Rock protection

We have ordered a 2015 34rl Cedar Creek and will pick it up in mid Oct.
My question is do you use a system to protect the fifth wheel against rocks hitting the front of the rig? Since the front is not painted do we need to worry about this? Our previous fifth wheel was full body paint and had chip spots from stuff hitting it. Thanks for your help. Mike and Gwen

I have seen mud flaps, rock tamers, and several different variations....I was going to put flaps on my dually.......I was thinking about doing what a friend has done and install some diamond plate on the front of 5th...like they do toy haulers...still undecided....

I looked a few days ago at rock tamers:

both realtruck.com and autoanything.com has rock tamers for $249.00

just for info:

a sheet of 4x8 1/16" thick highly polished was $110 or 4X8 1/8" diamond plate highly polished aluminum was $191.....so after shipping, my time/labor(for cutting and mounting)....

I am leaning hard towards the rock tamers myself....

Nice thing about the Rock tamers is they will fit on just about any rig with a 2 inch receiver hitch.

Easy to move around and no need to rebuy with each new trailer.
