bugger

The stone guard is really best utilized as a bug guard. My Scamp window is a lot less scratched because of less washing off of bug juice.

Oh, good question, what are those stone guards made out of? Mine has some corrugated stuff that has holes in it. (holes are not factory) really not very pretty looking. would like to fix it up, but I don't think its like that corrugated fiberglass that goes on a carport/greenhouse, but haven't checked.

my stone guard has a sleeve thing on the trailer that the guard slips into. and when raised, it's arms have a locking button, that has long since worn out and is now replaced with carter pins, manually. the stuff I want replaced is framed out just like a window in aluminum.

I've seen a place that sells stone guards. ?? but I'll have to look for it.

Stone guard

Howdy Jana, I went outside a couple of minutes ago and had a look at the front of my TT and have stone chips to within about 6 inches of the belly band. My truck has mudguards from GM that are fairly long. Depending on the tow vehicle you could probably have stones hitting higher and possibly in the window area depending also how some stones would deflect off the tongue or whatever. I have a stone guard on my TT and it`s factory. Look at most stick built trailers and they have stoneguards on the front windows. But actually what I came on here to to tell you was that on another thread there was mention that you could get flat sheet fiberglass at Home Depot about 1/8" thick. May be better to fabricate one from that if you can not get a factory one Just make sure that it is a fair distance from the window when installed and doesn`t touch the window when under wind load when towing.....good luck...Benny
