Motorhome guard, solid or bristle?

Which motorhome guard works best, the solid type or the bristle type? I have read that the solid type works best, but causes a huge wind drag that reduces the mileage. Also, the skirt version becomes almost vertical at highway speeds and does not offer that much protection for the toad.

Ultra Guard. Solid, 4 "above the ground. Any difference in MPG will be negligible.

Protect-A-Tow works fine and does not cause any wind drag. It also helps when driving in the rain to keep rear camera clear.

My Rock Solid tow guard at 4" scrapes when the rear gets low over driveways and such but protects everything as previously mentioned.

Neither, Instead look at the KarGard II by Blue Ox

The full width things if they touch the ground can actually throw stuff UP, this .. Well if anything gets tossed up.. it bounces back down.
