toad protectors

Hello everyone
I want to protect as much as possible my Jeep wrangler behind my 33aa when towing. I have looked at the protect a tow product and I like it but am wondering about a mud/rock flap hung under the rear of the mh. I have seen many mh with the flaps so they must provide some protection. Does Tiffin sell the flaps? Any feedback is appreciated. Thanks

One note there is one out there saying there Jeep is throwing rocks forward hitting MH and bouncing back on Toad. They added flaps on front of Jeep

I have the Blue Ox Protective Shield of the flex cloth and NO chips. Make sure you call Blue Ox and tell them which tow bar you have to assure the length is a match.

Look for surguard - big rubber flap that replaces the little tiffin flap. I've never had anything fly up and hit my Liberty. Dave

......depending on type/length/width, IMHO, rear mud flaps on MHs can actually increase the amount of sand/small chips that get kicked up. I like the fabric screens that are suspended horizontal between MH and towed. After looking at several brands I built a DIY model that works very well for a fraction of the cost.

thanks Rodney and thanks old scout for your input. I am going to go with the fabric style protector instead of the rear flap.

We've been using the horizontal fabric protector from Blue Ox for a year now and are full timers. Our Jeep Wrangler has thrown rocks back to the MH where we've had to touch them up with the touch up paint so we are planning to purchase one of the Road Master Guardian shields. Our jeep's tires are a bit extreme compared to most though so that's a factor also. If you go with the fabric option ours has held up very well and is easy to use.

That is RoadMaster's "Alaska" package. CR-V I bought came with it. Don't use any of it and have sold one piece already. The lower fascia on the CR-V is black plastic so no paint to chip.

Use the Protect-a-Tow and it works great. If the flap does throw up any rocks, the PaT deflects them back down underneath the toad. Also protects your tow bar & cables.
