Stone Stomper Stone Guard
The Stone Stomper Stone Guard was developed to reduce the damage from rebounding stones off a trailer to the towing vehicle.
It uses horizontal mesh between the camper and towing vehicle to redirect flying stones back to ground level. Mounted to the camper trailer body, the truck mesh stretches forward to an electroplated framework, fixed to the hitch on the vehicle. A cut-out provides an opening for the coupling, safety chains and electrical harness to slip through the mesh.
Shock cord runs along the perimeter and at regular intervals to prevent sagging, connecting to the framework via metal clasps. The shock cord can be tightened over time to allow for stretch in the cord. A vertical canvas curtain hangs from the framework beneath the hitch and pivots to a horizontal position when in motion to block the narrow gap between the framework and the mesh. If you need to access the rear of the vehicle, simply lean on the shock cord or remove one of the clasps.
The Ultimate Stone Guard
The underslung mesh not only protects the vehicle and trailer panel work, but the A-frame, gas bottles and other components. The mesh is not shade cloth but an industrial strength truck mesh, reinforced in all the right places.
On unsealed roads, the Stone Stomper Stone Guard provides very good protection. We have not sustained any damage during 60,000km of use as a result of the extensive protection. Even better, there is no additional drag like the massive block-like mudflaps. In my mind, it’s an integrated solution providing the best protection available for both the vehicle and camper.
When unhitching, simply remove the six clasps from the framework and roll the mesh up under the drawbar. The framework can easily be removed from the vehicle when not in use.
We now have a customised stone guard package for both the Pod Trailer and Rhinomax Campers which retails for $700 and $800 respectively, fitted.Enquire about Stone Stomper Stone Guard
