasional hitch clunks from the puck bed adapter to hitch rail. Usually taking off from a full stop. And occasionally I hear the DW if I miss our turn....

Sorry i posted this in Class A motor homes. Do not know how it ended up in fifth wheels as well. I was considering purchasing a Class A. Test drove one and there is a lot of noise.

There has not been any response from me here because i did not know this post existed in fifth wheel thread.

So again I apolagize.

Leave the kids at home.
Leave the wife at home.
Leave the dog at home.
Drive slower.
Get less aggressive tires.
Clean your air filter.
But a more aerodynamic vehicle.
Buy a more aerodynamic trailer.
Buy an electric vehicle.
Buy a tent.
Turn down hearing aids.
Turn OFF hearing aids.
Earmuffs.
Noise blocking headphones.
Put fingers in ears.
Turn the radio down.
Turn the HVAC fan down.
Roll the windows up.

I can't think of any other options.

Cover the doghouse with sound deadening and I was thinking of finding those clear plastic covers that go over the windows on a car and adapt them for the front side windows on the motorhome to cut down on wind noise from the cheap side windows

Your thread wa moved to the 5th wheel forum because you didn't mention what RV you experienced noise with, and your profile lists your RV as a Jayco Eagle 319 MLOK.

As I mentioned in my earlier post, I'll move the thread back to the Class A forum, to keep it better clarified for answers. Sorry for any confusion it may have caused.
