protective film cover

Last year we made the Alaska Highway drive in our last trailer. The front of our 5th wheel took a beating due to gravel roads, mud, etc. I saw a caravan of trailers in one campground and many of them had a clear plastic film taped to the front of their trailers. I asked one of the guys about it and he said the people who were guilding them up the highway provided it and that the material was made for this job. I was never able to find the person who provided this clear covering material. It was just a clear plastic that they taped to the front of their units. I was wondering if anybody on the board can tell me what the material was and where I can get it. I am thinking its the same stuff they wrap new cars in, but I am not sure. We are planning a trip to North Dakota and I understand the roads have a lot of debris due to all the oil drilling activity. I do not want to mark up my new Columbus 5th wheel.
Thanks

It might be road wrap. I bought some and will be giving it a try. Check out Camping World, they have pretty good prices.

They mainly talk about bug protection but it may help with other debris since it is a 20 mil product.

BTW, you can find it in the paint section. Comes off easy too. We used it on front of the toad too.
