Booming underbelly pan

Especially when the weather is warm, the under belly of our '14 Flying Cloud 30 makes a "boom" / "Oil can" sound when we walk toward the door.

It doesn't matter if the door is open or closed.

When we asked our favorite dealer, they said that some units just do that.

Well, we don't like a booming floor on our fancy Airstream!

Any advice?

The only thing I can think of that wouldn't be difficult might be to pop rivet a piece of
1/8" x 1" x ?" aluminum strip across the suspect panel to act as a stiffener. Might do the trick.

Use something thin and hard and make an X in the bottom panel, an inch or two from the edges. We had the same issue and that fixed it.
