The floor is great everywhere else expect on my side of the bed, and it's been bugging me this whole season. If I get up in the middle of the night or early in the morning I pretty much wake everyone up.

Anyone has suggestions what to do? Call Airstream? I have factory warranty until April and got the extended warranty sold by the dealer. But I have a feeling that if it doesn't get fixed during the factory warranty period I will stay like that and probably get worse.

What's the best way to go about it?

Ours did same thing on side of rear bed. Our dealer removed molding between wall and floor, caulked between floor and wall, replaced molding, problem solved. It's caused by friction.

Same thing exactly with our 28' 2009 International Ocean Breeze. Squeaking molding. In our case, a few more screws fixed the problem.

I also told them about us not getting service in a reasonable time frame. The service writer told me they are well aware of this problem and are going to start cracking down on dealers. I would call Jackson Center and tell them about the problem.
If you can make the trip there I highly recommend it. They were great and the factory tour was worth the trip!
I ended up calling the AS service department in Jackson Center and got the repair scheduled. Looks like I'll be doing the factory tour as well
