I could not justify to my wife the 1500$ US for a factory rockguard for our 1974 argosy....that would be more than we payed for the trailer! But i still had to find a solution as i didnt like the soft window protector that came with my trailer.
So, this weekend, i went and got a sheet of lexan 3/16 4X8 and with a few screw, washer and a aluminum cylinder that i cut into small peices....i found a way to make my own rockguard!
-i wanted it clear as i love been able to see inside the trailer and through the rear window when driving....it gives me a good view of the traffic behind me when driving.
-it is very strong...i could through a baseball right on it and the window would never be touch....
-monday, i should have time to finish the center peice....on hinges so it can be lifted to open the window!
-took a good 6h to make....figuring out a system and the shape of those window was the most complicated. next time...it would take perhaps half the time to make a set
should be interesting to see how it age in the sun. the lexan as a UV protection so hopefully it last a few years!
