Towing Honda Fit with/without guard

I am thinking about a Blue Ox Kargard or Kargard II Or similar product. I thought Kargard, then found out that it is a lot wider than the car I called blue Ox and was told it is like a universal fit. So I thought Kargard II, the type that stands up in front of the car. That might affect the gas mileage some and a friend said his has deflected stones towards his motor home.
I have a mud guard across the back of the motor home, 4" - 5 " above the ground. I know others have wrote about this before. Did small car owners make the "too wide" Kargard II work?
Or. what about just forgetting it and save the money for paint.

We've towed our Fit at least 25,000 miles and have not had any problems or damage. Unless you do all your traveling on unpaved roads, I don't think I'd bother.

We've towed our '05 Ody both four down and on a KK460 dolly. The Ody does have rock dings from towing four down, but what doesn't after 10+ years of towing? Never bothered with a tow guard, not worth the extra $$ or hassle.

Take a look at Coastline Tow Car Shield - looks like a great product.

I've towed our Fit about 3500 miles so far with no damage. I have a rock guard on the motor home but so far no damage at all. Hope it stays that way...
