Hi guys. Have removed the stone guard from my camper trailer as most of the rocks hit the trailer anyway and what hit the guard sometimes bounce back into car. I was going to make a rock tamer but was wondering the best material to let air flow under the car and also keep the rocks contained. Any ideas photos or hints would be gratefully recieved. Thanks Kirk.

G`day Kirk,

Have a look here ....... eBay item number:121177045623

Thanks Scrubby. I have been after something like that for the bottom of a gate to keep the snakes and rabbits out of our yard. They have a shorter bit that may do for the gate in mind.

Go to this page. Scroll down to the heading "diy projects" (in the middle column) and then go down to the heading on the side "stone guards." You will see links to 7 pages of them, the last one has many projects on it, just click the photos for larger pictures.

Something there should take your fancy to build for yourself.

Hi kirk
I can highly recommend stone stomper, as a very good stone stopper as we have one and it works great, as well it makes the dust go under your trailer/ caravan Australian made very good product.

I'll second the Stone Stomper, or at least a home made knockup.
A horizontal trapeze style guard is much more effective than a vertical one.
I use a Stone Stomper and not only does it keep rocks, etc. underneath where they belong, but reduces dirt buildup as well.
Have tried a Rock Tamer (Big flaps at the rear) and was amazed at the rocks I could see ejected sideways, potentially into passing traffic from either direction. It did not protect the underneath of the camper either.

The investment in a Stone Stomper is well worth while to protect your trailer or caravan from impact material. It also eliminates the "sand blasting" effect on the A frame.
