Protection for TOAD

Getting ready to fix our Honda CRV for towing behind the Legacy. Going with Blue Ox baseplate and tow bar and Air Force One brake system. What mud flap are folks putting across the back of the coach? Any other items I should look at?

Thanks!

Doesn't the Legacy come with one from the factory (I know the Berk does).


If you want some over the top protection, take a look at the Roadmaster "Alaska Pack" setup. This is what we will get for our TOAD

Legacy doesn't come with a mud flap and I think they run about $900. Plus the exhaust is out the rear so amid flap has to be fitted around it. I have the Blue Ox and bought the KarGard II. Got it at Amazon for around $400. I think it's actually by Roadmaster but it interfaces perfectly. Rolls up to store against the back of the RV above the tow bar. About 5,000 towing miles so far with no damage.

Thanks. I have also been looking at the Kar Guard II. Any issues with the rear exhaust pipe?

No problems at all with the exhaust. First install will take about ten minutes and you'll need a small bottle of LocTite (just a couple of drops) to install the pins on your tow bar. Also, the mesh part is replaceable if you ever need to.

I double checked the price; paid $373 with free Prime shipping. That was last May. Keep it in the garage when not traveling just because the UV is so bad here in Florida. Also, I was mistaken; it is by Blue Ox.

Conceptumator, can you give me details on your mud flap and where you got it? Thanks.

Sorry if I was confusing; I don't have a mud flap, just saw on the forum where several people with different models had bought them and what they paid for them.
