After trying several arrangements and products over the last three years, here's what I've found:
-Bra on toad, over time, will damage the vehicle's paint (abrasion) and does not protect the windshield
- Protect-A-Tow does a pretty good job of protecting the toad, but is a bit cumbersome (and often a slobbery mess) to handle
- Roadmaster Guardian works great and is fairly easy to handle
I did add little mud flaps, they are about 8 inches tall, on the outer lower corners of the guardian to provide a bit more protection (our little Scion toad sets pretty low in front).
So, on a budget, Protect-A-Tow is a good choice . . . otherwise I'd go for a Guardian (or suitable similar alternative).
