Could have posted this in several places but it applies to Motorhoem Owners in this case.
Roadmaster did offer crash guards/brush guards that plugged int into the horns of the baseplate, but no more. They really didn't market them.
We now have a 2019 Edge ST and it uses mounts that are roudn, and more like Blue ox perhaps.
We have a lot of deer in our area, in our yard and even on the porches..and even a few cattle that get out from behind the fence..In Az we saw lots of Pronghorns and some hti by cars and Elk and Javelinas.
I can buy a crash guard as used on patrol cars but...I would not be able to mount it, I believe without removing the Roadmaster base plate.
I may bee wrong about this.
Has anyone mounted a crash gaurd on their towed vehicle in particular a Ford Edge ST or know of equpmetn that can be used We've hti more than one deer and it is costly.


I'm not sure what you're referring to when you make the statement "crash guards/brush guards that plugged into the horns of the baseplate". However they did offer the "Guardian Rock Shield".

If this is what you're looking for it's still listed as a product on their website. They are available from etrailer, amazon, and many other retailers.

Guardian Rock Shield won't stop much and it blocks the radiator. Overheat big time...plus it stick above the hood.
They made a black and they made chrome brush guard . or whatever their label was. Didn't cost much about 180 to 250 dollars I think I remember. It plugged into the horns in place of the two equipment.
