2011 Nomad, purchased as new leftover in Nov 2015, 20k miles, stock pipes. Hearing a rattling sound inside the pipes at low speed/RPM. Wasn't there before. Sounds like something may be loose inside the pipes.

Thoughts?

Have you checked the mounts and clamps to make sure they're not loose?

Did you drill out the baffles in the mufflers. It happened on my 13 Nomad 1700. When I drilled the left muffler out, I could not get one plate out and it got stuck. Because it was the left side, I haven't taken the time to remove it to shake the plate out. That can cause a rattle.

An image of a small boy sticking pebbles in your exhaust is the first thing I thought of.
