Thanks for all the information. Had the Blue OX base plate on my old toad so just had one installed today on my new towed vehicle.
Guess maybe the Blue OX Karguard tilted is the way to go, but I will keep reading and looking into it.
Wish you could use// adapt the Roadmaster Guardian Rock Shield to my Blue OX hitch system. Roadmaster Guardian Rock Shield Review
The Coastliner sounds good too ...but not sure about the scratching etc
This is all new to me as we did not cover the old tow vehicle, but with a new one...we are of course a bit worried about damage. PIA getting a new toad!!!
By the way i have a Winni. 2007 Vectra
