Front windshield protection

Does anyone have a Rockwood or other make with the front windshield on there travel trailer. Has anyone covered it up with a snap-on cover to protect it from rocks while travelling. If so do you have any pics what it looks like,our last trailer got a crack in the windshield and would like to protect this one from happening again

A lot of older trailer models that had windows in the front also had a hinged cover that lowered to keep rocks from breaking it.

My old Terry had an aluminum frame with a "fiberglass" sheet in it. Pianno hinge across the top and telescoping struts with wing nuts to secure them at different lengths. When down the struts had spring loaded pull pins that locked into holes in the shield's frame so wind didn't force the shield up at highway speeds.

Looked like this: (although not my old TT)

A lot of people on the Lance forum use Autoweave custom covers, they are expensive.

I installed clear protective film on the outside of our windshield -

I wonder if you could have it vinyl wrapped like they do on commercial vehicles. Lost of design options that way. Might have to look into this. Maybe I could get something to darken the window since the inside shade is useless.
