right rear thud

I've got a dull thud or thump sound coming fom the right rear end whenever I go over a sharp bump, like a speed bump. It's especially noticeable if I'm backing up over the bump, like backing into my barn. It sounds exactly like there's something loose in the trunk, so I made sure the battery and spare tire were tight, and the sound is still there. I've read about the rear differential clunk, but I don't think it's that because it's related to bumps, not whether the tranny is shifting or not. Any ideas what to look for?
