Windshield Protection

We tow a '95 Wrangler behind our '92 Class A Pace Arrow. Yeah, kind of stuck in the '90's there, I know............BUT, we love them and it is a great combination for us.

Yesterday, on returning to our home base, I noticed a small hole in the upper right corner of the windshield that wasn't there before. I suspect the MH threw a rock up and it did the damage.

Right now, the only protection we have is the "grass skirt" hanging down from the rear bumper. I'd like a little more protection than what that offers. Maybe some kind of padded cover for the windshield that won't fly off at speed? Something else?

I've done an online search, but all I seem to come up with are cab covers, and covers to protect from ice and snow.

What do YOU use to protect the front end of your toad? Looking forward to your ideas and answers.

If you have a side exhaust pipe then I would recommend the Protect-a-Tow mesh shield. When properly installed between the MH and toad it will totally protect you against rock chips.

Or get RoadMaster "Alaska" package. Has both the Protect a tow and the Tow Defender. My CR-V came with that setup, but I don't use either of them. Now, if I was going to AK I'd rethink that!
