We're setting up our new Honda CR-V for towing and are trying to make a decision on how to protect the car from road debris. We're having the Roadmaster all terrain Sterling tow bar installed.

We're looking for any any suggestions/opinions from anyone who has or is currently using the Roadmaster high impact hard plastic Guardian rock guard and/or the Roadmaster mesh Tow Defender.

Thanks for the help.

I have towed CRVs for almost 50,000 miles. I have a Roadmaster Guardian rock guard that sits in my garage. I did use it for trip to Alaska but have not put in on since. I really have not suffered any damage and I do not like the hassle of having to store it (although not a big deal since I usually just stuck in under the coach on my Alaska trip.). I guess I find the simpler I keep things the better I like it. I use a Roadmaster Stowmaster 5000 that was my dad's before me. While it is old fashioned to have the tow bar on the car, I can hook up and unhook faster than my brother with his Blue Ox on his mh. I would not bother with a shield even when I make another trip to Alaska.

You pick up dirt with or without the shield. While it probably helps a little, these shields are, in my opinion, vastly overrated. I do have mud flaps on the mh that are set as close to rear tires as possible and extend to within an inch or so of the ground.

I also have the Roadmaster Guardian. I stopped using mine for a while as well, as I just got tired of spending 20 minutes hooking up and unhooking my entire toad. I used it on a recent trip because I knew I was going to hit some bad weather. It kept most of the road muck & mire off of the front of my dingy, so I guess I'll start using it again.
