mud flaps

your mud flaps do look good, i have diamond plate ones on my ford dooley, something i notice, your flaps come awful close to the ground, if you ever back into a parking spot with just your truck, i am afraid you will pull your flaps off. with some one to help you , slowly back into a parking spot and make sure the curb or stop doesnt touch your flaps, if the flap doesnt clear it, your back tires will pull your flaps off.

Beautiful front cap!! We had no problems with the cap on our 2014 Keystone 321RES so you should be fine. We also have the large rear window but I found out that 95% of the time when I look out the rear window I'm LOOKING AT THE TRAILER BEHIND US!!
Presently we are serious about the new Rockwood Signature 8310SS. Next week at the Novi, Michigan Show we will make a final decision.
Happy trails,

One of my concerns is this new front cap. Our old trailer had the diamond plate bottom edge and it took several rock hits while traveling. I asked about this and the salesman indicated that this is not a problem for the caps (not sure how he came to that conclusion)

So today I installed some duraflaps on my truck. They look pretty good and I hope will help with the problem.

I just purchased a 2905ss. I was expecting the diamond plate also but got this front cap instead. So I email FR directly and got some info on it. It's a TPO cap (thermoplastic olefin) essentially rubber with either fiberglass or carbon fiber imbedded inside. It's the same material that is used now a days on auto bumpers, front detailing, etc.

I contacted Forest River as well hoping that we would be getting the front cap. Apparently all Ultra Lite's manufactured starting in December 2014 will have the cap.

Indymule, I have the same cap with a few thousand miles sans mudflaps. I do have a few rock chips, but the color is intact and looks good. I was actually thinking of taping off and spraying some type of Rhinoliner when it gets too bad.....

Interesting, But auto bumpers dont take the abuse that front of these campers do.

Smart move with the mud flaps. Even if you don't throw rocks, the flaps will keep a lot of road grime off the cap.
