Best flap to protect toad

Looking for a good way way to protect my toad, from dirt and debris kicked up by the motor home, while towing. I flat tow a Honda pilot behind a 36 ft pace arrow.

I read some testing a few years back. They said the broom style was the best, because the more solid ones will often kick up debris. I have one of the segmented ones. It is hard to tell how effective it is since we live on a gravel road and gotten chips on the truck while it wasn't being towed.

Took a trip to and thru Alaska with 2 other motor homes,we all 3 towed, 2 jeep Liberty's 1 Jeep renegade or what used to be a CJ. I had no skirt on my MH, there was one with the grass type skirt and one with the solid flap type. Cant explain it but they both had more stones and or rocks on their toads than I did. Both also had more windshield damage[minor] than I did.I did have protection for my toads headlights. This was my 2nd trip to Alaska, didnt have a skirt either time.

I use the Protect-a-Tow and love it. It keeps the toad clean and also the back of the MH clean also. I takes about 3 minutes to hookup.

After reading a lot of posts on this subject I decided to order the Protect-a-tow today. I will see how it works on my current Toad before I buy a new CRV.

I have not had them on long enough to tell about rocks but the wrap a round sure cuts down on water spray.
