DIY Car Protection
« on: November 21, 2017, 09:42:08 AM »
I have a Master Tow dolly that I purchased with the RV (both used).  During our evacuation from Florida (Hurricane Irma) the from of our poor car with filthy and actually showed signs of damage from rocks and such.

Since I am a do it yourself type of person I built a rock guard for the tow dolly.  It is made of square steel tubing and covered with a white plastic wall covering offered at my local big box building material store.  I tested it out last week and it seems to work fine and much cheaper than the guards offered by Master Tow.

It's not a dumb question if you do not know the answer.
