Stone protectors

Wanted - stone/gravel protectors that snap on the front of a 2013 Escape 19.

I think you'll have to have somebody near you make them. If anybody still has theirs, they'll be in terrible condition, if mine are any example.

Because I didn't want the factory tongue box my 19 came with a vinyl skirt. If you don't mind drilling holes you could probably make them but I think the best protection is a wide tongue box and mud flaps.

I just purchased a 2010 17B and my vinyl protectors are in good shape still. But, I wonder if it would be possible to have someone custom build a diamond plate style protection strip across the front and around the corners. I imagine the problem would be the compound curves at the corners? It would look nicer than the vinyl protectors.

Stone/rock guards

Here is another option to avoid drilling holes. We have an appointment with a local Line-x franchise to have the front & wheel wells of our 5.0 TA Line-X'ed . We chose to color match the graphics. We were quoted USD $1800. which is a lot for some but good insurance against fibreglass repairs. For comparison purposes the quote to redo the rear bumper is USD $300. There is a lot of prep involved with masking, sanding & taping the front of the 5.0 TA. More options to consider.

Line-X was proposed for wheel wells back in 2009. I posted that I would wait until I had enough chips in the gelcoat to concern me, and then I would cover it with Line-X.
I'm still waiting.

I'd check local boat upholstery and canvas shops for price to have them made.

Several years ago, the battery-propane tank on my Bigfoot was in sad shape. I used a product from monstalliner.com that worked very well. It looks similar to "Line-X" It is a very tough, do it yourself roll on textured bed liner that is tintable. I started with the white and mixed in a very small amount of a brown color to get the exact color needed. The material , application tools and masking tape cost less than $200. I was very pleased with the end results.
