Good ideas for use on flat windows but other than the newer wrap around shields, what other options could be use to protect the front windows on an Argosy?

Spend the bucks

About the only thing for full pano windows - I did my own -- a bit easier than Gary's project since I didn't have to do the cut-down for the narrower Minuet body. There are still a few pointers I would add. Guess I should post there again ... some day.

It has been my practice to tow without a rockguard leaving the shades up in the front and rear and having a straight shot, though limited, view threw my rearview mirror. Being in the process of replacing my wing windows I don't want to go through that again, so I am breaking down and installing a rock guard. I have a vintage rock guard and replacing the broken opaque white plastic with clear 1/16" Lexan. 1/16" is very close to the thickness of the original. Tinted Lexan was not in stock in my area and although I could order it with the tinting and shipping charges would cost me 3x the cost of clear. As I want the rock shield as a rock shield the tint is not an issue and hopefully will still let me use my rear view mirror view through the trailer. I had to buy a full sheet of Lexan. Cost about $55. With the extra I will cut out the centers of my roof vents and make skylights and cut out a piece to cover my window next to my entry door to stick decals to. I'm thinking about one of those monitors though.
