Rock guard how to build

DOES ANYONE HAS PLAN OR DRAWING TO MAKE A ROCK GUARD THAT WOULD FIT FOR A DEMCO TOW BAR. MY MAIN CONCERN IS THE HOOK UP TO THE TOW BAR, IN CASE THERE IS SOME MOVEMENT SO THERE IS NO STRESS TO THE TOW SHIELD IT SELF. MAKING THE SHIELD IT SELF IS NO PROBLEM. I DON'T WANT TO WELD ON TO THE BASE PLATE AS IT WOULD STICK OUT FROM THE BUMBER.
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED

Just a thought: A full timer, friend took his rock guard off and said he had not had an issue. I took my off this year too. I do have mud flaps.

Yep, Ultraguard. In thousands of miles have never had an issue with rock chips.

Try the SHIFT key on your keyboard in lieu of CAPSLOCK - it actually works!

We have the UltraGuard solid rubber flap on the rear of the MH, positioned to hang 6" from the ground. We also use the Protect-A-Tow mesh shield between the MH and the toad. We've never had a rock chip on the toad! I thought about making the rock guard myself, but found I could buy it almost as cheap!

BTW, since you are new and not familiar with all the rules yet, I should point out that using all caps is discouraged. Below is an excerpt from the community rules, which you can read by scrolling all the way to the bottom of the page.

Good luck, happy trails, and God bless!

Took off full width mud flap and I do not have any problems. Stones, etc. Do have mud flaps just behind all 6 tires.

Like Fiesta 48 I also removed the full width mud flap and installed a second set of mud flaps behind the rear factory installed mud flaps. The dust and small stones which collected on my toad have been significantly reduced. Also, the DP engine compartment seems to stay cleaner. Just another option for you to consider and with your Tow Shield in place it would be less stuff to store when disconnecting for an outing.
Has anyone ever used a transportable full car cover on a toad?

WHY FLY, my comment about the use of all caps was not meant to be critical. I just didn't want you to get into any trouble about doing that!
