Squeak from under convertible cover when top down

Just checking to see if anyone else has this problem. When I go over uneven road with the top down, I sometimes get very noticeable squeak/creak from right side (US/passenger side)rear at the cover/under the convertible cover. It sounds like the top is bouncing. Is this normal? The car has about 2,000 miles on it.

Are you sure it is not the passenger seat belt hitting the B pillar. Mine flaps with the top down and no one in the seat so I move it over the side of the seat to keep the tang from hitting the B pillar. Might want to try that and see if the noise goes away.

Nope. It's not the seat belt (I get that too). It is very much a creak or squeak noise. I tried to get some video/audio, but there was too much wind noise. We are just starting to get some good top down days in New England so I'll see what I can do to capture the noise.
