RV Mud flaps

Do mud flaps help on Class A RVs? My towed car gets a little road damage but I guess it could be great over time.

Welcome to the forum, I seem to think so. I have flat towed for 16 yrs with no noticeable real damage.

Use muds flaps on each side, not a full flap across the back. The full flap will trap air under the coach and cost you mpg.

Need to make sure the flaps aren't so long that they hit the ground on bumps because they will throw up rocks onto the toad.

After installing a Full Ultra Mud guard my MPG didn't change any. I still got 10.2 MPG average over 10 years of spreadsheet accounting for every gal. used.

A full rock guard across the back of the MH will prevent any dings on the toad.
