Front end diesel noise

We test drove a 2011 Damon Avanti yesterday with a cummins/freightliner chassis. Is it normal for a loud engine noise to kick in periodically?

Lol. That's our dilemma. We are pretty happy with the rest of the set up. Not sure we can get past this one.

I wear ear plugs while driving mine. . I really do.

I can still hear other vehicle's horns, the CB and the CD player while driving.
I know it seams odd, but it works well for me.

When i get o a rest area or restaurant I take them out and I can hear much better if i didn't have them wile driving.
