I have a 38' Holiday Rambler Navigator and use the full rubber Ultrguard. I think you can pick these up at Camping World for a little over $100. Mine works well and protects toad from road debris.

I've read good things about the Blue Ox product that has a net like arrangement that goes over (maybe under) the tow bar and is suppose to work well...... I don't have any experience with it. KarGard II Towed Vehicle Protector for Blue Ox Motor-Home-Mounted Tow Bars You might give Blue Ox a call about it. It doesn't come up on their site but you can find them on the internet. Good luck

Another vote for the solid rubber UltraGuard. I have it hanging 4" off the ground when the coach is in the "travel" airbag mode. I use it with the Protect-A-Tow shield for what I believe gives the best possible protection.

Due to an unfortunate battle between our mud flap and a raised train track, we have not had one for 2 years. During those 2 years we have not sustained even one rock chip on our tow car with absolutely no protection. I am not yet convinced that these mud flaps actually help protect anything...at least based on our experience.

15K miles, no chips. Just regular mud flaps.

We love the Protect-A-Tow. Easy to store, put on and does a great job on our 36ft Allegro.

Another vote for the Ultraguard mega mud flap. It's always there, no install/removal time required, simple, no moving parts.

And like said above, if you go this route - ensure that it is mounted off the ground by a few inches while at the driving height (take your future loading into account) because if it is too low, it will have the opposite effect, sweeping the street as you drive and spraying the toad with every little stone that you drive over

Best of luck

X2 on too low. I sustained significant chip damage when full-width mud flap was 2" off the ground. I cut off 3" and never had another chip.

Definitely a plus to have. Drove many K's of miles, no problems with dings...then...
was forced by heavy traffic to cross over a short piece of angle iron lost in the road. Never saw it. Would not have made any difference, no place to go to avoid it.
At any rate, RF tire just caught it, heard it banging it's way down the belly, and a huge bang!
Stopped ASAP and found it had harpooned the full-width hard rubber, stainless clad shield.
By the projected trajectory, it looked as tho it would have gone square into the radiator of the toad...
I am voting for a good, one-time investment in a QUALITY guard...
have fun!

If you are intested in having the name/model of your coach on the rock guard, Tiffin might have one.

Here is an iRV2 sponsor that supplies Custom Mud Flaps.

Available Only At DuraFlap LLC. Patented DuraFlap LLC custom truck mud flaps are made from the finest quality materials available and designed not to tear, peel, fade, rust or break. Our custom mud flaps are made from a 3/8" polyethylene/rubber blend; with anti-sail and anti-spray capabilities. The anti-sail prevents wind from pushing the mudflaps up, giving your truck increased protection from rock chips. Our exclusive "Rain Grooves" direct rain, snow & road debris down and away from the vehicle. Our truck mud flaps are available with or without polished weights, both with the same high quality materials and protection. We also carry our own custom artwork for truck mud flaps and RVs. Standard weights are set into machined pockets for a framed finished look.

I installed an Ultraguard on my Allegro, and am happy with it.
