Bras have always been a Catch 22 in my view.

Q. Why use a bra?
A. So I and other people can admire my nice paint job.

But you can't see your nice paint job with a bra.

Just my opinion of course.

I have the 3M protective mask and love it. No chips yet. Of course I have only had my RV for two weeks.

The bra looks nice but it traps dirt under it and then the dirt works just like sandpaper on your paint job. Can really make a mess of things. JMHO

Hi, Tom and Cindy!

We have never had a bra on our mh until we bought the Discovery. It came with one. We love it while traveling. The bugs come off easily, and it really protects the grill area.

When we arrive at a campground, we take it off. We only use it while driving.

Just one more opinion. Like my Daddy used to say, "Opinions are like belly buttons. Everbody has one."

Looking forward to seeing you and your new coach at Manatee Hammock.

Love ya,
Cheri

My son had one for his Mustang. He didn't keep it clean underneath and the dirt rubbed off the paint. So practice good hygiene. Art

Hi Tom and Sandy: I have a mixed opion of them. They do help keep the front of the MH clean while travelling, but will act like sandpaper on the paint job. I agree with that I have one. I use it while travelling for the bugs and stone chips, but also because it has a mesh over the lights and stones can break your headlights, I've had it happen. I usually take it off as soon as we get set up. I also do not use it if it looks like rain. Having had and used one if one did not come with the MH I'm not at all sure I would buy one. However, I think the sun screens that go on the front windows are great!! and I would buy a set of those but that's another topic, sorry.
