I'm looking at the BX 8870 Towed Vehicle Protector for our new 2013 CR-V.

 

Does anybody have any info on the rock guards out there ???

 

I have BX Alpha Tow Bar and BX Base Plate.

I use a camping sleep mat from Walmart.  They cost about $8 and I hold them on with 6 foot bungee cords.  Absolutely the best protection from rocks and other debris.  Been throught Alaska and everywhere else without a mark on the front of my Silverado.

I have been flat towing a Subaru Forester for 3 years using the Coastline Tow Car Shield and it has worked well so far. Have a look at the website mentioned by RoryTug.

My OEM rock guard keeps anything from hitting the front of the toad, thus eliminating the need for a car shield.  Here are some pics of others:

We use a Protect-a-tow It is easy to set up, works well, relatively inexpensive. The drawback is it is not too durable. Towed about 16,000 miles last year and it will need replacing in another year, for sure. Replaced the shock cord after 12,000 miles and 9 months (an easy job)
