The shelving is factory. The can be found used. I did, but some have been looking longer then I have.
The rock guard is harder to find used.
I think Tom Young at TrilliumRV.com may be able to supply the shelves. He has a rock guard that fits, but doesn't look like the original.
Check out his web page.

Do you travel a lot of gravel roads?
I find here in Ontario most roads are paved and we don't run into the stone problem. So unless your traveling a lot of back roads the rock guards are not really necessary.AS I think I mentioned earlier CTC have a product in a spray can which delivers a Rubbery/Plastic coating which helps with the stones.

Ron,

I think he means for his front window.

Could be right Dave, those are a little harder to come by. With a little corrigated plexiglass and alinimum frameing should not be too hard to made (with a pattern or from a picture ?.

Doesn't seem like it would be too difficult to build (she says in a small voice)

If anyone builds one, I want to know how they did it. I would love to have one on the back windows of my trailers.

I know Tom has one for sale at Trilliumrv, look under his parts list. I was going to buy it but got a new one from Escape trailers but they don't have any more. Here is what a new one looks like. I also like the retro look of the old ones but I couldn't find one near by. Hope this helps.

Awesome information. Lots to think about. Certainly appreciate your willingness to share your experiences and pics.

I was talking about a window protector. I thought it was called a rock guard. I think a hand made solution is possible.

Can you recall the name of the rubbery stuff they have at CTC? Someone sprayed something on the lower quarter that is bumpy but not very attractive.

This is what I plan to put on my trailers.

Thanks Donna!

Good news. CTC sells a product called ' Rocker Guard' ( on sale this week ) a rubberized undercoating. Comes in beige or black. Real happy with the results. All for under $20. Will post a final pic when I remove the paper.

I was also talking earlier about the stove. Although not 100%, I'm satisfied for now and will be moving onto other projects.

As you can see, I wasn't kidding about needing a new front window protector. I'm looking into using fiberglass and that spray stuff, and just attach it to aluminum framing, screwed together using lock tight.

As well, I have contacted the rv place in Arizona and might have an rv place in London Ont for the rear shelving. If possible - please alert me if you see such and item become available. Many thanks.

Final stove pic. Not 100% happy but the new cover allows us to move on to other projects.
