Unhappy 2012 Nomad noise from drive or motor?

HELP ANYBODY! I got a 2012 Nomad with 9000 miles. When you are at a steady speed like 45 to 48 mph I start getting a weird ( scraping sound ..like metal rubbing metal) sound. If you give it more gas it goes away and you can hit a steady cruise speed of around 55 and it returns, same at 65...I've had it in 2 shops with no luck finding or fixing my problem. If you put a small amout of pressure on the clutch while keeping the gas on, its goes away and returns as soon as you release the clutch>>>>. anyone fought the battle before? Thanks

Does it do it in neutral? And does it do it when stationary? Maybe it's not an engine problem but a drive problem.
