loud inside at 65mph or greater

Our first RV is a 1999 majestic four winds 29'. V-10 ford.. Class c. Driver and person sitting at table have to damn near yell to talk. Has 109k on it, but real clean. It has retreadable (looks like semi-truck tread,like a bunch of squares)tires. Could this be causing alot of the inside noise?

Could be tires. Could also be uneven brake rotors where pads sat on the rotors while in storage for a long time. Did both on our old one with significant noise reductions both times.

With that many miles I would have a good mechanic shop go over the unit. Spark plugs should have been changed once by now at 100,000 but some folks did it sooner. Drive shaft and front end may also need a look.

I have 1999 30ft, V10. It's kind of loud, climbing a hill on a hot day, due to high revving engine and fan clutch, kicking in.

But we can talk to people in the back.

Drop someone off next to the road, and drive by at 50. If It sounds like a jacked up off road truck, its the tires.
