Rock guard, tow guard mud flap

Does not seem to be a right name - talking about flap that hangs on rear of coach. Advertised to keep dirt off rear of coach and protect towed vehicle. Thinking about adding one and have two questions. 1. Do they do any good? and 2. Of the three types: strips, solid or hula skirt type better?

I did a lot of research before I ended up going with a protect-a-tow. In Nov I bought a new CRV and traveled a lot during the past 5 months. My CAT 3126 likes to blow oil and my old Toad and the back of the MH always had oil, road grime and chips and if it rained the camera would be hard to see out of. With the Protect-A-Tow I had no oil on the CRV and after 5,000 miles not a ding/chip on it either. In rainy weather my camera did not get dirty. The back of the MH also stayed clean. It takes a few mins to hook up, but by the time I run the CRV in neutral like the book says I'm all hooked up. It attaches under the back of the MH, runs under the tow bar set up and attaches under the front of the Toad.

The solid rock guard is good. Be sure you install it according to instructions especially as far as how high off the ground it should be. Putting it lower is NOT better, it just kicks up more rocks. We go to Alaska at least every other year and travel at least 100 miles a year on dirt and gravel without major issues. The grass skirt blows out straight behind the rig and gives little if any protection. Look at passing rigs on the interstates when you travel.
