Flaps, Bras or Covers

I have a 24' class c and pull a toad. What is the best form of protection for the toad? Individual mud flaps, mud flap bar, front end hood bra or some other form of covering? My buddies both have class A diesels and say their toads get filthy with their rear flap devices on their units?

If you have side exhaust I highly recommend the Protect-a-Tow mesh shield between the MH and toad. I think it provides the most complete protection you can buy, and at a very reasonable price!

Front bras have a tendency to lodge dust underneath which rubs on the paint.

Rear flaps have been known to kick up rocks on the toad.

We only used the stiff mud flaps behind the tires and got no toad damage... even for the drive to Alaska. We saw others in Alaska actually removing the big across-the-RV flap & they pointed out a layer of rocks at the base of their toad's windshield, along with scratches. We had absolutely no damage on the toad or motorhome - in 8 yr. of using it during full-timing. We traveled many gravel roads because we love boondocking.

Since your RV is small it might be manageable to put on an all-over cover - they can be unruly on a big RV. However, they can still rub during winds on the paint job.

I'd go with the tire mud flaps and good waxings.

This toad has a protective paint that can be pealed off when no longer required to protect t the original finish.
