Rattle on rear right

I am just getting used to my used 2001 CVT. Tell me if this is normal. When I go over a rough part of the road, either repaved area where it's been torn up or a pothole or a manhole cover, I get a rattle that seems to come from the right rear wheel area as I go over this. On a straight away road that's smooth I don't have it. Only going over bumps in the road. Is there something under there that gets loose? Or is this just normal with the suspension and the bumps.

Thanks, guys

It sounds like it is on the outside underneath

really having to do with the wheel, axle area. I was wondering about the shock absorber, really on that side. I notice it more at low speeds--20 mph, going over manhole covers for example than at 40-45 mph cruising on a long stretch. It is particularly noticeable if the left rear wheel goes over a bump and the right doesn't. I plan to take it into the dealer and get it checked, soon. It could be the skirt, I will have to check it, but since it is new to me, hope I can tell. Thanks a lot.
