Yup, mine has a doir swedp brush, no factory installed foam.

Since using my stuff the foam in the stairwell method I have not heard a squeek or rattle in over 400 miles of driving. Much of that on rough roads.

Now for the crashing sound from the back...

Another source of door noise...

On last trip DW noticed that our door closer was hanging out of the vehicle. The screw that holds it to the door jamb had backed out. I reinserted and tightened it.

Afterwards had several short trips where I didn't bother to place my foam vibration damper in place. See previous post. Eventually realized that the door was rather quiet.

Check your door closer screws. I was lucky that all the hardware stayed with the loose closer.

We also have wind noise that bothers me. Some is probably the nature of the beast.

I have been saying since day one that it sounds and feels like a window is open but all are closed.

I plan to investigate the cab over windows from the outside to see if There are any gaps not visible from inside.

Can I put an extension ladder against the side of a Sunseeker?

I do not think our cab is sealed well and I do not think the door is sealed at all the dealer just put some tacky silicone on it but it did not help you can see daylight around out door dealer keeps saying it is because they use clear silicone it is just a mess I hate riding in it

In this thread, If you have not already done so, read posts #9, 11, 12, 14 and maybe 20 if it applies to your door.

One or all may help.

I see no problem with a ladder against the side,,, I extend mine up far enough so that it is the roof level,,, and I pad mine with foam pipe insulation !!!

Thanks. I have foam bumpers on my ladder. Now maybe I can wash the roof.
