Trailer: Former Casita 17 ft owner

My F-150 came from the factory with mud guards; molded plastic pieces behind each rear wheel.

When I towed my first Casita, I broke the LF clearance light twice and put a hole in the grey water drain line from rocks.

I went to Checker and bought rubber mud flaps for about $10. I attached them to the mud guards and they hang to within 2" of the road.

That totally cured the problem with rocks.

I find that the factory mudguards on my Toyota Sienna work well for the intended purpose, which is to protect the van; not just for looks. A line from where the tire pulls away from the road past the bottom edge of the guard just misses the rear bodywork - but then heads straight for the lower front panel of a trailer. Thus, assembling the add-on protection is on my to-do list.

In the mean time, the Boler gelcoat is getting a few more chips, and the aluminum panel on the front of the tent trailer we towed to the Northwest Territories (including 300 km of gravel) looked like someone had opened fire on it with a BB machine gun...

Information is good. Lack of information is not so good, but misinformation is much worse. Check facts, and apply common sense liberally.
