Rock guards

What can I use for rock guards on my 74 Argosy 26? It has the curved windows on each side. Has anyone made them out of heavy vinyl or canvas that just snap in place while on the road?

The ones on my '72 Argy are similar to newer Airstream units. (80's and 90's I think). I had mine put on 2 years ago at the local dealer. Knowing what I know now, I'd do it myself and save 50%.

click my sig for Argy to see photos.

We put our ones on last year before we took him on his first trip.....

They were not cheap.....but when you try to find a replacement for the side curved glass...it's a good luck because they don't make them any more.

Custom Argosy solar guard

The PO of Our Gussy constructed a rock guard for the front window. A sheet of fiberglass is used for the "guard" part & the support frame is constructed from what appears to be PVC conduit pipe. The fiberglass is riveted to the frame.
