How can you prevent rear windscreen damage when towing?

By Unsealed 4X4 4 Min Read

It’s a sickening feeling. You’re cruising through the outback, towing your camper and you hear an almighty bang. Like a shotgun has just gone off. Once the initial shock settles, it’s pretty easy to work out what just went wrong and why your rear windscreen is in a million pieces now. Sorry, but if you aren’t prepared this is not going to be a fun experience at all. 

What’s the story? 

A rock or other debris has been flicked up by your tow vehicle. It has then hit your camper trailer or caravan. Guess where that tiny little offender will travel next? Yep, it will bounce off the trailer and head directly for your rear windscreen. Which is now shattered into a million pieces. Letting dust and water inside the vehicle. Not to mention your four-wheel drive is now no longer secure if being parked up overnight.  


This is where a product such as the Rhinohide Armor Rear Windscreen Protector comes into play. They have been designed to offer protection thanks to their ability to fend off rocks and other debris that could rebound off the tow vehicle and into your expensive rear windscreen. According to Rhinohide, they are also durable and super easy to use. Sign us up!
