Prevent smashed rear windscreens and protect your rear tailgate from stone chips whilst towing
Whilst travelling around Australia it’s not unusual to see some sort of makeshift rear windscreen protection, often in the form of old cardboard boxes held on with tape or some jury-rigged contraption that’s been lovingly manufactured by the driver, but that hardly passes the Australian Standard for safety.
In any conversation with another traveller about their own experiences whilst towing, it’s fair to say that everyone knows a story of someone getting their rear windscreen smashed or the tailgate badly dented by stone chips in a remote part of Australia only to find out that long replacement wait times are standard, unnecessarily high costs apply and the availability of thee types of parts are a bit of a unicorn. Sure, it’s what brings out the tinkerer in all of us to create the cardboard clone of what used to be our back window or back panel until you can reach civilisation again, but prevention is always better than cure!
Fortunately, there is a far better - and often far cheaper - alternative to the middle-of-nowhere-fix that everyone should install on their 4x4 before deciding to tow anything, particularly on unsealed gravel roads.
