Default High speed chime

I purchased a 2005 Roadtrek RS Adventurous with the Mercedes diesel engine (Sprinter chassis). Driving at freeway speeds of 70 and when the road bounces the unit, I have a chime that rings several times. Haven't found out what it is. Does anyone know if the Mercedes diesel has a high speed chime?

Is it an electronic sound? (not mechanical like metal on metal)

I don't know what chime warnings the Sprinter has.
Maybe taillights?
Seat belts?

I think Sprinter are all speed limited in North America. The lowest I read is 74 mph. I just haven't come across any mention of a warning chime.

My Chevy was speed limited - the motor was just cut-out at 90mph - no warning. Vans are speed limited based on the tire speed rating I think.

Been out of touch. Chime is an electronic sound. Next trip, I'll see when it happens and record the conditions. May give some indication of what it is. Thanks for the thoughts.
