Vibration, Resonating Noise

Kind of long post but trying to give as much info as possible to get good advice. I'm the 2nd owner of a 2015 Winnebago Vista 27n on a Ford 2014 18k chassis. I purchased it a thousand miles from home back in July with less than 7k miles. The drive home was good other than a reverberating noise that I thought was wind turbulence produced by the mirrors deflecting air against the side windows, aged out tires out of balance out of round, etc. The coach had the original tires on it, too, so I tried not to be to critical until I got it home and had new tires installed as well as an alignment. Well that's all done now and I still have the obnoxious reverberation. Yes, its like someone pounding on a glass window. It comes on goes at times but overall is pretty constant above 50 mph. Today is only our third trip with the coach. The first two were only 1 hour drives in which 30 minutes were highway. Today was a 4 hour trip mostly highway. So today I walked around inside the coach while the other half was driving. I do NOT think the issue is what I originally thought! We don't experience vibration at our feet in the cab area or in the steering wheel. Nor do I notice the vibration in the rear even standing right over the rear axle. I first noticed our cat shaking while riding on the sofa which prompted to get up. Right when I got about 5 feet behind the cab area is when I felt the vibration shaking the sofa and even the sink cabinet across from the sofa. So again, I walked to the rear of the coach and stood right over the rear axle and no vibration. It's strictly in the middle. So once parked, I looked underneath and I can see a drive shaft joint and frame mount right in the vicinity of where I felt the vibration. Does this sound like anything anyone else has experienced? Could I have a drive shaft issue? It's really obnoxious and makes an otherwise nice drive a bit annoying. Thanks in advance.

RE: King pin lock

I have owned a fifth wheel for over 14 years. Ten of those it was in a storage lot. I never used one and never worried about it. If it makes you feel comfortable, get one.

RE: RV furniture

Skip the "RV" furniture. Extremely overpriced and quality is nothing to write home about. We replaced our recliners in our LS fiver immediately with theater seating upholstered in cloth. We got it at Wayfair for $700. Sofa will be more difficult due to the depth of most sofas. That was a challenge but we found one.

RE: Value of used RV

NADA is generally high. Certain types and/or makes don't stay on the market especially if priced correctly. I have a friend with a beautiful, pristine 7 year old high-end fiver for sale and has it priced under nada and has not had any offer and only 4 inquiries in 10 weeks. I think a lot is price and brand driven as well as geographic regions, too. RVTrader seems to be the best place with the most exposure. Price it fair, describe it accurately, and also look at the competition and their prices. Good luck.

RE: Tire life

I replaced my 17.5 GY G114's last May that were produced late 2014 strictly due to age. They had about 22k miles on them and looked like new. I just didn't want to chance it based on the "age-out" theories.
