Default Hull protection when traveling?

Does anyone wrap the front of hull when road trip 500 or more miles? Road chips can be an issue. Oversize mudflaps or what do you use if anything? Thanks.

I had the same problem and put these brush things on. I see them on alot of motorhomes to protect their towed cars. They have worked well for myself. You can go all the way across the back of the truck if you want, I left a opening in the middle for the hitch. You might want to try Camping World thats where these came from and they also have other types. Doug

I looked at the RV brush type at 1st until I took a small rock from the parking lot and tossed it towards the guard and it went thru it. So I went the solid rubber type.
