You ever driven a gasser on the F53? I've had three from different manufacturers - noise is part of the game. And I think manufacturers could care less if it's loud or how it rides or any real quality for that matter, as evidenced by the number of complaints and warranty work back ups.

Interesting. I have an '04 Itasca class A on the gasser workhorse chassis, and it is not loud at all, other than some engine noise when downshifted on a grade or when the fan clutch kicks in, but even then it's not bad. My wife and I have no problem holding a normal conversation while going 65mph.

You will probably have to caulk the noisy opening. i had to caulk around my windshield due to some delam right behind it. I use painters tape to tape over the weep holes at the bottom of the side windows. It makes a huge difference. I remove them in the rain and when I'm not traveling. The blue makes it eaier to remember to remove it.

To the OP. You can get ready for your hood to come unglued.

I have the same model, although it's a 19. And I do not have that issue. Winnebago is one of the few A's which use a full metal cage up front and an automotive type windshield. (i.e., no gaskets). I think you might need a re-seal somewhere.

I seems pretty unlikely Winnebago built and test drove this model and said "wow it's so noisy in here you have to yell to be heard, Okay let's build a bunch oh these."



True but from my experience with campers this may be true too:

"It seems pretty unlikely Winnebago built and test drove this model."
