    image.jpeg Completed fit of dirt skirt today. Needed to fit aluminium angle to towbar frame for support but all neat and tidy and hopefully a cleaner toad.

    cheers kevan, just been reading the reviews on these dirt skirts, and a lot of folk are saying they don't work.
    on my chieftain, if i drive through rain, it's very dirty at the back.

    Can that work ? If the castor touches down it is going to lift the whole MH, needs one hell of a castor.

    I had a pair of steel rollers on the rear of the RV and yes they will pick the back up when grounding.

    And a hell of a strong towbar to fix it to.
    Consider most towbars have a 50kg to 100kg downforce limit....that has to apply the other way too, an upforce limit.
    They only really have one use....to alert you you have grounded in the same way the towbar does but without ripping a trench in the tarmac.
