Smile RV Protection

Hello All,
I have a 2010 Rockwood 8319SS. On a trip to Western PA, I had extensive rock damage to the front cap of the TT. Does anyone know of an aftermarket product I can install to prevent this from happening again? A rock shield is definitely needed on this vehicle for protection. Thanks.

sbraxton, I think you will get better response to this in a different forum

We've been to Mount Desert Island 3 times in the last 4 years. We have stayed at the KOA in the Woodlands side. We preferred to be in the woods to being in the open on the water. The first time we went we were there for one week. When we were packing up we decided to come back and spend 2 weeks since there is so much to do. The Island Explorer shuttle buses are great. The dog could go on them anywhere we went. If you have a pet many places are pet friendly. There is a shop in Bar Harbor called Bark Harbor, they have a list of restaurants that are setup to bring your pet.

Sadly the CAT is no more

When we have gone we stay at Blackwoods, it is dry camping. It is a little work, but we have a portable waste tank (42 gallon) so we don't have to move the camper. Water is pretty close and we have a 6 gallon wheeled tank that our teens take care of. The sites for large trailer(over 24 feet) or RV's are grouped together so running your generator is not bad because everyone else is too. The Ranger run programs at night at the Amphitheater which are great. LL Bean(Island Explorer) buses run right into campground every 30 minutes. You have to go into Bar Harbor for groceries as the little store in Otter Creek closed. Bath house is privately owned and just outside the campground, it can get expensive to use for a family. The other place we like is in Southwest Harbor it's called SMUGGLER'S DEN CAMPGROUNDS(877-244-9033). They do have a website. They have all hook up plus an in ground heated swimming pool. They also have Bean's buses stop in the campgrounds and will take you into Bar Harbor. They are right next to Echo Lake which is a really nice fresh water lake to swim. They do have sand beach and bath houses. If I remember there is a path that you can walk to the lake. The salt water beaches can still be really cold and water can get a bit rough for younger kids. There is a super market right down the road from the campground (I think it's and IGA). You will not be disapointed with this trip no matter where you stay. There is so much to see and do. We love the hiking trails and kayaking!!!
