Clinking noise when going from Drive to Reverse ?

I have a new 2017 Jayco 29 MV . When I am in drive and shift to Reverse or vise versa I sometimes get a clinking noise . It has 9500 miles on it and has been doing this since I bought it .
Sounds like a u joint . Took it to a Ford truck dealer today . They said it was ok . Anyone have this problem?

Any way you can get down beside it and listen while someone shifts it from D to R? You may be able to pin-point it then. Have you had it since new?

It could be just a resonating sound coming from the drive line tubing. I may do a harder than normal shift every now and then. If you aren't feeling any odd vibrations, you are most likely good to go. Drive line vibs usually start to be real noticeable around 50 mph.
Happy Glamping.

Have the same noise in 2016 Greyhawk. Had it checked by Ford and by an independent truck service center and all have said that it is normal
