My truck already has "splash guards".
They don't cover well enough.
Rocks and mud still get on the front of the trailer.
The factory mud flaps protect the truck itself, not what it is towing.

New to us

Just picked up our awning material from the shop that cut it down to fit our awning roller tube. It was a new Carefree 20'5" vinyl that we bought from Featherbedder (Thanks Bill). Since there was 9+ feet remaining material we had 5 sling back and 5 sling bottoms (matching the awning) 4 made up to order to fit our newly designed '60's wooden camp/deck chairs. We made the 4 based on the original 5th chair. It has the new vinyl now too! The 4 new designed chairs were made wider for more comfortable seating between the arms. All are made from white clear maple stock and will be polyurethane coat finished natural. Still need hardware to assemble the 4 new chairs. I am shopping around for that today! Ed

Moon I have a nice set of Duraflap mud flaps on the truck. While they help they are low enough to do a good reduction on stuff being thrown back. Easy way to see if your mud flap setup is effective is to take a tape measure to long stick/piec of PVC, stick it under the back edge of the tire, touch it to the bottom of your mudflap and then back to the trailer. Anything below this imaginary line is exposed to stuff being thrown by the tires. (You can also stand behind the truck and eyeball it but using the tape or stick method makes it easier to see where it hits.)

When I am at home it is a quick two bolts to remove the Rocktamers from the ProPride Stinger. I only do the removal because I have a hanger on the garage wall of the Rocktamers. Stinger goes on the floor. It it is a standard ball hitch I used to leave them on the hitch and put the assembly on the wall.

is there a market for a 1984 Sovereign, Interior is original and in good condition, the underbody is pretty rusted, not sure that it is moveable.

I see I mistyped my post above. First two sentences should read.

You can get longer flaps that hang lower/closer to the ground.

Rocktamer alternative might be the ones from Towtector.

I'm seriously considering a boat for the trailer to ride out the floods on. Wish we could send this rain to California......
Chris got an add via email yesterday from the MN Woodworkers Guild for an emergency ark building class!
