Basecamp - Protecting windows when traveling

Hello - We have a new Basecamp and are planning a long trip from FL to Michigan. Curious if we should be concerned about covering the big window in front - or protecting from rocks flying up? We are pulling w/a Jeep Wrangler.

Thx! Denise

Welcome to the forum! You might find a better audience in the Base Camp forum IMO:

http://www.airforums.com/forums/f404/

There have been a number of posts in various Basecamp threads about front window damage:

There is NO hazard protection on those front windows as on other models

The service staff at my dealer is the best, they were dealt a bad hand with this model. Good luck to my fellow Basecampers.

Just noticed your new thread in the Basecamp forum:

Hopefully folks in that forum will receive emails about your post.

Good luck,
