Anyone using the Towtector full width mudflap system on their dually while towing a fifth wheel? We're planning on some remote travel next summer and I want to protect the front of the fiver as much as I can from gravel and debris. The Towtector looks like a good but pricey product (http://www.towtector.com). Comments?

Ask again(or search this topic) on the MH board, because they usually are seen on MH's. I have read posts from users of these brush type guards kicking up gravel and actually increasing rock chips on TT's and towed vehicles by dragging on the center hump of gravel in most roads. I have no personal experience though.

I've been using mine fo the last 20,000 miles. seems to work well and isn't quite as heavy as the full rubber ones. also its more flexable, so if you do drag it on a curb or over a rock it gives rather than tears
