One of the best ways to travel across the country is in a motorhome. You get the convenience of a home with nice interior, a bathroom and the ability to stop and stay wherever you want – especially during the winter when it gets too cold up north and you can drive south to enjoy the warmth. The only downside is that along the way the roads might be icy or wet and many states still use salt and chemicals to prevent sliding on the road.

Don't let your vehicles get scratched while towing this winter!

What does this mean for you while your flat towing behind your motorhome? You could potentially scratch your beautiful motorhome, vehicle or both. The debris and salt flying up and hitting them is damaging. Luckily, there are two products available at Torklift Central that can easily help prevent this from happening: the Roadmaster Tow Defender and Guardian!

The Roadmaster Tow Defender is perfect for preventing debris from hitting your vehicle and motorhome!

Roadmaster Tow Defender
While towing – having bumper-to-bumper protection is the best and with this heavy-duty nylon screen, the Tow Defender provides just that. Fully extended, the Tow Defender offers 20 square feet of protection. Once you’ve driven south for the winter and are at your destination, it takes minutes to uninstall. Roll it up and snap the elastic straps around each end for storage.


Features of the Roadmaster Tow Defender include: 

  • Quick installation and release
  • Lightweight and compact – weighs just 14.5 lbs and rolls up to a 4-inch diameter
  • Powder coated steel for maximum durability, support and cornering flexibility
  • Reinforced seams and gussets for added longevity
  • Fits all Roadmaster tow bars with quick-disconnect release system

Salt on the winter roads? Not an issue with the Roadmaster Guardian!

As an added bonus, if you tow more than one vehicle, there is a Second Vehicle Kit available that has all the mounting hardware necessary to swap the Guardian from one vehicle to another.

Features of the Roadmaster Guardian include:

  • Made of high-impact polyethylene to absorb the impact of road debris and rocks while towing
  • Can be attached and removed in seconds
  • Fits all Roadmaster tow bars equipped with quick-disconnect release system
  • Gives you the ability to purchase a second kit if you have more than one car you want to tow – you can swap the Guardian from one vehicle to another

The Roadmaster Tow Defender, especially when also used in a combination with the Guardian rock shield, protects your towed vehicle’s finish, headlights and windshield from rocks, gravel and road debris. Making it so your motorhome and towed vehicle are safe and sound while you’re on the open winter roads.
