Okay, so we have the 'new' coach, time to start adding to it. What type of mud flaps or rock guards have people found to work well with their coach?

Barbara & David; we use the full mudflap that Alpine offers and it works extremely well and is quite attractive as mud flaps go. I am sure that it can be purchased through Alpine's parts store, WRV Accessories, Mike Parker, (509)853-2940. You can certainly also buy other ones that I am certain would work just as well from places such as Camping World, etc.

according to the pusher-diesel "arteest," Pat Gooley of Lake Havasu City, AZ, the loose mounted type that are free to swing are better than solid mount. More give to send a rock down rather than knock it up into the engine area.

The Stainless steel Artwork on the Alpine mud flap I believe is made by Riverside Enterprises. They are located in the Tri cities area of Eastern Washington. They have a good web site I was just reluctant to post the link per forum rules.

Riverside is the high dollar way of doing it. If you are a litle bit handy, here is what I did for both Alpines that I have owned and they are still "going". Buy a pair of black rubber mudflaps at a truck parts store or truck stop. Get the 36 inch size. Lay them sideways and clamp between two pieces of 1-1/2 inch angle iron cut long enough to span the back of the coach and you have a good big mudflap that goes all across the back of the coach. you will have to make two steel tabs that mount to the angle iron by drilling holes. One set of holes to blot to the Coach frame and one set of holes to bilt to the angle iron. Last time I looked mud flaps were costing about $12.00 a pair and angle iron cant be much more. Cheap huh?

Which leads me to a very good question..... Most all diesel coach companies PROUDLY display their mud flap with their name on it...... Why do we need to purchase one when we could be giving WRV THE BEST ADVERTISMENT THE COULD ASK FOR....all around the country like most others....

Wing- Since you get to choose, you could get a flap touting the brand you like best. Newell? Maybe Marathon?

Actually Mike,
while spending over 2 month's at the dealership, I was kindly offered a number of things for the coach {If I was willing to do the work}{And I always bring the tool box}
One thing was a "Beaver" mud flap and I made use of it.
So if you see a Alpine with a Beaver mud flap....there's a strong possibility it's me.

Feel free to post these kind of links. Any links to a third party website than can help another RVer are fine. It's just the links to items or services for sale on your personal website, or that of your business, are not allowed because they are considered personal advertising.

Blades,
there is a solid crome metal piece that runs the length of the mud flap with the imprint of a beaver on each end. {Is this it?}

That is all the chrome and shine !!! Without that, you have a piece of black rubber with a hundred holes in it were the 2 plates are that hold the long chrome Beaver sign up........
I would lose all the class......and look pretty bad..........
However...... If WRV,would like me to advertise a nice Alpine mud flap and would send me one .....free of charge....}Or have one waiting for me someplace.........I'll even put it together myself, no problem....
I would consider it !!!
Actually....I have never seen a Alpine mud flap.
They do not equip them with it.....
