What creative ideas have you done or seen to reduce stone chips from roadway?
I wanted to have covers made of material bed tarps are made of in brown and have snaps on them and install them when towing only, not leave on all the time. Something 2'x3' on each side. However my better half is far from sold on that idea. So hoping you all can throw me some ideasAttachment 97731
This is a issue with trailers as the TV tires kick up everything off the road right back and into the trailer, with this said you can a couple of things;
1) get a rock guard tow flap system that installs on the hitch or ball and had two heavy duty rubber flaps that will slow down some of the debris being thrown back.
2) have the front of the trailer sprayed with some kind of protectant, it could be like the motorhomes get, which is a heavy plastic type product, or have it sprayed with a rock guard product like a bed liner type product.
3) look online for the plastic rock guard looks like aluminum you would see on trucks ( can not remember the name of the look) but has the cross hash on it, you can get this product in sheets and glue it on the front of the coach like a lot of companies do.
Hope some of this helps and good luck and Happy Camping
