Bra for vegas

I'm interested in a bra cover for my 2017 Vegas. No luck finding one so far. Planning on taking a trip way north this summer to Labrador. Some of those roads are still gravel and I would think a bra would provide some protection.

Yeah the low hanging front bumper can get damage from impacts...like this on our Axis:

I've since got it fixed and now our Axis has a unique front paint job:

Wow, must have been a good sized rock.

I'm also interested in a bra to have a bug screen over the front. The ones I've seen include that.

Your local automotive upholstery shop should be able to make a bra for your Vegas.

You might look for a shop that does marine upholstery, they would have better materials that would stand up to sun and road conditions better.

You have to mount metal fasteners. If you enlarge the picture you can see them at the top of the bra. Makes sense, but so far I don't care for it.

Another option is the 3M "clear bra" which is a clear plastic film that is adhered to the front of your RV.
I see that some RV manufacturers are offering it as and option.

Ive read about that. Also heard it is quite expensive. Personally feel that it would be preferable to mounting a bunce of metal fasteners however.
