Hello All,
Would like to get some opinions on splash guards, what is the best type to buy?

I have found 3 types: 1) 1 piece type like the Ultraguard, 2) a broom type like the Splash Stop, and 3) a strip type like the Rock Solid.

Which type works the best (on a class A) or are they all just something to spend money on that do not help with road spray and such?

I have the full width mud guard with the broom guard behind it. The broom keeps down the splash while the full width mud guard stops any stones from be flipped back. The broom type by itself has a tendency to fly up and will allow some debris by. So far with more 80,000 miles total on my tow vehicle, which is in excellent conditions, I have very few nics that could be attributed to towing.

I installed the Rock Solid on my Winnebago Itasca Class A, when It was new, and have towed my Ford Explorer all over the country and Canada, have yet to get a chip or scratch due to towing, although I did crack the windshield on the Exp. a few years ago, but I was driving the car and a pickup in front of me threw a rock at me.
I am sold on the Rock Solid

We have the Ultraguard and like it allot as far as the protection it offers. The only problem is the dealer mounted it so it is solid rather than allowed to swing freely. When backing out of my parking space it drags and bends the brackets. So far I have spent and extra $30 to beef up the brackets and they still bend. When we had the broom type on our last motorhome this was not a problem but the protection was not as good for the toad.

Ron, I have the solid Rock&Mud Guard the full width of the motorhome, its heavy, able to swing freely and has done a very good job in protecting my towed vehicle. Have used this type for four years and have not had any problems. Ed
