Whistling or scrapping sound

"I just purchased a 2006 fleetwood excursion. I love it! We are on our first trip when we test drove it we noticed a whistling a scraping sound , thought it might be the bra.... Took it off still have the sound. Could it be air going thru the air horn? Maybe an antenna? Hit seems to be in the upper area in the front of the motorhome. It is worst when wind is blowing more when going down the road at highway speeds. Any ideas?

The side mirrors are the biggest noise makers, but anything that sticks out in the air stream will make noise.

We have a 2007 Fleetwood Excursion and have spent years thinking the whistling was coming from the door. On a recent trip, we tried unlatching the passenger side window and lifting it a fraction of an inch. This fixes the problem.

We can't find a permanent solution but have noticed that the newer coaches have gone to a solid pane window by the passenger seat.

We had a problem with awning arms doing this on motorhomes with the awning arm right at the front of the MH. We also had the door seal causing this noise.
