    We have just driven 50 odd miles in the rain and the side of the van is filthy.
    We have thought about mud flaps, do they really make a difference?
    I see they are around £30 to £80 is it worth paying more for them?

    That reminds me. We drove about the same distance on the motorway in southern France when the thunderstorms struck and the footwell of the hab door got lots of water in it. Mudflaps may have helped but there was a lot of water. Reminds me to check the sealing around there when we get back home.

    I made my own using a 5mm thick rubber curtain from a sand blasting cabinet, which my SiL passed on to me.
    Shared it with a mate that has an H reg Pilote 800.

    Now waiting for some for the rear end.
    However saw a pair of home made, using rubber car floor mats, on a foreign M/H a while ago, starting to think I might go down that road meself

    I have the Ducato ones on the front they do stop some of the spray getting onto the lower door area but the fuel filler area still gets pretty dirty.

    truck spray flaps are much cheaper and easy enough to cut down and fit. The last set i fitted I made them somewhat wider than the fiat or fiamma ones and they worked really well

    I second the fiamma ones, easy to fit.

    Suggest people buy from Ebay.
    Loads of sellers, and at prices that won't break the bank for essentially a couple of bits of rubber and some screws/brackets.

    I buy Land Rover rear flaps for £10 pair and mike my own . I use a rear anti spray curtain which is great for keeping thick dirt on the ground and off my towbar .
