BeauDog Posted May 26, 2022 Share Posted May 26, 2022 I have read several threads on this forum regarding various measures current Ollie owners have taken to protect their trailers while towing. Those include installing mud flaps on TV and TT; installing Stone Stompers, Rock Tamers, Bow Buddies, etc. Some of you have the ability and creativity to develop some pretty cool custom products and/or make modifications to existing products. I have neither the ability or the creativity, so out-of-the-box solutions are what I seek. We are scheduled to pick up our Legacy Elite II on August 22, 2022. Between now and then we will be out of the country for about five weeks. We need to get on the stick and get some stuff ordered so that we have it with us when we get to Hohenwald. We are not new to camping, but we are new to trailer camping. So, my questions are: 1. Do Stone Stompers work well right out of the box on the Legacy Elite II, or do they need to be modified (like John and others have done) to be effective? 2. If one has a Stone Stomper installed, is it still important to have mud flaps on the TV? If so, can any of you recommend an especially effective out-of-the-box mudflap that you are happy with that would work in conjunction with a Stone Stomper (we have a 2021 GMC 2500 crew cab)? 3. Am I right in assuming a Rock Tamer type of mud flap would not work with a Stone Stomper because there wouldn't be enough real estate on the stinger of a typical trailer hitch ball mount? 4. I take it from past threads that the only way to mud-flap an Oliver is to individually fabricate the product. Is that right? Are any of you making them for sale to others? 5. What other exterior protective measures should we be prioritizing for the maiden voyage? The maiden voyage will be several weeks, and a few thousand miles, long.
