Hello, look here at post #8 Toad protection when towing ,click on my photo to enlarge it, this is my set up.
The front was getting hit with road dirt and small stones, stopped it all and the back of the Coach is a lot cleaner now.

Protect-A-Tow. Cost effective, easy to install, easy to hook up and take down. Works as advertised. There are some other brands similar.

I have never needed it towing my Jeeps, but others may feel that they do. Buy a nice grill guard for your Wrangler that protects the radiator through the 7 Slot, in normal driving (not towed) that is where you need the protection. When towed behind the motorhome, it is too close, it is the ones 4-5 car links ahead that do the damage in normal driving.

I have a front engine MH with long rear overhang and standard mudflaps. I only get chips on my Wrangler when I drive it. Those with the full-width rear flap can kick up stones if it is too close to the ground.
