The question is what system will give my Toad the best protection? Roadmaster Guardian or Protect-A-Tow?

We have used several things. Recently got Protect a Tow. Best protection we have had. Drove 1200 miles in December to Indian and back. Car stayed cleaner than ever, back of rig did not get all full of ick and not any gravel or sand getting to the tow!! We were very pleased. And after we secured the bolts to hook to, it is easy to use.

How does this protector handle: 1. rain load; 2. tight turns?

When I contacted Blue OX about the Protect a Tow system I was told that if my DP was rear exhaust it will damage the shield. They said the only proper way around it would be to have my exhust modified (quite expensive) to go out the side.

Ken,this was discussed at length a week or so ago....I also contacted Blue Ox by telephone and was told the same thing...I'm going to order the Kar Gard by Blue Ox.

Blue Ox has also discontinued the "Kevlar exhaust shield" as well...

Very well in both instances . . . rain does not seem to affect it at all and I can turn my MH "knock to knock" (full left and full right to those who may have never heard the term) without any problems (and my MH has a very tight turning radius).

I would definately recommend Protect-a-Tow. Very simple and very effective system. When I bought mine quite a while back it was not recommended for diesel pushers with rear exhaust but maybe they found something to overcome that problem. There website is www.protectatow.com

The tight turns are not a problem as the unit stretches on one side and folds in on the other. The rain goes thru the fine mesh without a problem. Sorry I wanted to answer these wquestions in my last post.
