If it's the windshield shade, I found it rattles if I put it all the way up tight. I back off a couple of inches and it's fine in my Axis 25.3.

On really bumpy roads, I have a rattle that comes from those blinds up front. It does not sound like a lose bracket but more like a squeak. The blinds are held in place by metal, spring loaded clasps.

I think what I hear is the blind's rail frame or holder rubbing against the metal bracket holding the whole assembly to the overhead compartment above it.

I am not promoting this as a solution but more like something to try. Get some dry silicone spray at the automotive store, one that is made for rubber and glass (NAPA auto parts makes it, in a blue can), use the straw and push some lubricant into the gap between the rail and the bracket. Not too much but just enough to wet the joint. Do all of the brackets.

I plan to do that to my coach the next time I take it out. No guarantee that I will see results because it takes quite a bump to get that squeak to happen.

Good luck!

Many of those types of shades have a piece of velcro attached to the back of each side. The shades are meant to partially down (1 or 2 inches) and the velcro will then eliminate noises from the shade swinging back and forth against the window frames.

If you a double shade system (sun and night) the velcro strips will be on the shade closest to the window.
