Thumbs up

I am thinking of getting something like an Ultra Guard Mounted on Trailer Hitch such as this:
http://www.shoprvparts.com/product.do?no=17391F

I have also seen guards which are made up of sections, not one solid guard and others guards which are make like a brush. Any ideas or experence as to which would work the best (best for the money is also a factor).

Anyone using these? I believe I had seen a topic or two concerning them in the past.

As always thanks for your help in these things.

Adrian,

I just use rubber mud flaps on my F-150. I think they were $10 at Pep Boys.

They stopped the rock damage to the Casita.

We use a similar set up. Like in the photo at the link you posted, our rear bumper has a curve to it. The top of the mud flap is straight. This photo shows how a sloppy road surface can send splatter above the mud flap set up.

Because our Road Wings were made from square tubeing we were able to add a short peice of mud flap to the top that eliminated the splatter back on to our Oliver. We added it with some screws. Here is the way it came out. we have about 11 thousand towing miles on the set up with no damage to the gel coat on the front of our Ollie.

We've used EnKay Rock Tamers for 17,000 miles, and not a ding or scratch yet.
