Try DuraFlap, Several New England Unit members had them make flaps with an Airstream embossed on them. They can show you what we had made and will custom make any image. Pricey but worth it.

slight change of topic

OK, so the hope of finding someone that already makes Airstream monogrammed mudflaps is now a bit gone...not paying $$$ for custom.

That being said, what is a GOOD mudflap to protect the AS? I don't really want the big ones that hang from the bumper or are a hitch add-on. I'd like something that is directly screwed to the fender behind the wheel. We have an Excursion, so there is the option of factory / custom molded, but to me this doesn't seem to be enough to protect the AS. Anyone found good, long, wide, fender-mount flaps that they are happy with?

Iv'e tried a number, both factory and aftermarket on two different Burbs.

None worked very well on the back-roads we frequent in the Adirondacks.
Broke down last year and got the Tow-tector brush guard, works for us.

4x4 shop might have something you could adapt...

If you have the Enkay mud flaps - they come with a thick rubber area where the Enkay logo is attached with screws. Ita a laser etched piece of aluminum or SS. You can have a plate etched locally - and not all that expensive. I had a screen door guard special made for well under $100 and I'm sure the mud flap logos would be less. I told the guy no rush and he used scrap metal pieces from an old job to do it - saved money there.

Got me thinking about my mud flaps - right now I have reflective tape there.

If you want a really good mudflap, check out the Duraflap ones. There've been a lot of discussions about them here in the past which I'm sure you can find by doing a search. As already mentioned, they can put the Airstream logo on the flaps as well, which although somewhat pricey, I'm sure would be as classy as you would find anywhere. Your post sounds like your looking for cheap, however, and in that case I'm not sure what you'll find.

The Enkay flaps are quite good too, as already mentioned, but the newer style, while lighter in weight, are nowhere as good as what they were selling 3-4 years ago -- I've owned both styles. If you are able to find someone who has a used set of Ekays from 3-4 years ago (perhaps from someone on this forum?) that would be the best flap for you IMO, but they do need to attach to a hitch bar, and are heavy.
