Yep....works great. The mesh screen sits right on top. If the tow bar, which connects under the front bumper of the Jeep. There are two bolts on the tow bar that hold the yokes on that connect to the base plate pins. To install the Kar Gard, you replace those two bolts with two provided that have an upper pin that ties into the mesh screen at the bumper. The end at the coach has a square yoke that goes around the male end of the tow bar and tightens there with two bolts. Once the tow bar is attached and all your chains and cables hooked up, just unroll the mesh guard and pull it over the pins at the bumper, then put the locking clips on the posts to hold it in place. There are two arms that automatically fold to match the back of the coach when turning. Anything thrown up by the coach is going to hit the bottom of the mesh screen and be kept down.

Do the mud flaps work?

Anyone here use the mudflap on the Berk without anything additional ?

Does it do the job, or should one also have something like the Kar guard ?

Kenny,

From my research (which includes the video segment on gone with the Wynns), mudflats alone do not provide protection. The complete bullet-proof solution is to get the Alaska Pack from Roadmaster. It includes both the tow defender (screen) and Guardian (rock guard for grill & windshield).

Some opt to use only the tow defender, so you have options out there

No issues with the exhaust system? I am still debating. We have towed our Wrangler now a little over 10,000 miles with no issues but maybe just lucky so far. We are using no guard at all.
