Front Caps on Travel Trailers

Wife and I just purchased a new Rockwood 2604WS.

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.

Looking good Congrats on the new unit! You got some nice size mudflaps for sure and that should help!
I kinda like the diamond plate myself.
Guy at the cg has something like this. Not necessarily this brand. I have thought about them myself but dont know how they will work with the WDH.

That is a beautiful setup. They look like a natural couple.

We have a plain front cap but it's all white. I actually prefer it that way and don't care for the diamond plate at all. I've noticed it does get a chip here and there but the flaps take care of most of the stuff that would hit it.

Automotive paint protection film! Clear, practically undetectable when installed and will protect from road rash - believe me, the paint on the caps gets chipped EASILY! In just the tow home from the dealer, I had a half dozen chips to touch up before having the film applied and I was towing with a TV with flaps!

I think I would go with both, the flaps and the chip free clear coat THe flaps will cut the big stuff down but the chip free will keep most of the small ones down. Also get some touch up from FR, If they will sell it...Looks nice ... PS: that looks like a big awning get a hold of OC before he sells out, he is only making 10 pair.

My husband & I like the look of your front cap. We're hoping that ours may be the same. Looks like an upgrade with the LED lights. We didn't have the diamond plate on our old trailer & never had any damage either. Post more pictures. We are getting anxious for ours. When did you place your order?
