mud flaps ?

hi,just a question about flaps, on the way down high 5 in calif last week it was pouring all the way to pismo beach,when we finally arrived at pismo rv park we could not see out of our 2955rl,s rear window.we washed the window,but was wondering if there was a way to put some type of flap on the rear of the unit.i know there's no bumper and i havent checked cw catalog yet, just asking thx.the rear of the unit was a mess.another thing pismo rv resort is a great place to say on the central coast of calif.

What is created behind the 5th wheel is a negative flow area, like you see on a SUV or Suburban, when the rear is all covered with dirt or dust.
On my wife's Suburban we had to put a air flow scoop near the top of the door to direct air flow into the area.
So I don't think that mud flaps would help.
Just my thoughts!!

I agree with Carlson. When you are moving, the debris is not coming off your wheels particularly, but is sucked into the back your RV by the vacuum created behind your unit.

thanks for the input,the more i thought about it when your following a "class a" they don't have mud flaps but soomething like a black hula skirt on the back of the unit hanging almost to the ground,thats what i was thinking of.once again thx for the info.

Mike, I may be wrong but I think that skirt is to be nice to you following in your little sports car. Stops the wheel wash.
