The obvious things (like cans loose in the back, tools in with the spare tyre, loose spare tyre mount, etc) are also very likely. You can crawl underneath and shake anything you see there; nothing should make a noise or hit against the bodywork.
Get a friend to crawl around the back whilst you drive, and hence find the location of the noise. (Fold rear seats for ease of access )
haha i like your thinking it would be my luck that it wouldnt be the boot. i shall ask a friend to drive while i hoak about the boot. either that or im getting my sound system in earlier than expected!
