Our Holiday Rambler came with one from the factory, but the PO had removed it before we bought it.

There are countless posts on this forum debating whether or not the full rear mud flaps are a good idea. The majority are against them, and have removed them off their motorhomes. Rock chips and paint damage on towed toys are the main reasons. Some say the big flapper kicks up more road debris. Some have had no adverse effects.

My motorhome also has factory mud flaps behind each set of duals. We have towed our Jeep or boat for years, and have had no damage to either without the giant flapper out back.

After investigating replacement costs, I decided to just leave it off.
I think they look good. You have to decide for yourself if they are worth it.

I don't think there's any concenses on their use. I'm at a regional FMCA rally and looking around it looks like most of those that came with the flaps still have them and some that didn't have added them.

Hi ! Welcome to IRV2! We're sure glad you joined the gang!

I can't suggest a source for the rear flap with the manufacturer's name on it.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Friend of mine has a Winnebago Tour with the large flap--damaged it severely when going thru a dip, chose not to replace it. They can be pretty high-dollar for the personalized ones.

Rock guard is a generic name for a rear hanging solid flap. There are various brands, e.g. Ultra Guard, Rock Solid, etc. The ones with the RV brand name (or other logo) are usually called "vanity" flaps or guards. RVers will debate endlessly about their value or risk, so I won't go down that road here.


Duraflap will custom make any lettering and size you want. Width and height are key factors, so maybe a gift certificate for your hubby would be the best way to make a gift of it.

If you do any gravel roads don't get a 'rock guard'. It will throw rocks at your towed vehicle. During our Alaskan trip we saw folks actually removing them and saw a layer of big rocks laying at the base of their tow car's windshield. We didn't have one on our MH and received absolutely no damage towing on gravel roads for 8 years full-time.

Once when it was raining hard going through Salt Lake City just for something to do I began watching motorhomes towing going in the opposite direction. Those with the rock guard had a arc of water being thrown at hood height. Those without a rock guard had the water aimed at the tire area.

My Alaskan experience exactly. I removed the flap in Whitehorse, YK and it remained there forever.
