Protection for basement front?

I am a proud owner of a 2014 Cedar Creek 32RL 5th wheel. Love the rig!! I plan to take this to Alaska next summer. I am worried about the gravel roads and the damage flying gravel can do to the front of the basement. Any ideas on how I can protect this area will be greatly appreciated.

The only thing that can kick rocks up are your rear tires. either add a rubber stopper like on MH to your bumper or the cheap way mud flaps for each tire. Have never seen anything else.

I have toyed with idea but not seen the use to justify the cost. I agree mudflaps should protect and be a lot cheaper.

Oh, I like this! We recently did a two month trip from the east coast to the west coast and back again. Great trip but my Fver now has tar and whatever else we picked up along the way. Taking forever to get it all off. Since the Fver and truck are new we never got around to putting mud flaps on the truck. Big mistake. We knew better; had them on our last TV. These look like a real winner. Won't have to take the truck in to flaps installed. Thanks.
