Rain Noise.... Driving Me Crazy

We have a 2012 351 RLTS. When it rains out, even a light sprinkle it gets SO loud in the camper you can't hear yourself think. This past weekend our neighbors were in our camper when the rain started. They were freaked out at how loud it was in our camper vs. theirs. There is actually less noise from the slide out areas vs the regular roof. Has anyone heard of a way to dampen the rain noise? I will tell you this. I will NEVER buy another camper until I can sit in it while it's raining outside and listen to the roof.

But it's the best sleeping one can get on a rainy night.

I like the sound. It reminds me that I'm not in a tent. Good point though. We actually got to hear the rain on ours before we bought it.

Our 351RLTS is the same. I had to buy a cordless headphone to hear the TV. Sleeping is not a problem.

Thank you!! I have been trying to explain that to my wife for a long time, but she doesn't quite understand it!

I was raised with five other kids under a metal roof in a Illinois farm house. I long for the days to be able to listen to those sounds again...

I will fall asleep in a heartbeat being under one...

I have a cabin with a metal roof, and when it rains I go sleep in the loft directly under the roof...nothing like it!

I love the sound too, but I think those pillow things that go in the vent holes quiet it down a lot.

Never thought a 5'er would have this.....
