My new rig.

Picked this up last week. Forest River Grey Wolf 26DBH. Trailered nicely on the way home. Picked up the WD hitch with the spring bars. Purchased Rock Tamer mudflaps that mount on the hitch so they can be removed when not in use. Had to modify a tailpipe so the exhaust does not exit right on the mudflap. Unfortunately, the muffler shop in town did not have 3 1/2" pipe so they bumped up 3" and I welded a bead around it to make a snug fit and put a screw in to hold in place so I can remove it when not towing. I also made a mount for my WD in my shed for storage.

Outfitting everything into her now. Kids and I spent one night in it last weekend and ran through the systems to get used to it.

Nice rig, not to crazy about the smaller bent pipe with a crease seems like it would create back pressure.

I have never seen mud flaps like that before. Very interesting concept and I am always up for learning new gadgets. Congrats and enjoy.

Not my first plan. I am still looking for a piece of 3 1/2 inch, which it why I have it so I can remove it easily when not in use.

Another option is to go with mud flaps that hang about 7" off the ground, just behind the tires inside the wheel well. They would be long enough to protect anything you are towing, plus they will give you great protection for your truck as well.
The 7" still keeps you from backing into the the usual curb or parking guard, and they do not have to be taken on and off.
