Rv cabin door ratles

Is this just an inherent problem with Rv's ? Prior to our purchase we rented twice an each time the doors rattled when driving.

Could it possible be this?
I had an issue of a rattle on the passenger side slidee rattling when driving. Figured it out that it was the awning arm shaking and hitting itself. I placed a piece of styrofoam between the arms when retracted and fixed.

Try some short felt strips on frame top and bottom, self adhesive. Lucky its not misaligned and hard to close!

Maybe it's just me........but SemperFi states " we rented twice an each time the doors rattled when driving." AND his topic title is "Rv cabin door".

Just exactly WHAT door(s) are we trying to trouble-shoot for rattling?

I'm confused..........maybe I just need another coffee.

Okay passenger door............then I agree you could try self-adhesive felt strips to fill in the slack, or maybe you can reposition the door latch jam?
