Every RV supplier sells the "curtain" splash guard for the back of the MH. Do these guards do anything to stop rocks, etc. from hitting the toad? There are also the "shield" that goes on the front of the toad and the "underskirt" that are all supposed to protect the toad.

Any suggestions?

I have had a guard on my motorhome from day one so it is hard to say just how effective it is. I can say that I have only found a little stone around my toad's windshield once and that was on a road that had just been chipped and sealed. I dont see any chips on the car so far. I have not tried the other two products you asked about.

I have a vertical shield for my toad. It's a PT Cruiser. I towed the car to Alaska last year. Here's what I've found:

1. The windshield and front covered by the shield are protected.
2. The area below the shield - generally below the bumper is nicked from towing.
3. The car kicked up stones from towing and nicked the paint on the rear doors. This did not come from the motorhome.
4. If I had to do it again, I'd add the 3M film to the back half of the car, but it is expensive.
5. The horizontal shield that goes between the Motorhome and the car is probably better than the vertical shield.

Hope these ideas help.

W8RLM - Bob

Forgot to ask. Solid or "broom" style guard?
