We've towed our 2009 Malibu for 25,000 miles with just the wheel and rear flaps on the MH. The plastic bumper surround hasn't sustained any marks that I haven't been able to remove with a cleaner/polish. Now, the time a hitch pin came out of one of the attachments points, that did cause a couple of dings, but even that could have been much worse.

We towed our 99 CRV 4 down from 1999 till 2011 over 35,000 miles with no noticable damage. We used no extra protection of any kind. YMMV.

05 GMC ENVOY is towed four down. There are three very minor dings in the front hood. 02 Caddy is towed on a dolly. There is no damage on this car.

Just towed my Ford C Max 3300 miles around the Southeast. Only one tiny chip and I think it could have happened while driving.

But, and this is a big but, this is on a Class A gas motor home with a lot of overhang. The rear bumper is 12 feet away from the rear wheels so probably doesn't get a lot of rocks thrown up by the rear wheels of the motor home. I would expect Diesel Pushers to throw up more stuff since the wheels are a lot closer to the rear bumper.

Yes, you will have damage! I use the UltraGuard solid rubber flap under the rear of the MH, and the Protect-A-Tow between the MH and toad. I feel this gives me complete protection. We took a trip out west last year, traveling over 7000 miles through 13 states, with NO DAMAGE! Works for me!
