We leave the 27th of Aug. on our first trip with our brand new 2010 29rk Cruiser. We will be going over about50 miles of gravel road, slowly. Was thinking about one of those rock guards to go on the back of the truck to try to stop rocks from chipping the front of the trailer. We had an oldTT that was beat up pretty bad, we didn't know if 5ers would get as much rock damage as a TT would. WhatI would like to know is, are they necessary or not necessary and what kind is best, preferably one easy to put on and remove.

All of the mud I get is on the outer sides of the front storage door. I assume rocks would hit the same areas. I put on large mud flaps on the truck which really helped the mud issue. I would think they will help for rocks if you go slow.

Look into one of these, A buddy hasone and it seems to do a really good job. He will not pull his 5ver or boat without it.

I have a set of RoadWings that work well. Some splatter does get on the trailer but most of it is kept off. I picked up some road paint and it got splattered on the rear fender and the RoadWings.but there wasn't any on our 5vr. by: Hamops

I must agree with all above. I installed the hard plastic mud flaps

after pulling the camper home the first night and put a rock into the

storage door. OUCH!!!!! but since then I have not had a problem. So

I think they work OK too.
