Protect-A-Tow

Does anyone know how well this product works, how difficult or easy is it to install. It looks simple enough, I wonder too how durable the material is and if it will hold up for several years of use.

t post# 8 Toad protection when towing and click on the photo to enlarge, woulden't travel without it after having it! Can say enough about it, the next step for toad protection is a inclosed trailer. The back of the Coach stays a lot cleaner with this also.

We have one as well and it is a must have if you want to protect the toad. Installation is easy and it takes all of about two munites to set up and take down. I would highly recommend it .

We bought ours a couple of years ago. Very easy to initially install, very easy and simple to take on and off. Very durable. Appears to be in as good a condition today as the first day we used it. Makes a real difference in protecting the toad. We highly recommend it.

I have one. The only negative I can think of is it does pick up all that road oil & grime that would normally get on your tow vehicle. It can get pretty dirty so it needs to be cleaned every now and then - oh, and wear gloves when removing/installing.

Has anyone used one of these with the exhaust out the back? Will the material hold up to heat?

Hi, I have one and have used it for about 18 months. Works great but the factory said I would need to turn the exhaust out the side, which I had done at a diesel truck repair shop. Cost about $100. Otherwise it would melt the material. Good luck.

Look at post #2 , click the link, go to post #8 and click on my photo and enlarge it and you will see I have a rear exhaust, I had a tough time getting it loose from the muffler to turn it but with some heat form a torch I got it, no melting yet.
