How about a "bullet-Proof" toad?
Although in this case: it's a turtle!

There are threads talking about some of the options... depends somewhat on what you are towing.
My 2010 Wrangler sits high enough that any rocks leaving the motor home travel under the Jeep... so I use nothing. Iíve broken infinitely more windshields on the Jeep driving it vs towing (2 vs 0... lol)
A lower sitting car might be a different story.

I think I've seen rear "flaps" on the RVs, that were almost made out of a bristle-like material.
What are they, and where can you get them?
(Got our Toad, and are preparing to get it ready for the pulling!

We use a Roadmaster Tow Defender. Not taking a chance on chipping up the DW's new Cherokee. Seems to keep all the road spray off the front end as well when driving in the rain

Here is the link to RoadMaster's site with a description of both the Defender and the Guardian. Both of them combined are referred to as the "Alaska Pack".

One nice thing about towing with a dolly is the front end of the toad is high enough to miss most of the gravel dings.

We've used a Protect A Tow for about ten years and recommend it. They run about $250 online. Here's the link: Protect-a-Tow

We also tow a Wrangler-the Aria has the full-width stone protector behind the back wheels and we've had no issues with chipped paint or glass. It rode behind our previous two rigs as well-again with no issues.
