Our goal is to have these available to roll out late summer/fall 2021.
Will RV-DE-FENDER™ fit my trailer?
RV-DE-FENDER™ is NOT designed to fit specific trailer models, but rather the axle.
These are designed to fit 3500 lbs axles with 10 inch drum brakes, and 5000 to 7000 lbs axles with 12 inch drum brakes.
What colors are available?
Standard color is textured black, which is the most resilent powder coating finish, although we are playing with the idea of doing stainless steel.
We are also thinking of including the ability to update the color of the logo to match your trailer: Red, Blue, Green, Orange, etc.
Custom colors will be accommodated at an additional expence.
Can I install these myself?
Installation is straight forward. You will need to remove the wheel/tire and brake drum to access the hardware required to install RV-DE-FENDER™.
If you wish to have a professional install these for you we are working on creating a network of mobile certified technician to come to you and install at your convienence.
Can I remove RV-DE-FENDER™ from one trailer and move to another?
Yes, as long as both trailers share the same axle size.
Do I need to modify my trailer to make RV-DE-FENDER™ fit?
RV-DE-FENDER™ is designed to bolt on to the axle using existing holes, no cutting, welding or grinding is neccessary.
*You may however need to trim the fender flair depending on application.
I have a 235/85-16 tires will RV-DE-FENDER™ fit?
There are two sizes available, one to fit smaller 14 and 15 inch wheels, and the other to designed to fit tires up to 235/85-16.
I have G Rated Tires, do I still need RV-DE- FENDER™?
G rated tires still blowout.
Recently a family friend had a complete blow out of his 14 Ply G rated tire that was less then 1 year old (see image). The impact tore through the floor and damaged plumbing lines. The initial estimates came in around $5,000.00, but it could have been avoided completely with RV-DE-FENDER™.
I have TMPS sensors, do I still need RV-DE-FENDER™?
Tires have the ability to delaminate and still hold pressure. It is possible for a tire to come apart, damage your trailer without notifying your TPMS.
This can actually be worse than a blowout, because you may not know there is a problem until miles down the road.
Does this restrict airflow causing a build up of heat around the tire?
In our testing, we have seen no difference in temperature using the RV-DE-FENDER™ vs not having it.
