Question Forza Toad Protector?

What is anyone out there using to protect their towed from rocks and such behind a Forza? Our current towed is being retired and I am looking for a new solution. I had a Tow-Car Cover for it but I think the company went out of business or was bought out. Is there a mud flap solution that works for the Forza? Is a screen or shield in front of the towed better?

What are your thoughts and experiences?

I bought a Road master tow defender for my Blue Ox tow bar so far work pretty good. The MH came with a Ultra guard full width flap the I shortened because the previous owner had it dragging on the ground

With the Forza, the issue is the exhaust outlet out the back doesn't allow most of the newer guards to work. I installed a Blue Ox KarGuard for our Toad. Once you get use to installing/removing it, it's simple to do. Wife and I work as a team to do it.

You have a lot of options, Roadmaster Tow Defender and Guardian. Just do a search for RV Mud Flaps and start from there. Lots of companies make some specifically for the Forza or get one made the way you want it. Some will go on the bumper and some slightly ahead of it or even attach to the receiver. Happy hunting

We are happy to custom make the right size mud flap for the back of your coach.
First check to make sure you have good wide and long mud flaps inside the fender well.

Oh Yeah, I forgot to mention. You could install mud flaps behind the rear wheels like I did. Some sheet metal, 36 inch long rubber mud flaps with anti sail brackets a few self drilling screws and there you have it, professional mud flaps at 1/4 the price.

For the fender well mud flaps you may want to use a polyethylene material thick enough to not fly up. Then you can go without an anti sail bracket. The poly material will last much longer and stay looking new for years. Just make them to not touch the ground when you air down. Put them about 1.5-2" off the ground at that point. If you have no air ride, place them about 5-6" off the ground.

For the money I would buy a Roadmaster tow defender. It just rolls up and stays in place on the hitch and it clears the exhaust.
