    Getting caught up on this thread this sure looks like a quality piece to save a shredded side of an RV. The Fender is 14 ga. steel, .075" thick, pretty heavy duty. The backing plate is 1/8" thick steel, really heavy duty. This should hold up against a tire failure for sure. I would be curious though to the size of bolts needed to attach, this may be the weak point. Weigh may be an issue as well, I do not see a weight for each unit. These would certainly also help with road debris, rocks and such. Mud flaps might be a good addition to the rear fender. The price may be high but compared to the cost of damage that could result may be a moot point.

      Possible disadvantage is that with the fender mounted to the axle, it will move up and down with the axle. This reduces the clearance to the bottom of the trailer deck (the fender may hit the bottom of the deck where the tire wouldn't have)
