Rock Guard - What do I Buy?

I will be towing using a tow dolly. I need to purchase a Rock Guard for my 2014 Windsport 34f. What should I buy and where?

I looked under the rear of the Windsport and I did not see much to hang the Rock Guard on...

Think twice about a rock guard ... I've used them and they kick up more rocks than they prevent. Good mud flaps is far better IMO...

I've got over 5K miles towing my Wrangler behind my 32A Hurricane - standard mudflaps - and no issues at all...

Just had to have the Jeep windshield replaced - but that wasn't from being towed - need a rock guard for normal driving!

I had looked into full width guard too - and found the same as TyCreek's experience - they tend to launch more rocks rearward.

The dolly raises the front of the vehicle enough that rocks don't hit the towed vehicle.

We tow on a dolly with a full width solid rubber flap. No rock problems that I am aware of so far. I would have doubts about those paint brush things I see others using. OK if it works for them.
