Mud flaps for Allegro Bay

I have a 2006 Allegro Bay. I am going to be pulling my Jeep this year for the first time.
I assume that I need a need a rock guard. I do not want to do any drilling on my fiberglass if possible. Anyone have any suggestions.

Thanks, Leo

There are different opinions about rock guards and whether they do more harm than good. I have a Protect-A-Tow like in the link below. I think it is great. I recently traded in my 2008 Saturn Vue with 13,000 miles being towed and it did not have one rock chip. It also helps keep the rear of the RV and the tow bar clean. It does require drilling 2 holes in the RV and two in the towed to install the eyelets but it was a very simple install for me.

Mine required 4 holes in the RV fiberglass and two on the Jeep.

For my coach side eyelets....I zip-tied an one inch square aluminum bar horizontally with (4) eyelet bolts spaced as needed. When I sell her, all comes off, leaving no holes.

Take a look at the DuraFlap.com site. They sell mud flaps for the back of your coach. They hang from the frame, not the back of your coach. Most motor homes have holes already in the frame to hang the mud flap from. Sometimes the holes need to be drilled.
Take a look at the install directions.

We bought the mud flap from Tiffin. Their price was competitive and I liked the Allegro Bay name on it. Attaching was no problem since the holes in the frame lined up perfectly.
And I see you are at from Orange beach. Love that area, in fact we just purchased a site at Bella Terra RV Resort. Can't wait to spend more time there.

You are correct and I stand corrected. Mine too required 4 holes in the coach.

Hi Leo, As you can see in my photo, there was a full width rear flap that went down to approximately 8" above the ground, my engine compartment was always really dirty, bad! I read and studied up on this subject and found my long rear flap was the cause of this condition, so I cut it down(12" now) and my engine compartment dirt and dust problem was all but gone! Wonderful......and as you can see, a couple of years later when trying to find something to protect the front of my Jeep, the Protect-A Tow goes right under the rear flap and attaches to 2 eye bolts on each side and then to the front of the Jeep, sealed off really well, works great, and the back of the Coach sure stays a lot cleaner!
