I'm on my second Airstream, and chips and dings from road gravel seem to be inevitable, to some degree. My present trailer came with the stainless rock guards, and I use a hitch mounted guard (Rock Solid) on the truck.

Since I often drive on gravel roads to get to NFS campgrounds (last 5 miles of most trips), I bought a roll of bubble wrap and just tape it over the areas on the front of the trailer that are still exposed. The tape doesn't seem to hurt the finish (I take it off between trips), and it protects against the rocks that seem to get through no matter what kind of guards or flaps I use.

I remeber helping my father attach styrafoam to the front and road side windows prior to his trip to Alaska. When we removed the foam from the road side windows, we found quite a few rocks imbedded in the material.

Go with the 'Rock Tamers' Hands down! I have both. I purchased the 'Roadwing' from and received it from UPS. I then went to the Forums and found a thread regarding rock protection. Everyone likes the Rock Tamer. So, I bought one and I love it, too. Bottom line: Rock Tamer is adjustable. Road wing requires you to cut the mudflap to size! What a @#$%ing joke! You would be really limited by this system if you want to tow with a vehicle other than the one you fit it for initially. Also, I tried to return the Roadwing to and the return request function of their website is disabled and I left messages on 5 different voice mail boxes! To no avail. I think Roadmaster owns Hitchfinder and they were no better at helping me get service from their 'distributor.' If you want to return something to, good luck! I won't, buy from them again. Go to and you can get the 'Rock Tamers' for $199.00.
