Front end skid plate

Hi everone, I am wondering if any one knows of a place where I can purchase a skid plate that goes on the front end of a THOR DP. As fate would have it or bad carma my father picked up his brand new DP and 5 min after we left the dealer and went to top off the fuel tank he did not see the curb was rather tall and took out the front left fiberglass fasha doing $2500 in damage.

I was thinking if thare was a way of puting a skid plate up front this might add ridigity to the front fiberglass cap.

No, sorry. I've never heard of what you're suggesting. I think probably that the metal's thickness required for adequate protection would be weight restrictive and not very cost effective. I'm a believer in keeping as much weight as possible out of the ends of a class A.

I suspect your father will not repeat that particular type of accident in the future.
