I've been using the Tow Defender from Roadmaster for several years without any issues to the vehicle I tow.

Go here and scroll down to the "Tow Defender" Several "full time" friends use it and none have had any issues;

I used a tow shield for a few years and did not like it because it was difficult to set up and store. I had a blue OX which was heavy and cumbersome. If I was going to use one the roadmaster seemed to be the best choice.

I currently use a screen ( Blue Ox BX88255 KarGard II Deflector) which is very easy to unroll to install and is out of the way if you are not towing. Roadmaster also has a screen.

I have used both and a custom fitted cover I had made for our trip to AK. Part way into our trip at Whitehorse, YK I removed the full flap from the rear of the MH and the stone problem was solved. The rear flap stayed in Whitehorse. Now I don't bother with any protection devices and I don't have any stone chips in over 15,000 miles.
If I were to do the AK trip again I might consider the windshield cover and the tow shield only because of the amount of gravel roads but down here, no.

X2 on KarGard ll. I wish that I would have turned my exhaust deflector (we have a DP)about 45* as other have BEFORE I used it the first time. We got caught in some nasty stop and stop and a little go and stop traffic. Ended up with a singe in the scree right above the exhaust deflector. Other than that, it is very easy to deploy and stow.
