Mud flaps

Has anyone tried to put mud flap under a Palazzo yet. It's very low plus exhaust is in the way of the flap I had left over from my previous coach . My toad seems to get a lot more trash on it now without flap.

Not yet but I am looking into getting one manufactured to help protect my TOAD. I would be interested to know if any other Palazzo owners have installed a mud flap?

We had our dealer put one on as part of the deal. I believe it was a Ultra Rock Guard from Camping World.

It had to be shortened to fit the Palazzo. It works so far I am pleased with it.

Bill,

Can you post a picture of your mud flaps and how they fit?

Thanks,
Gary

If you are able to do the measuring, DuraFlap will custom make the mud flap to fit. They even have shorter stainless steel weights to work on the shorter mud flap.
They said they would be doing custom installs at Quartzsite this year if any Palazzo owners are going there.

I have been talking to DuraFlap;

They will build about anything if you give them the measurements (see attached).

I haven't put one on yet. I am planning on going to Quartzite so will look for DuraFlap. Just finished attending the FMCA rally in Indio and I am finding the list of products one can get for a motor home is endless - and exceeds my wallet size.

I see the picture. What did they do at the tail pipe. Looks like the exhaust would hit it if I mount mine that way. I guess you are aired down in the picture?

I will try to get a picture of the exhaust pipe on Sunday.

Yes it is down and frame is on blocks to give tires a rest.

Ok thanks. After seeing yours I'm going to look mine over again tomorrow . I wasn't thinking about notching mine out. My guess is I'll get mine on tomorrow. If not I'll throw it in cargo bay and haul it to Quartzsite and see if they will modify it. On the road again Monday AM.

Rockguard pictures of exhaust

It was 60 in PA this morning so I was able to get pictures of the rock guard and exhaust.

See the following pictures.
