I got under mine and drilled a small hole and pop riveted the flap to the cross iron. Worked great.

Obviously to protect the mechanical step. But it seems to be very firm in place. So my search continues. Hope somebody has had this problem and figured it out. Thanks for the help.
Is the rattle at all speeds?
Check your front wheel center hubcap and or the bolt caps.

Found our rattle was the screen door. Easy fix, small strip of weather strip.

I checked the mud flap and it is the sound I have been trying to find for the last year. Thanks for the help.

I had my coach at the factory twice and complained about the noise both time and they said it was fixed both times. WRONG I took the coach out last week and had the same problem. I will check the mub flap and see if there is any signs. Thanks

Well I am driving to Nashville and yet took all of ten minutes to realize that my rattle was not the mud flap. It is out side but I can't pin it down. I guess I will teach the DW to drive so I can try to pin point Ito know it is going to shake rattle and roll but this rattle drives me nuts. It even bugs me when I take out my hearing aids.
I looked at the door and I don't think that's it.

Mine was the mud flap also. Basically there was a sheet metal screw sticking out of the stairwell and the bracket for the mud flap would bang against it when you got up to speed. Got my saw and wacked off the screw then added another screw to the mud flap which only had one. (Probably to save weight on the coach)
Problem solved. So nice with no banging going down the road. Now to stop the kids from banging.

Leave them at the first rest stop. Just kidding, enjoy the noise they produce, so soon they'll be gone and the quiet is deafening! Voice of experience here!

Phil,
Take a look at the bottom cover piece on the awning. Mine is loose and I think that is contributing to the rattling.

I had a similar noise, traced it to the stairwell cover when it is in the retracted position
