I have  a really loud squeak    .It gets worse on poorer bumpy roads & stops if on smooth m/way.   It sounds like plastic rubbing together  .    It seems to be  located above rear door area, up high in roof.  The obvious culprit was the awning but I have checked this & screwed it back tight.     Another area could be tv/satellite cupboard but nothing found.  Also may be in Satellite dome itself but it does sound internal.   Any ideas??

You have only ~one~ really annoying loud squeak? I don't think I've ever owned a motorhome that had only one...

On pretty much any van conversion the whole chassis and body flexes on bumpy roads, and parts rub together. My solution is to turn the radio up a bit, though I did resort to headphones in my old Mk2 Transit based camper on longer runs...

Hi Pancho,
                our '07 Nuevo has a "low pitch" squeak that we have traced to the Heiki roof window. Even when its closed tight, it still "shimmys" a little in its frame, can't seem to get rid of it either! Now we know where its coming from, we have decided to live with it!

Try opening the roof lights a little bit or shutting them on to a thin layer of sponge and see if it stops.

I'm afraid that posted the only certain solution additionally if you have hearing aids, turn them off but leave them in.

If you are determined to stop the noise then you can only do so after you've found what is causing it and the only way to do that is to be in the back whist the vehicle is making the noise and grip pieces of van that you think may be the source until you've found it.  What you will find though is lots of different squeaks and rattles caused by floor and walls flexing and you will find it hard to hone in on the one you want.

Best of luck and let us know how you get on.

PS I was once so annoyed by the rattle from the Truma fire that I lay on my back and stripped it down to find the cause whilst Chris drove through Glencoe - I did stop that one!

I had a terrible noise coming from the rear of my Broadway took it to Peugeot and they found there was a modification to the rear springs that needed to be done. It looks like bigger pads between the leaves of the springs
