Just wondering if anyone has experience with a product like EcoFlaps that reduce drag and spray yet stop rocks from hitting the AS?

Link to their site:

That is interesting - how long have you used it and how much use does it get? Kinda seems like with turns it would stretch it damage it etc?

It connects with a bungee cord to points in my case on the coach and tow. The same would apply to a TV and trailer. There is a PVC device that also connects the open sides and runs across the tow bar or hitch. This prevents it from dragging during turns. I use it every time I hook up. Here are some pictures that show how it set up. gallery

Its a simple design that works and folds up in a small bag when not in use.

Does it block a path from TV tires totally? Looks like it does but had to tell

How long have you owned? Do you have shots of it on your setup?

I had thought about using these on the RT hardware....but how would one cut to a custom length and have any durability of the material. I think there would be problems with breaking and fraying for the material if cut.

I can only speak for the Motor Home version. since the wider section is connected to the Motor Home is does block path for MH tires. In looking at the gallery pictures the Trailer version has the wider section connected to the trailer and the narrow section across the length of of the rear of the TV. That would make sense due to the trailer being wider than the TV. My question would be although it would be a simple step to install the requited eye bolts to an SOB where would you install the eye bolts to the Airstream front banana wrap. On my little car that I tow with the MH I installed a heavy duty type molly bolt arrangement that has a 1/4 threaded opening in the front underside of the car on each side. I can then attach the 1/4 eye bolt when towing and remove when not. That way it is not visible. I know that is hard to picture by my explanation..

Also my freshly repainted tongue and hitch got gravel blasted.

Take a look at the DuraFlap site for the Black Friday weekend. A different sale every day.
They sell the mud flaps that fit the fender well of the truck. They are wide and long enough to fully protect your trailer, and they have the added protection for your truck fenders.

Anyone know if a clamp on Rock Tamer will work?
The Rock Tamers attach to the hitch shank and not the receiver. In other words, If you pull the hitch off, the Rock Tamers come with it.
