I will be traveling to Namibia next week with my SUV and a Jurgens XT140 Camp Trailer
I have heard that it is necessary to have Mud Flaps on your car when touring Namibia
Apparently, the rocks shoot up, against the trailer and hit out your rear window
Have anyone had this experience and should I make up mud flaps for my SUV?
Any suggestions, please ?
Some span a shade net from the rear of the tow vehicle bumper as wide as the vehicle back rearward under neath the A frame right up to the corners of the trailer.
The net is firmly attached along the width of the bumper and only with bundgy cord in the middel and corners of the trailer should you turn sharply the cord can stretch on the outer side.
This way no stones can hit either the A frame or any front part of the trailer. The loose shade net helps absorbing the shock of the stones hitting it thus it lasts longer.
To form a picture, imagine a piece of shade net spread in the gap between the vehicle and the trailer right up against the bottom of the A frame.
Thank You Guys, this makes sense and I will immediately get what I need
Thanks for the advice
Agree with campervan. Just make sure that the flaps is not to long so that they do not hit the ground / road. If this happens it realy kick up more sand and stone. On my last trip to Namibia the caravan axle and front part of the shocks was sand blasted and needed some repaint.
