Do your mud flaps cover the entire rear of the dual tires?

I just noticed my mud flaps do not cover the back of the tire area completely, leaving a tread exposed as viewed from the rear of the coach.
Maybe this is the reason I was getting dings in the last car. Looking at pictures of my last rv, it appears the mudflaps were larger/wider and extended out a slight bit from the edge of the tires.

Dealing with the QC of tiffin, why am I not surprised......

Unless they do, the front of your toad will take a beating. The guy behind you won't be happy either.

Maybe a truck supply store would have one? Cut it in half and secure it to the existing flap.

Mine cover the full width of the two wheels. I didn't completely trust that, so I installed one of the UltraGuard solid rubber flaps all the way across the rear of the MH. I also use the Protect-A-Tow shield when I'm using the toad. Works for me!

Mine is about the same height off the pavement but full width of the tire.

For me, the full-width rear flap and protect-a-tow would just be bling.

25,000 miles with just the standard flaps, and no chips, see?

The other side is centered and the tire sticks out about a 1/2 - inch on either side.

The side in the picture is past the tire in the inside

You need both a wider and longer flap. With a flap that close to the rear tires, it won't/can't change height as you traverse driveways, so make it as close to the ground as possible (about 2"). This will really keep you from kicking anything up.

UltraGuard solid rubber flaps all the way across the rear of the Motorhome will solve your problem for good. Good luck/travel safe.

I use the Ultra Guard across the back of our MH as well. My rear tires have flaps that cover most all of the tire. Still get some small dings which could be from normal driving.

I said in another thread that we have had the front of our CR-V repainted but it has been our toad for nine years running. We had it in the body shop after being hit in the rear and said what the heck repaint the front.

Here at DuraFlap we can make you mud flaps to fit your tires. Just call us with the dimensions you need.
We suggest you measure to keep them 4-6" off the ground. If you have air bags, first let all the air out of your air bags. Measure for them to stay 1-2" off the ground when you let the air out. This will avoid damage to the fender well due to the mud flaps hitting the ground, which can be uneven.

I just went over this morning to Fleetpride as there is one not too far away and got two chevron rubber flaps. 24" x 24" were 11.99 each and two bags of galvanized bolts for 2.23 each.
Fun part now is getting the holes drilled. It is a bit tight. Hoping my right angle Milwaukee with the unibit will fit in there.
