Mud Flaps

I asked this same question on the Scampers forum.

Does anybody use the mud flaps that clamp onto the receiver tube ?

I don,t but was told by Class A Motor Home owners that its a complete waste of money. The best is to have a real good set of mud flaps behind both rear wheels.

This is what I was told.

I do, I do and usually the mud flaps/stone guards are used behind our '06 Dakota p/u. It has the taller wider tires associated with the R/T model. Seems to work well enough but can prove to be a royal PAIN to use properly on short(er) hauls. Storing them when not in use is a whole nuther can or worms, IMHO.
The truck also has the stock, but fairly wide NoPar factory flaps mounted.

Never used one of those things personally, but a few friends have them. They reported losing a couple of miles-per-gallon from their air flow resistance. Sort of a parachute effect creating additional drag. I just have the factory mudflaps that came on my truck. Seems to work ok most of the time, but when we went to Virgin Valley in northern Nevada during a rainy period...Boy what a mess! That ash-mud sticks like glue to anything and everything it touches. By the time we got to the Royal Peacock Opal Mine I think my truck and trailer were about six inches taller and the whole front of the trailer had three inches of the stuff stuck to it. Wouldn't even hose off without rubbing with a stiff brush. Imagine that red Georgia clay on steroids! I don't think that one of those bumper flaps would have helped much either in that case, other than they would probably collect even more mud and probably break off under the added weight, but I digress...
