Here is my design for simple Mudflaps for the rear of my GU to protect the camper trailer.
Used 30x30 mm gal tube, gal flat bar, 8mm bolts and sheet rubber. The setup is simply bolted to the tow bar. Originally made for the 2.8d then modified to suit the replacement 2000 4.2td with 3" exhaust. The following pictures show the design making dimensions here unnecessary. And yes I did adjust the mudflap(after I took the photo) so that it doesn't touch the exhaust.

Great idea freddofrog. Think I might need to do something similar.

My trailer underside, is totally stripped of paint despite the big stone guard on the front. I busted a back window on my last trip from a rock bouncing off the trailer despite the stone guard. I think it actually hit the trailer tyre and bounced back.

Good Job, a lot cheaper than the original version.

I found the stone guard on my trailer to be more like a trampoline for rocks. My old wagon cop'd an absolute pislin.
