Need Advice on Rear Mud/Splash "Protector"

Have a 2018 Sunseeker 2420MS, 25' Motor Home.

Looking for recommendations for a REAR mud/splash guard thing - tired of the entire back of motor home looking trashed (w/dirt & mud!) 20 mins into wherever we're going, as well as our TOAD (Smart Car on a trailer) also getting trashed/pelted with mud, dirt & etc.

Was thinking of one of those "brush" things (less weight), IF they actually work, or if anyone has the rubber kind & recommends those...

Appreciate any recommendations. THX!

I use the type you see,on the trailers,of UPS tractor trailers. Keeps the vehicle on the trailer pretty clean other then side spray from passing vehicles.

Not sure where you’re driving that your rig looking trashed 20 minutes into your travels. What kind of roads are you on? I’ve seen lots of RVs without mud/splash guards and they look fine.

Then in my situation.....I have the solid rubber side to side rubber guard at the rear of my motorhome to help protect my toad from road debris. Some prefer them, others not. It’s a personal choice. I chose the solid rubber versus the “brush “ type you mention. Many more transport trailers have solid than the “brush” design seen on UPS vehicles. Once again, your choice.

We drive on highways in the Pacific Northwest, where it rains a lot. I may have exaggerated a bit with my "20 minutes" but it DID look pretty bad when we stopped to pick up something, 45 mins from home.

The back of the mh will still get dirty because of the way air flows into the space... Way back when, I had a van with a reverse wing sort of deal which directed air flow down the back to cut down on the swirl action.

The UPS "brooms" on the sides of the trailer are a real public service. Pass a UPS truck in a rain/snow storm and it's good visibility all the way. Pass a regular semi-trailer and you're going by instinct, not vision, because you are blinded by the spray. Every semi-trailer should have them.

Don't get me started on dually dump trucks with no mud flaps. That rant is for another day.

We use the solid mud flaps on our truck. Still get a little splash but, it helps a lot. Don't think you are exaggerating on the 20 min. thing. We live on a dirt road and when it is raining - or sometimes not - it takes only the 5 minute drive to the paved road to get things really messed up. At 20 minutes, we would need a shovel to get the road off. (yes, I mean "road" - dirt is too kind!) Power washers are our friend!
