Full Mudguard

I Have a 2000 Itasca Horizion, rear radiator. I am wondering if I should put a full mudguard on the back of the coach to protect the toad from rocks and should it be a solid or broom style

I'm told that the brush-type guards do very little to protect your toad from chips, etc. The two motorhomes I have owned had/have a solid mud guard mounted halfway between the rear edge of the motorhome and the rear wheels, not at the rear edge. They also had/have truck type mud flaps mounted behind the rear wheels. The three toads I have pulled in the last ten years have not received any more chip, nicks, etc than they would have gotten driving down the road.

I vote for a solid, full width mud guard with rear wheel mud flaps as well.

This is the one we use. Works very well. UltraGuard Tow Guards - 94" x 16"

FWIW, Our coach isnt a DP but we are using the same mudguard as the previous poster.
Between that and the factory mud flaps, it seems to do a pretty good job of keeping the toad clean.
Hope this helps.

I also use the Protect-a-Tow for over five years now and it works very well. I would recommend it over any mud flap.
