I added them to my MAC 208. Not really for the water on the bottom of the camper, but more the road grime that covered the rear stabilizers after a few trips. This helped a lot in keeping that off of them.

I purchased the mud flaps on Amazon, cut them to the right height, and then bolted them to the frame. What you can see here is the ends of the three bolts with ny-lok nuts on them (stainless hardware). Between the frame Channel section is a piece of pressure treated wood to use as blocking and the mud flap.

You can see a photo here at my blog:

The Schaffer's RV Trip Log: Finally! Spring is here!

Otherwise, the photo is huge on this site for some reason.

I like it Schaffer. Why the wood blocking? There should have been a metal cross beam that you could screw to. I plan on using an aluminum strip on the flap so that the screws do not pull thru or maybe just large washers.

I like your size mud flap also. I think I will check amazon.

There is a metal cross beam, but it is shaped like a "C" with the solid side towards the wheel. I used the blocking to fill that in so when I fastened the bolts it let the mud flap tighten securely without dimpling it or bending it into the "C".

Here are the mud flaps I used from Amazon. Check the width to see what ones fit where your frame space is.

Yes. Your right. That cross beam is the same on mine as well. I was going to take off the wheel and screw it to the flat side. Now I understand what you did. thanks.

lol. This is what I found and added to my cart.
