Just installed. Installation video was much better than the Roadmaster directions. Seems like it should greatly reduce debris on the front of my towed vehicle. Had to drill new holes in the rear arm per the instructions due to the wider spacing on my F150 tow brackets.


Comments
Doing great a year later. This deflector really has helped keep the road grime off the front of my F150 I tow. Definitely a must have to protect your tow.

I purchased the Defender to protect our new Equinox during our trip to Alaska. I wasn't sure how it would hold up to all the gravel roads and construction typical of Alaska roads. I was extremely satisfied with its performance and ease of how quickly it attaches to the toad. We now use it everytime we tow. I did have to modify the ladder on the motorhome because the lower loop rung hung below the level plane of the defender. It was an easy modification and worth the tradeoff for the Tow Defender.


Comments
Good as new! The durability is exceptional. We never tow without it.

Product arrived quickly. It was well constructed. Watched the etrailer video and read through the instructions and started to install. The 2 3/8 by 1" bolts and nuts were missing otherwise I would have given it a 5 rating. Luckily I only live 1 mile from the hardware store so I went ahead and got 4 because they were only 35 cents each. Rest of installation went great and test drive was good looks like it should do the job. Ready for the trip and will follow up on performance.


Comments
Works Perfect. One 1200 mile round trip from SC to Florida and Two 2000 mile round trips to Michigan. No noticeable chips on the Wrangler. Easy to roll up and unroll for use.

I have not installed the Tow Defender because it would not fit my 2018 Jeep Grand Cherokee as advertised. Buried in the fine print is the requirement to buy an extension for my RV to keep the cloth from being too long, but also to measure and drill new holes in the toad mounting bar to match the lugs on my Blue Ox equipment. I would love to return it as it was never used, but Roadmaster won't take it back.

Installed it on our 2019 Chevy Equinox on the back of our 2004 Itasca Meridian and everything fit as it should, easy to assemble, I will need to install an 8 inch extension to my receiver hitch to provide clearance for the exhaust pipe, looks good confident it will keep debris off of our new car. Thank you for the great service and great products.


Comments
In the year since I purchased the defender we have traveled over 13000 miles from snow in the north to sand in the south west heavy rain in the mid west and our 2019 Chevy equinox shows no signs of damage. I do have some slight damage to the edge of the defender from the exhaust of the motor home but it doesnt cause any problem, it still rolls up when not in use. Very good product, I would not tow without it.

Overall I am very pleased with Andy and very pleased with packaging , not quite as pleased with the delay of shipping (I understand the delay wasn't caused at your location) therefore I gave your company a four star rating



- RM-4750
by:

The product works well and is constructed well. I gave it 4 stars because it mentions about being to close to the exhaust and causing damage to the fabric but doesn't talk about other possible concerns. I have a Tiffin 2018 Allegro Red motorhome. My ladder on the back of my motorhome interfered with proper operation of this part. My solution ending up being to cut off the lower section of my ladder. I have attached pictures so hopefully someone can see this as an issue before purchasing.

We have towed our 2017 Jeep Grand Cherokee over 15K miles behind our Class A motorhome in the past year. I'm happy to say that the tow defender did it's job well. Can't find a single rock chip on the jeep.


Comments
Im still very happy with the Tow Defender. Still no rock chips on my toad or the rear of our Class A. I am super pleased with this product.

I love this. It was easy to install and based on how dirty it gets, it seems to reduce the road dirt/rocks that could be hitting the front of my toad. I have used it to protect my tow vehicle on thousands of miles of towing and I don’t have one rock chip. It rolls up quickly and stores nice with the included straps.

Actually I haven’t pulled with it yet , but have set it up backwards since our rig is in a park and couldn’t pull it out. I’ll make final adjustments when we head out in a week. Overall I’m happy with everything every bit of protection helps

I wrongly ordered the RM-4700 model and had to exchange it for the RM-4750. Michelle at etrailer was excellent in providing a return authorization and reorder of the correct RM-4750 model. I received a full refund minus only $21.00 for return shipping which is certainly more than reasonable since this was my mistake. New product arrived promptly, but I was missing two 3/8"x1" bolts that were supposed to be included. Obviously, this was a mistake on the manufacturer's part not etrailer. Fortunately, I have a good selection of bolts and hardware and I had the exact type of bolts needed. Product has been installed and seems to be working as promised.

Robert S helped me order what I needed. He even made a call to the manufacturer to make sure their part would work with my base plates. This is truly going above and beyond. Excellent customer service. I felt confident with the order.

I placed a big order with etrailer to flat tow my Jeep. The Roadmaster tow bar was back ordered but was in transit. etrailer notified me of the possible delay and monitored the parts and was able to ship my complete order within my deadline. I always buy from etrailer due to the great service, follow up support and installation videos and instructions and they keep me informed. Thanks

The product is sturdy and easy to deploy. Excellent directions to install. And after utilizing a couple of times and getting comfortable with the process it's even easier to deploy and roll-up.

Received the road master rock shield and tow bar cover .. everything looks good and will make the install next week sometime..I want to thank everyone at etrailer for all of the help making my decision what product to buy .. thanks again.

This product does a good job of protecting our tow vehicle. It keeps road sluge from damaging paint and windshield. The best part is that it stays on the motorhome when not in use. It can be hooked up for towing by one person. Just what we need to protect our new truck.

Good product. Use with a Blue Ox towing hitch for RV dingy vehicle. Protects the front of the towed vehicle. Easy to hookup and retract when not in use.
