niftypkg,
The aluminum rock guard was on the trailer when I bought it. It doesn't have a manufacturers name on it so I guess someone had it fabricated. It uses a 1/8" thick L shaped aluminum bracket and then a piano hinge is riveted in place on the underside of the bracket and on the underside of the 1/8" frame of the guard. They then riveted an alum. sheet over the frame.

The L frame bracket was 48" long but the piano hinge was shorter. Shot of frame underneath.

The same pins that secure the guard closed for travel are the same one used to keep the alum. rods in position when it is open. A solid rod fits inside another aluminum rod then holes are drilled crosswise for the open position.

Exclamation Antenna & [Rock guard]

Must have been an aircraft worker that did that job. Havn't seen any Al. hinges around. It is very clever and will last forever. I had thought of making one myself 'cept it would look like an F 105 and may even fly. I once worked at Republic Aviation. Thanks for the pix, now I have some ideas of proceeding, when if!!

That would be interesting, a swept wing design that replaces the awnings and could add lift to the trailer. Hmmmm, we would have to add flaps to control it.
