Be a lot less work to mod a NT fender than fabricating a complete lining from scratch. Just a sabre saw, drill and screws.

Why not just use some thick conveyor belting, easy to fit compared to metal. It should easily stand up. Of course getting it is the hard part.

We used to have a pop-up with square wheel wells notorious for capturing blowout pieces. I was going to cut up a 55 gal. plastic barrel and make wheel well liners for it, but we sold it before I got to it. Don't know if you could use that in your application, but it would certainly be light weight.

I bought a TT that had blown a tire and did some damage to the pex tubing. I repaired the tubing and then reinforced the area above with 1/4" showerboard and then rubberized the side that wasn't laminated with rattle can undercoating spray. I used self tapping screws into the frame studs to hold in place. This repair matches the black tarp material and you can't tell that a blowout ever occurred (well, except for the minor fender damage).

I don't think most folks understand just how much damage that "flopping treat" can do. In our case, if it hadn't finally turned loose before we could pull over, it would have torn out the bottom of the frige.
All the damage was done in the very few seconds from blowout to pull off from 60 mph. If we hadn't had the TPMS and didn't know it had blown out, it would have torn the entire side off. This has happened twice.
I stumbled across your post and am intrigued with the idea. I had a blowout last October and the tread portion of the tire whipped around and did over $3700 damage. It mangled a lot. You say your rv dealer fabricated that? Did you do it for both sides? Mind me asking a ballpark figure on them doing that?
