Definately Protect-a-Tow it has worked best for us and the price is very reasonable too! Protect-a-Tow website

I have mud flaps behind the duals and a solid type rock guard behind them which seems to work great. I've never had damage to my Jeep Liberty toad and unless we're in rain, it always comes out 'clean' after towing.

I got plans for a rock guard I made for my Jeep Wrangler. If that is you tow rig let me know and I can send it to you.
I cut off 3 inches of my solid flap as it threw up rocks. I can't prove it but think it is better. I also cut our the middle third out of it to allow more air to move under my rig. I don't think I get nearly as much coating on my Jeep. Don't know if that was the answer or installing a longer sober tube. Now I don't use my rock guard if driving main roads.

I'll add another vote for the Protect-A-Tow. It helps keep the back of the motorhome clean too, plus protecting the tow bar and cables from road debris.

Hi John!

Tiffin's guard (with the chrome letters and everything!) is around $200. depending on where you buy.

The solid, one piece heavy ones seen on diesels pushers work well - and you really need the flaps behind your rear wheel AND the rock guard mudflap - but there are times when the rear of the motorhome can "sit down" on a flap and crush it. I'd go for the Ultra Rock Guard because I think it would do better in such situations AND you can get one anywhere without having to order your model-specific one.

Mud flaps came on our MH and we didn't add a rock guard but did put a "LaBra" on the front of our Ford Edge toad. We haven't had any problem (knock on wood) during the towing.

We use and are very happy with the Protect-a-Tow (protectatow.com)in addition to the rubber guard on the back bumper of the MH.

I have this one: http://www.pplmotorhomes.com/parts/rv-tow-bars-dollies/rock-solid-splash-guards.htm

But I do not tow a toad yet, so no idea how well (or not) it works.

Will likely add a protect-a-tow if it doesn't do much. I have mud flaps also.
