Mud Flaps

Camping World sells a kit for about $75. that goes all the way across my 2005 F250.
All you have to buy is a piece of angle. It bolts on just like the Enkay. Then you cut holes for safety chains and elec. cord.
Has worked well for my rig.

Alvinator,

Any luck installing the new rock guards (or "segment what-nots")?

Interested in what it takes - how difficult...

I have never had one on any of my Argosys but I have had them on Airstreams. I do plan on putting one on after I repaint it this fall.
Janet and Janet's Husband have kindly supplied me with the step-by-step directions for installing one on my Minuet.
I really do not want to bust out a window. That's for sure!

Thanks!

Mary, it looks like your question wasn't fully answered, at least as far as vintage Airstreams go. Our factory guard on our similar-aged coach has an aluminum frame, two slide rails, one on each side, and a piano hinge across the top. It partially obscures the emblem that reads "AIRSTREAM" over the front window, I am told that is how it was done way back when. It is riveted on the trailer and the frame for the guard. The guard itself is a green-colored corrugated fiberglass sheet, available at any home-improvement store. The aluminum frame may be a little harder to come by, unless you are good at working with soft metals. Here is a photo of ours:

We don't have any kind of guard on our '64 Overlander, and I wouldn't want to add anything that would obscure the view through the trailer. As several people said earlier in this forum it's nice to be able to see those cars who are following too closely. It also makes it easier when backing into a site. I'd really miss that view if the window was covered. We've driven well over 20,000 miles in the past year (including Alaska) and have not had a problem.

Xray asked about my rockguard dilemma. We decided that the $500+ for the new higher rockguards was too much so we opted for extra large mudflaps for our van.
