No one or nothing has ever been hurt by going SLOW. It's speed and rushing that hurts. Dang, I've been on some rough roads, gravel, dirt, mud, snow... slowing down really, really helped.

Safe travels, always.

That is good to hear. We are getting the storage box first to protect the front and second, to use for storage. I still am toying with the idea of having the lower front of the trailer sprayed for protection. Loren

You can always wait ( several years ) and when it's actually pitted, spray it then, restoring it. Assuming you need to and still want to.

The mud flaps on my RAV4 aren't that large, but seem effective. I've got a very few pits and no front box.
