Horrible Wind Buffeting

2015 Vista 27N: We have a deafening wind buffeting that can start as low as 45 mph all the way up to cruise. It can come, go and worsen at different speeds, depending on the winds or even what is in front of us. It can be deafening and makes the journey unpleasant. Seems to be predominant on the right side.
No weep hole covers are missing.
I have searched around on other forums and have read some others have this issue and found it to be a mirror issue. The wind turbulence created between the mirror and the windshield buffets against the side windows. One such posts said, oddly enough, when he made the mirror basically flat it subsided. I tried to do this but it rendered the mirror useless beyond adjustment.
Has anyone else experienced this uncomfortable situation? Solutions? It makes what is a pretty decent riding, otherwise quiet coach uncomfortable. Thanks.

Buy a roll of 2" blue painter's tape.


Start taping "the likely suspects".

If you suspect it turbulence caused by the mirror try make a deflector and see if that changes the issue, I would also contact the manufacturer and see if they are aware of this problem and what if anything they have done to correct it.
Good Luck
