Camper Trailers Tech Tips

Rock Tamers




rock tamers

The surface conditions of the roads and tracks that we travel across Australia can sometimes test the durability of our vehicles and camper trailers. In addition rocks, stones, mud and tar can damage our camper trailers and their accessories. Aussies are renowned for their resourcefulness and there are many home-made accessories built to reduce this damage, either attached to the vehicle or to a camper trailer.

There is also a commercial product on the market which incorporates many of the best features of the vehicle type of stone guard. Rock Tamers is a mud flap style product attaches to the outside of a normal two inch tow receiver hitch and is able to be removed quickly when not required. It features large heavy duty rubber flaps on each side and adjustable stainless steel support rods to suit various vehicle widths. Built to withstand Aussie conditions, all the fittings are either zinc coated, powder coated, or manufactured from stainless steel resulting in a durable product that will last for many years. Rock Tamers will go a long way towards protecting your vehicle and camper trailer from damage from road debris.
