    I find that the stonenet ( made out of shade cloth material) sold by Echo works just fine. Cost about R 800 .

    Maybe I was just lucky during out Nam trip.

    My Jurgens Xplorer has a full travel blanket and this worked 100% for protecting the rear section of the 'Jero. There aren't any marks chips scratches at all.

    The van's A frame and tow hitch did take a bit of a beating with paint being chipped off and the yellow reflective tape removed.

    I did see some shade net contraptions on other rigs which really had taken quite a beating and were in shreads.

    I will fit mudflaps/stone guards as close to the rear wheels as possible for the next trip. That will suffice I am sure.

    Cheers

    If you have goose neck, why not fit a bracket on a frame nearest the hitch. To deflect stones down. They canít come back at window unless they it trailer or parts of trailer. Attach at front onto mud flaps. Use shade netting.

    Must be honest, I quite like this concept (inspired by our friends down under)

    A friend of mine also made one but says it buggers up his fuel consumption. One also needs to check if it doesn't effect engine temperature as the through-flow underneath a vehicle is required to get rid of the engine's heat.

    No it does not trap the heat under the vehicle there are plenty of place for the wind to flow through. I cant see how this will affect your consumption that much.

    I have used it over many kms and no overheating of engine or transmission nor did it affect the fuel consumption. It did however stop stone chips and no damage to the rear window or vehicle.
