rear skirt/guard??

I own a 2014 Palazzo,
Im looking for a supplier of the rear rock or mud guard ( not sure if I have the correct name) to protect my tow vehicle.
My Rv is a low profile and last summer I did see a couple of Palazzo's with this on and also had the name Palazzo in chrome on it.
Of course they were on the highway so I couldnt ask them.
I cant find this anywhere.
Any suggestions would be great.

May not be stock (OEM). There are several companies on the web that can and will custom make those stone shields with your choice of lettering on the stainless steel plate Custom stone shields is one such company.

I had a rear skirt guard on our Mandalay Presidio and we took it off. It kicked up more stuff than if prevented. Instead we put a Roadmaster Guardian tow shield and that worked the best. Some dinghies don't allow for the Guardian as you can't block the air flow. Bow Roadmaster and Blue Ox have screens that are rated very good and can be used as long as you don't have a diesel rear exhaust.

Don't need one. Use a good pair of regular mud flaps does a better job!

I took off the rear guard (that I thought was supposed to protect the toad) and my toad took on very noticeably less of a beating. Now I consider those back bumper or receiver mounted guards as a really good marketing gimmick that I bought into "once".

X2 on mud flaps or road shield. IMHO better than the full width rock guards. I use a tow dolly so mud flaps were my choice.

Rock guard posting

Thanks for all the information, may just go the wheel route instead of total rear protection

Rock guard location?

For those that have the full width rock guard how far back in the from is yours mounted..
My driveway is sloped so I'll need to back up a ramp when I park and I worry about it dragging itself to death.
I know it needs to be 4" off the ground
TIA
