Rock Guard or fringy Rock Guard on a National Surf Side

Can the Rock Guard or mud guards be installed on the back of a 2006 National Surf Side Motorhome?

The solid rock guard can be installed if you add a piece of angle iron across the frame where it meets the rear cap. I found the solid rock guard caused more rocks to hit the front of my towed vehicle.
What I ended up doing was creating larger mud guard just behind the rear tire made from truck mud flaps. I als build mud flaps for the front tires.
This has almost eliminated and rock damage on my towed vehicle

I have had an '01 Tradewinds 7390 LTC for ten years now and it has the solid rock guard and have never had a problem with rock damage. They are much better than the fringy ones. Just make sure it's hanging down far enuff to work.

Thank you, Big Dog....

Yes, the motor home dealer that I purchased it from said the same thing about the hula skirt one......I have ordered the solid one, from them... He said he may have to trim it some, but would take care of it....and weld the piece to hold it under the chassis.....Bankston, here in Huntsville is taking care of it....

I bought the Tow Defender out of Canada in November 2011 when I bought my Honda CR-V. To this day there is not one ding/damage to my Honda or the back of my MH. It is really a great product, I would guess this was the main reason that RoadMaster decided to sell it also. It is an easy install. Never leave home without it.

You may want to look at the mud flap across the back that hangs from chains that are attached to the frame. It can be custom made to hang far enough off the ground 4-5" to not cause issues with throwing loose rocks at your tow vehicle. It will stop the rocks and if you happen to straddle a large obstacle in the road it will be able to swing up and over the item pushing it down against the ground so it does not hit your tow.
If you do not have 2 matching empty holes in the frame to hang the flap from you may need to drill the holes.
