Rock guard

I have a 2015 Precept 31 UL. Any suggestions on what kind of rock guard I should get I am pulling a Fait 500 C worried I’ll chip it up.

Wouldn’t waste the money. Over 15 years of dolly and flat towing and never got a chip on any vehicle.

Going into unpacked campgrounds just slow down.

With that said all the experts will chime in on why I am wrong.

Thanks. My rear wheels are far enough away from the car I was thinking I would be ok. With that said the Fiat sits really low. Thanks again

We installed this heavy rubber Ultraguard rock guard on our 2018 Precept 35S from CW.

This also kept our toad much cleaner when traveling in wet or rainy conditions,

I will. We have a Precept 35s and flat towed our '14 CRV for 4 years. The 35s has a much longer rear overhang than the 31 UL so the chances of debris getting to the toad are considerably less. In summers a lot of road departments are out chip sealing, we encountered this and suffered enough paint chips on the front and hood of the car it diminished the trade in value by $1000.

We went with the Roadmaster Tow Defender. Our first cross country trip; 5500 miles AZ <-> FL keys without a chip.
