Mud flaps

Has anyone replaced a mud flap? I have a 2018 17B and lost one of my mud flaps backing into a steep driveway. I called Escape and they suggested that I call Escape’s supplier in the US. Boomerang ( the supplier) won’t sell me a replacement and I am having trouble finding the correct size from other suppliers. Having the Escape logo is not important -I just want the correct size which is 9” x 16”. I would appreciate the name of a supplier if you know of one. Any other suggestions are welcome.

My guess is ETI was trying to save you some shipping cost thinking it would be easier to source in the US. I would be surprised if you got back to them saying the supplier wont sell to you and ETI wouldn't then ship you a replacement.

I like those flaps that have Yosemite Sam on them with the wording "Back Off"!

I think I'd just get something like this - https://www.amazon.com/Highland-1007...ag=googhydr-20
and cut them to size.

I don't have flaps and I'm not sure what purpose they would serve on my 17B.

That is just the answer I wanted to hear. If the flaps don’t serve a purpose then I won’t bother replacing it.

It's a long way from the wheel to the rear of the trailer, which is why I'm not concerned. And, some have worried about the wheel wells chipping. Mine is ten years old and might have a couple chips, but I'd have to look for them.

I think flaps are more important on the tow vehicle, than the trailer.....

My 2015 17A has those 9x16x¼" flaps. They protect the rear 36" of the trailer fiberglass from stone and debris throws from the threads. If we have to replace, I'll for sure just buy the closest size and cut to fit. They are riveted to the body at the lower, back of the wheel well, so that's something to think about when replacing. There is probably access from the inside under the dinette seats.
