The Rear Mud Flap is Good until you get into some gravel and then it Kicks UP the rocks!!
Rick is corrrect.

When the rear mud flap contacts the road, it kicks up stones.

I have cut almost 2" off my mud flap.

I've never had any toad damage from stones kicked up.

My Coastliner fit very well and went on in about 20 minutes (first time). Now that all the metal tangs are bent, it should go on faster.

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
Thanks again

Ordered the Coastliner. Coach with tow vehicle ...an SUV came in here at the RV park we are in last night with one. I talked to guy this morning, and he loves it. Has had it a while and has actually washed it in commercial BIG size washing machine in loundry with tide, and let it air dry. Comes our beautiful. Has no problem storing it in it's carry bag. First time he said is the key to gettingit set up...after that it is no problem. He also has snaps on hood it came with to turn down windshield part to snap and hold so he does not have to take entire thing off in campground if he is traveling and just wants to do a quick run to grocery store nearby or a bite to eat after a day of travel.
He said he has several friends who have it also and they all like it very much
He also has the Blue OX tow hitch set up and he did not like the Blue OX Karguard. He however said he knows folks who have the Roadmaster Guard and they love them. So it all depends I guess. I did call RoadMaster and they do not have any adapters to fit theres onot a Blue OX set up...unllike Blue OX..they do have adapter for Roadmaster. So that ended that.
Whatever works for you is the right one.
Good luck with the Mini.
Let me know how you like it.
Thanks to everyone, and I will let you know how it works out for me,.
The company was very helpful when I called and the gentleman most generous with his time and explained everything to me.
Could not be happier with his service and guarantees.
Going to stop by the company in a month or so.
Thanks again everyone.

Since you modified your KarGard towers, have you noticed any changes behind the coach? Different airflow, less smell in car after towing, dings on back of coach?

Thanks for the info!

Can't tell about the airflow ...never noticed any smell in the car after towing so bguess I don't nitice any less now ...I have not noticed any new dings on the rear of the coach since modifying the towers to slant forward. I have noted some sand/grit on the back side framework of the KarGard...
