Only when "Fado's" in his crate INSIDE the Burb and not on the roof.

It would keep the airflow over the top intact and reduce turbulence between the TV and 'Stream.

Looks like a great deflector to me, Bob. Gonna polish it?

With the tailgate up, the vacuum behind the Suburban will increase and no hitch is necessary. That gets rid of all that extra weight. The trailer will "draft" behind the tow vehicle.

The exhaust gasses will be sucked into the Suburban and calm Fado and other occupants, ensuring a quiet and peaceful vacation.
