Hi all, just got back from a Birdsville trip with the van, a 1985 (?) Advance dual axle 17'6" poptop, but the run in from Birdsville to Windorah, although slow was not very kind to the plastic mudguards, and as a result both guards are damaged, fished out a few rocks from inside and a bucket of dust. That aside, anyone know whereI might source replacement mudguards, or maybe just bite the bullet and make new fibreglass or metal ones, couldn't find anything on the net.

Surely over the last 30 odd years I have not been the only person needing plastic guards replaced. My old millard, 20 yrs ago also broke guards when a tyre delaminated.

Went to BigSky in Tingalpa, bloke there 20 yrs in industry said he had never replacead a mudguard, no idea where to source new guards.

Help anyone.

Well, Q. when is a mudguard not a mudguard?
A. when its a wheelbox.........
Took me all day running around to find that out. thanks, Checked the Camec Catalogue, Nothing there.
Finally found out that the Jayco tandam axle gal steel mudguard (wheelbox as fitted to tandem freedom vans), is the exact size (also comes in plastic, but never again)$85 ea cant go wrong.
thanks to those who showed any interest.

Hope that info helps anyone else with smashed plastic mudguards on their vans. Also comes in a single axle size.

Not much use replacing the plastic mudguards until you have fixed the problem of stone damage, asuming that this is what caused the damage.
Sounds like you may need a stone guard of some sort.

I purchased a good second hand camper which had some stone chipping to the ge coat on the leading edge, by the previous owners.
Have fitted a Stone Stomper to limit further damage of this kind.
