Unhappy Squeaks in cabover camper

Our cabover on the Class C squeaks like the devil. Is there a method to fix that that someone has found successful? Thank you for your input.

You may have a screw loose... in the cabover. Most likely the decking, or the decking may be rubbing against the sidewall somewhere. We rebuilt & redecked our cabover. I have very little squeaking now. Short of tearing the section apart & rebuilding it, I don't know what you could do... the decking screws are probably hard to get to. If you can get to the decking screw (if that's the problem) then you might be able to tighten them up (might squirt a little yellow carpenters glue in the hole and screw the screw back in with a screw gun.
