If you find yourself towing any type of vehicle, boat, trailer, bike, atv, etc. than this article is meant for you. So what is a hitch mount mud flap system? Lets get down to the basics.

Removable Splash Guard & Mud Flap Systems are typically attached to the ball mount that is inserted into your receiver hitch. To give you some background, a receiver is what attaches to the frame of your Truck, SUV or RV. The hitch mount or ball mount is what slides into the receiver. Removable systems do not attach to the actual receiver. Because the systems are placed directly on the ball mount you are allowed the freedom to attach and remove your flaps every time you tow your investments.

Removable systems have been developed as a preventative tool to aid in towing expensive possessions. They are hands down the best systems to prevent rock damage to towables...period. Why? Removable systems are located far enough away from the rear tires so rocks and water spray does not fly under flap. These removable systems also offer a larger than normal mud flaps and some offer full coverage across the back of your Truck, SUV or motorhome. The full coverage mud flaps systems are going to offer you the most coverage of any flap hands down.

There are a variety of different materials that are offered for removable systems to help your ride stand out. The first is known as a "Grass Skirt" which attaches to the bumper or receiver hitch and is made of a strong plastic based brush that is stiff enough to prevent rocks and sand from passing through and damaging the towed vehicle or trailer. Check out Towtector for grass skirt applications. The second is your "Rubber Mud Flap" which is typically a heavy duty rubber composite that is heavy enough to stop debris but stiff enough to withstand high winds. Check out Rock Tamers, Roadwing, and Tainium for rubber flap applications. The third type is a "Rubber strip" application which allows maximum protection but is more likely to be forgiving on bumps and flaps more in the wind. Check out Rock Solid for this application. The forth is a "Full Protection Rubber Flap" that covers the entire rear end of your vehicle and offering full protection for your towable. Check out Ultra Guard for this application.

So now that you have purchased a removable hitch mount system, you need to take care of it. It is very important that you do not allow these units to hang too close to the ground. If they are allowed to drag on the ground they may actually kick up rocks and do the opposite of what they were meant to do. If you tow anything for an kind of distance, we highly recommend purchasing a Hitch Mount System.
