Recommended Tow Vehicle Protection For Tiffin Motorhome Pulling 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

Question:

My M/H is a Tiffin Allegro 33R.E.D. with a Demco Excalibar II bar towing a 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unltd. The Tiffin rock shield is terrible, so I am looking for a hula skirt-type rear deflector, to be paired with something along the lines of the Roadmaster Tow Defender. Can you help be ID and line up these items so they will fit my existing gear? Also looking for an exterior windshield cover to guard against rocks in the event they ever get past the Tow Defender.

For your Demco Excali-Bar II Non-Binding Tow Bar # DM9511009, I recommend the Rock Tamers Heavy-Duty, Adjustable Mud Flap System for 2" Hitches - Matte Black # ERT00108 or the Access Rockstar 3XL Custom Mud Flaps w/Heat Shield for Modified Suspensions - 47" W - Smooth Finish # A10200213 for even more coverage.

Then you can use the Roadmaster Tow Defender Protective Screening # RM-4750 which is compatible with the Demco base plates and tow bar.

For a windshield cover, I recommend the Hopkins Heavy-Duty ArcticGuard Snow and Ice Windshield Cover # HM17529. This will allow you to protect your windshield from the elements including helping as another protection barrier for rocks.

Question:

They all look like great products. I’d like your opinion of the Canadian built “Protect-a-Tow” in lieu of the Tow Defender as it looks like it might better protect the cables and other items mounted on or below the Demco tow bar. Have not quite made a final decision yet. Also, do you sell hood-mounted rock deflectors/windshiile protecors to fit the Jeep Wrangler Unltd?

For your 2009 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited we do have hood mounted bug and stone protectors. Your options are the Weather Tech Easy-On Stone and Bug Shield Deflector # WT50169 or the Putco Element Bug Shield Hood Protector for Jeep Wrangler - Clear # P570600.

We don't carry the Protect-a-tow, but it appears to be a good system. The biggest difference I see is the drilling into your motorhome and bumper for the eye bolts to connected. The fact that it is so close to your motorhome exhaust is the only other issue I see from forums.

Riding beneath your tow bar is nice, but your tow bar will be able to handle the road debris.
