Don't forget that your tow vehicle is going to get the worst of wear on your trips. Most RV towing guides recommend protecting your tow vehicle from debris, kicked up rocks, dust, and exhaust by using a tow car shield. There are several different models to choose from, but they all mount on the front of your tow vehicle to protect the body and windshield from debris, dust, and other road hazards.
Some of these shields mount directly on your tow bar, so they remain on the bar when you unhitch the vehicle, making it much easier to just get in the vehicle and go once you've arrived at your campsite. Others mount directly onto the car, covering the entire hood, windshield and fenders.
