Tow car protection

I a trying to decide between a Tow Defender or a Guardian. These are both Roadmaster products that will fit my Roadmaster tow bar. Any opinions out there?

X2 on Protect-a-Tow Been using since Nov 2011 when I purchased my new CR-V, not a mark on the front of the Toad. Also keeps the back of the MH cleaner then before.

Another vote for Protect A Tow. However I believe that one of the Tow Defender models is similar to the Protect A Tow, at least from the pictures. I don't know how easy it is to store though.

We use the Guardian, and it's done a good job keeping the front of our Jeep from getting stone chips. Like any other level of protection it has it's limits. When we were in Alaska we still got stone chips on the windshield of both the Jeep and the motorhome. All were from trucks speeding in the opposite direction through construction zones.

I've used the same Tow Defender on my last 3 rigs. In 25K of towing a Subaru, it had no chips other than those from actually driving it. The TW is easy to stow and easy to hook up. I have the TW set about 2" from the back of the coach so it keeps all the crud off of my Jeep and the RV. One of the best thing I ever bought

+1 for guardian. for op's edge, guardian sounds lie a perfect height/fit.
