Check for hitting the trailer. I had a set on my previous Ram dually, but sold them because if the flaps were extended far enough to cover the outside dual, the ends of the bars would contact the front of the 5th wheel on really sharp turns. I figured a few stone chips were better than poking a big hole. Could you cover the front of the trailer with some vinyl stone guard film?

I have a 07 Tundra pulling the 2015 Flaggstaff Vlite 30wrliks. The front of the TT's V nose is almost on the hitch. TT will probable hit my truck before mud flap if i turn to sharp. Just thinking stones will do more damage being the nose of TT is so close. I need to check into some type of wrap for lower front of TT also.

Spend the money for the rock tamers. We did the Alaska trip. Don't worry too much about the windshield. No more risk that traveling in the US. If your flaps are not within 1" of the pavement, they may be protecting your pickup, but not your camper. Ours was sandblasted pretty good all across the front of the front storage bay. Nothing noticeable from a distance, but if you run your hand across the finish it felt like a scratchy pad.

Have made the trip to AK twice. Got back from the last one in July. ALL the roads in and out of AK are well paved unless they're doing road work, of course. Where you will find dirt/rock roads are from Dawson to (via Chicken) Toke; up and over the Taylor Highway (Top Of The World Highway)...awesome scenery...
and intermittently on the Cassiar Highway...roughly White horse to Prince George.
Other than that, yes mud flaps are great to have. I put them on my 2011 Ford F-350 Dually shortly before this last trip.
