Thanks, everyone, for the input. Obviously, mudflaps are the first step. I hesitate putting a tarp or blanket on the hull because I've seen what a flapping tarp does to a car's paintjob .... I'm curious about the long-haired mud-flap: does it actually work? I've also seen actual vee-shaped plastic sheilds mounted on the front of the trailer. Anyone with experience with them? The bubble wrap sounds like somebody's pulling my leg but it just might work. The only problem being possibly tape residue or the tape taking off the paint .
