I have a problem with my motorhome that i am having trouble identifying. 
When i take up drive from a standing start and change gear i get a single knock from front offside, sounds to me like its a C/V joint but they are only 2000 miles old. Both side C/V joints feel like they have the same amount of play in them. 
Any ideas welcomed as not sure where to look now

Bushes in suspension arms/wishbones, gearbox or engine mounts, possibly ball joint. What make and model? Can you repeat the knocking noise by engaging clutch and releasing last minute and re-engaging like rocking the camper van?

Engine Mounts are a particular weak point on those. Check them

Posted quickly yesterday  - Now found some evidence.   I changed mine and made big difference.   Worth changing for the cost as they are weak point.
